Amsterdam Internet Exchange deploys metro 100 Gbps from ADVA Optical Networking
Systems house ADVA Optical Networking says that the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) will deploy ADVA’s 4x28-Gbps approach to metro 100-Gbps transmission as part of a new core network build that will connect data center locations throughout Amsterdam.This is the first customer ADVA has announced for its metro-focused 100-Gbps approach, which is available as a line card for its FSP 3000 platform (see “ADVA Optical Networking offers cost-reduced 100-Gbps for metro networks”). Rather than use the dual-polarization quadrature phase-shift keying (DP-QPSK) with coherent detection common for long-haul 100-Gbps applications, ADVA transmits four channels of 28 Gbps each using optical duo-binary modulation. The direct-detection approach is significantly less expensive than DP-QPSK and coherent detection, ADVA asserts, while still meeting metro requirements (see “ADVA talks metro 100G” on the Lightwave Channel).The company says that AMS-IX ran the technology through several tests, both at ADVA’s facility in Meiningen, Germany, and in a live testbed. AMS-IX came away convinced that the technology would meet its expanding bandwidth needs."We are experiencing exponential growth in data transported over the exchange platform," said Henk Steenman, CTO at AMS-IX. "We expect that this growth will continue in the next three years. To accommodate this development we are expanding and upgrading the core of our network. Upgrades will be based on new 100G technology and ADVA Optical Networking provides us with a 100G optical network solution to be used in the Amsterdam metro area.""Today's networks are undergoing a radical transformation," commented Christoph Glingener, CTO at ADVA Optical Networking. "The demand for 100G technology is growing rapidly, especially as 10G density reaches capacity. Service providers need to ensure they can respond to customers' data demands and do so effectively. This is particularly true in the metro. Our direct detection 100G Metro solution is the first of its kind to do exactly this."
Prysmian jumps into fiber to the antenna
Prysmian Group has signaled its entry into the fiber to the antenna (FTTA) market at CommunicAsia 2012 in Singapore. The company used the event to unveil xsMobile, designed to meet the emerging tower cabling requirements the evolution towards 4G/LTE mobile networks has created.xsMobile targets the full range of FTTA applications, from a flexible, easily upgradeable backhaul network through to last-mile fiber to the Remote Radio Head (RRH) in the antenna tower. xsMobile features bend-insensitive BendBrightXS optical fiber (compliant to ITU-T G.652.A2/B2) complemented by a suite of optical cable products (pre-terminated or field-spliced) and what Prysmian asserts is a “full connectivity portfolio.” The new product range builds on Prysmian’s experience with FTTH and is fully compatible with existing fiber-optic networks. The line is designed to support fast, simple, plug and play FTTA installation.
Symphonet selects Calix for broadband roll-out in Malaysia
Calix Inc. (NYSE: CALX) says Malaysian service provider Symphonet Sdh Bhd has chosen the Calix E7-2 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) for the roll-out of new high-speed broadband networks in Kuala Lumpur and Johore Bahru.The network will use point-to-point Gigabit Ethernet technology over fiber to deliver advanced broadband services, including IPTV, on-demand video, and broadband speeds of up to 10 Gbps to businesses in the two cities. At each fiber-served premises, Symphonet will deploy the Calix 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs), including the 716GE-I indoor and 766GX business and mobile backhaul ONTs.“We have a very clear vision of what we want to offer our customers, especially for the business sector, in terms of performance and quality of service,” said Dato’ Baharum Salleh, CEO of Symphonet. “Calix was able to demonstrate to us that their solution will deliver on that vision cost-effectively and with a good return on investment. The modular nature of the solution ideally fits our business model in terms of building our subscriber base and we are delighted that this will be a highly reliable, flexible, and manageable solution.”“Consumer and business demand for advanced broadband services is growing rapidly across Malaysia and the rest of Asia as broadband-ready devices proliferate and content continues to move to the cloud,” said Andy Lockhart, senior vice president of international sales and marketing at Calix. “With Symphonet’s advanced new service offerings, residences and businesses in Malaysia’s two largest cities will take a major step forward – able to enjoy some of the fastest broadband services in all of Asia.”
