Televõrgu AS has deployed the ADVA Optical Networking’s 100G Core to connect Northern and Eastern European countries to Central Europe over a route running through the Baltic States and Poland.
Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000, the ADVA 100G Core uses coherent detection technology and RAMAN amplification to transport up to 9.6Tbit/s of data across 3,000km of fibre without regeneration and without any dispersion compensation. Together with flexgrid reconfigurable add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) technology, this system is ready to carry future bandwidth services, such as 400Gbit/s, across the whole fibre route that stretches from Frankfurt, Germany to Tallinn, Estonia.
“Our new route has been extremely well received by customers, and almost 20% of the whole capacity is already in use” said Ove Ant, CEO, Televõrgu. “This network provides a lot of new opportunities in means of features, future deployments and services.”
Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking, said: “Transporting 9.6Tbit/s of data over 3,000km with no regeneration and with no dispersion compensation is a significant achievement, and with the flexibility of our ROADM technology, Televõrgu now has an incredibly powerful and dynamic long-haul infrastructure.”
