LION2 submarine network consortium uses Ciena switching gear
Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN) says the consortium behind the Lower Indian Ocean Network (LION) undersea fiber-optic cable network is using the company’s CoreDirector FS Multiservice Optical Switch for the LION2 network extension project. As part of this recently inaugurated phase, the already deployed and operational CoreDirector FS switches are connecting Kenya and the island of Mayotte in the Mozambique Channel, Madagascar, Reunion, and Mauritius.LION2 is a 2,700 km-extension of the LION regional cable system. It connects two new submarine stations in Mombasa on the Kenyan coast and on the French island of Mayotte to existing stations in Madgascar, La Réunion, and Mauritius. In addition to upgrading services in the region, the new cable also offers an alternative route for broadband smissions to Europe and Asia for other African countries.Delivered in a turnkey deployment project, the CoreDirector FS nodes are meshed together and used as intelligent SDH interconnection equipment to aggregate local traffic into 10-Gbps submarine wavelengths. The nodes leverage the self-healing capabilities enabled via Ciena’s OneConnect Intelligent Optical Control Plane. In the wake of a failure, the control plane will enable the rerouting of services. The consortium will manage the network with Ciena’s management system.The LION2 consortium includes France Telecom with three partners of the Orange Group – Mauritius Telecom, Orange Madagascar, and Telkom Kenya – as well as the African carrier Emtel Ltd. and Société Réunionnaise du Radiotéléphone, a subsidiary of the French telecommunications group SFR.“The LION project is a truly pioneering enterprise, literally delivering broadband for the very first time to some of the Indian Ocean islands to connect them with the rest of the world,” said Yves Ruggeri, chairman of the LION 2 Management Committee. “Ciena’s intelligent networking technology, deployed in both phases of the project, is a critical element of the overall solution, offering unmatched resiliency and ensuring maximum network uptime for both the operators involved, and – more importantly – their customers.”“The expansion of the LION project is excellent news for the population of Mayotte, the Indian Ocean Islands and East Africa,” added Eric Sele, vice president of sales, Southern and Central Europe, Middle East and Africa at Ciena. “The high-capacity services that can now be delivered to these regions will allow both local enterprises and individual consumers to benefit from significantly faster Internet speeds – a service that we have come to take for granted in the western world, but one which will no doubt have substantial economic impact on the region.”
Corning Cable intros drop cable for easy FTTH installation
Corning Cable Systems LLC, part of Corning Inc.’s (NYSE:GLW) telecommunications segment, has introduced a new drop cable aimed at fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) markets. The company claims that ROC Dielectric Drop Cables with FastAccess technology enables faster and easier removal of the cable jacket, which reduces fiber access time by up to 55% when compared to traditional drop cables.Suitable for both field- and factory-termination processes, the compact design of the ROC Dielectric Drop Cables with FastAccess technology enables easier handling in the field, reduces slack storage requirements, and improves transportation and storage costs, Corning Cable asserts.Unlike some outdoor dielectric cables that require special tools for cable access, such as hook blades, FastAccess technology requires no special tools, thereby lowering costs. The dielectric nature of the cable also eliminates any bonding and grounding requirements, the company says.ROC Dielectric Drop Cables with FastAccess technology are backwards compatible for easy connectorization or splicing, and are also available in preconnectorized assemblies.
Ensphere 10G optical transceiver powers optical Thunderbolt cables
Ensphere Solutions Inc., a fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Santa Clara, CA, says the first hunderbolt active optical cables (AOC) to enter the market are based on its ESI-XVR10100 optical transceiver.Thunderbolt is a high-speed PC connection technology developed by Intel Corp., initially under the name LightPeak. It provides bi-directional 10-Gbps data transmission, and is PCI Express and DisplayPort compatible. Sumitomo started shipping Thunderbolt cables back in April (see "Sumitomo Electric samples optical Thunderbolt cable")."Our first optical Thunderbolt cables chose an optical engine design based on the Ensphere ESI-XVR10100 due to its excellent match with our overall design requirements," said Shigeo Saito, executive officer, deputy general manager, electronics business unit and general manager of electronic wire division, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd.Ensphere says the ESI-XVR10100 optical transceiver device is ideally suited for optical Thunderbolt cable designs. The device offers two 10-Gbps lanes, on-chip thermal sensors and VCSEL compensation logic to ensure the best overall performance. OEM customers can pre-program special operating characteristics into its OTP memory, and can add up to four slave devices for applications requiring wider parallel interfaces."Optical cable suppliers know the importance of choosing high performance 10-Gbps optical engines with a careful balance of silicon CMOS performance, low power operation, and low-profile products in order to meet the overall optical Thunderbolt design requirements," said Hessam Mohajeri, founder and CEO of Ensphere. "That the first such cables to enter the market have chosen the Ensphere ESI-XVR10100 is an acknowledgement of our design and delivery capabilities."The ESI-XVR10100 is currently available in die form in production quantities.
