RETN, an international network service provider, has announced the launch of a new fibre route connecting Berlin in Germany and Poznan and Warsaw in Poland.
The existing paths between Germany and Poland are, RETN says, one of its most trafficked routes, linking the core of its Western and Eastern European networks. Thus, the new 780-kilometre route is described as a significant addition to the company's Central and Eastern European network, providing a unique additional diverse route and much increased capacity between Germany and Poland.
The new route is using dark fibre laid alongside gas and oil infrastructure, providing additional security and protection with what is described as near-perfect historical availability on most sections. The configuration allows for lower-latency services between Berlin and other parts of Northern Germany, and Warsaw. Furthermore, additional metro fibre in Poznan allows customers to mix both existing and new routes for optimum diversity.
As the entire European DWDM (dense wavelength-division multiplexing) network is based on the new generation FlexILS Infinera Line System, RETN says this new route has been implemented with the same technology, ensuring what it describes as high-quality and record-fast service delivery.
RETN says this project fits well within its strategy of adding long-haul fibre density in the core of its European network.
