GBI, Xtera claim first repeatered 100-Gbps cable system
Gulf Bridge International (GBI), which operates the Middle East’s first carrier neutral regional network, and systems house Xtera Communications Inc. say that GBI has put into service what the two parties believe is the first commercial repeatered submarine cable system with 100-Gbps technology.The 100-Gbps link, which connects Egypt to Italy, uses Xtera’s multi-purpose Nu-Wave Optima platform in a submarine line terminal equipment (SLTE) configuration. The Nu-Wave Optima configuration for regional repeatered submarine cable systems includes a line monitoring module used for the supervision of the submerged repeaters.GBI offers routes from Europe to the Middle East and on to Asia (see "GBI undersea cable system ready for service"). The 100G line transmission rate deployment, which was announced 6 months ago, will play a key role in GBI’s service delivery strategy.“We are pleased to be working with Xtera to achieve this landmark 100G deployment in the Mediterranean,” commented Ahmed Mekky, board member and CEO of GBI. ”Today’s announcement reflects our ongoing commitment to be the region’s most advanced subsea cable operator and to ensure that our customers benefit from the latest technological advancements.”“Xtera is proud to support GBI in the execution of their ambitious project to improve the international connections to the Middle East. The deployment of our 100G technology on a repeatered subsea link is further evidence of Xtera’s capability to improve the capacity and efficiency of all optical long-haul transmission infrastructures,” said Jon Hopper, President and CEO of Xtera.
tw telecom offers national Ethernet services
tw telecom inc. (NASDAQ: TWTC) says it now offers an Ethernet service suite that provide business Ethernet reach across the United States to thousands of enterprise customers and buildings through a single Ethernet connection scalable to 10 Gbps.Through a single network connection in one location, the new Business Ethernet service can be delivered to virtually any building or data center in the United States across tw telecom's 75-market national footprint, the carrier asserts. The service, based on MEF-certified Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) standards, can enable carriers and cloud applications providers to reach end user locations across a secure, scalable, and trusted network, tw telecom adds. The new Business Ethernet service enables customers to avoid capital investments, reduce operating costs, and more easily manage this capability operationally, the company concludes.
Corning Cable Systems upgrades fiber-to-the-antenna offering
Corning Cable Systems LLC, part of Corning Inc.’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, has announced additions to its range of products for remote radio head (RRH) and related fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) applications. The new members of the line include OptiSheath MF2 and MF4 MultiPort Fiber Terminal Solutions, Remote Radio Distribution Terminal (RRDT) and Remote Radio Cable Assembly (RRCA) products, and a Sealed Remote Radio Distribution Terminal (SRRDT) for tower and rooftop wireless applications.The OptiSheath MF2 and MF4 MultiPort Fiber Terminal Solutions include terminals with two optical fibers per port (MF2) or four optical fibers per port (MF4), and remote radio cable assemblies (RRCAs). The fiber optic cable assemblies create the fiber-optic link between the remote radio unit and a tower-top consolidation terminal in FTTA applicatons.The multi-port terminals are also available with or without an integrated cable stub for connection of a custom cable assembly. The integrated cable stub is available in a range of cable lengths, with both flat and round cable designs. The stub can be ordered with a bare end for splicing, or preterminated for plug-in connections. Non-stubbed terminals are used with a cable assembly with one multifiber connector (the OptiTip Vertical Cable Assembly) as an input from the tower base station.The new RRDT and RRCA products are designed to create a direct optical link between the remote radio head and the base transceiver station. The RRDT can be configured for optical-only applications, optical and surge protection, or with an optical and electrical connection. The housing is lightweight for easy handling by installation crews, offering 24-fiber capacity, with the ability to support up to 12 remote radios at two fibers per radio. Surge protectors are available to help minimize outages due to lightning strikes and power surges, or low-cost terminal blocks can be selected when surge protection isn’t required.The RRCAs are constructed using FREEDM Fan-Out Riser-Rated Indoor/Outdoor Cables. Vertical tower cable assemblies are constructed using FREEDM Riser-Rated Indoor/Outdoor Cables and can be ordered in a range of assembly lengths to support customer-specific FTTA applications.Finally, the SRRDT has a rugged IP68-rated housing to keep out moisture and dust, and combines electrical and optical management into a single housing to reduce installation time. Like the RRDT, the SRRDT can be configured for optical-only applications, optical and surge protection, or with an optical and electrical connection. LC duplex connectors inside the housing provide optical connectivity between vertical cable assemblies and RRCAs. The SRRDT has a 36-fiber capacity, enough to provide up to 18 radios two fibers each for optical support.
