TransTeleCom shifts international backbone traffic to Long Haul DWDM

Russian CSP TransTeleCom has shifted all its international backbone traffic to a Long Haul DWDM network.

TransTeleCom’s network stretches across 20,000 km, and enables the safe transmission of traffic with a minimal round trip delay by using a comparatively low number of regeneration points (the network nodes where opto-electrical conversion of DWDM channels takes place, converting an optical signal to an electrical signal and vice versa).

The network has a capacity of up to 80 optical channels with bandwidth of 100G each, significantly increasing the volume of traffic transmitted through one spectral channel. TransTeleCom’s network architecture is optimal for fast, reliable traffic transmission, with standby switchover of channels in force majeure circumstances taking less than 50 milliseconds.

TransTeleCom holds nearly 20% of the global data transmission market between China and Europe, which is half the transit traffic market through Russia. Advanced telecommunications equipment has made it possible to build the world’s longest non-regenerated transmission span in land line networks, stretching across than 4,000 km - the length of the redundant route from St. Petersburg to Omsk.

“There are high demands on modern multi-service transport networks. Long Haul surpasses all existing communication networks in Russia in speed, reliability and development potential. Latency between Frankfurt and Hong Kong is only 153ms. TransTeleCom has been gradually shifting the traffic of its international customers to the new network, and this process is now complete,” said Roman Kravtsov, President of TransTeleCom.
