Prysmian Group to supply FTTH cables to Telecom Argentina
Prysmian Group says it has won a contract from Telecom Argentina for the supply and installation of cable for Telecom Argentina’s GPON fiber to the home (FTTH) build out. Telecom Argentina expects the GPON FTTH network to serve 4000 homes with an initial take-up rate of just under 40%.Installation contractor Valtellina Sud América S.A will perform the actual network installation, Prysmian revealed.This initial two-year project is the first stage of Telecom Argentina’s FTTH broadband plan, focused primarily on Buenos Aires. The Prysmian cable will be used in three GPON FTTH applications: closed (condominium) environments, new multiple dwelling units (MDUs), and in neighborhoods.Prysmian said it won the contract in an open competition. It will supply cables with both standard G.652 and BendBright G.657 bend insensitive fibers, as well as a range of passive connectivity components.Said Gustavo Etchepare, CEO of Prysmian Group in Argentina, “This is a highly significant project for both Telecom Argentina and Prysmian Group. Consumer demand for greater bandwidth continues to grow and the only true future-proof way of keeping pace with this demand is to install optical fiber closer and closer to the final customer. Telecom Argentina recognize this and we are both delighted to be working with them on this project and determined to provide them with the system they need to meet their customer needs both now and well into the future.”
XO Communications chooses Nokia Siemens Networks for nationwide 100G network
Communications service provider XO Communications has begun rolling out 100-Gbps wavelengths on a U.S. nationwide fiber-optic backbone network using coherent-based technology from Nokia Siemens Networks. XO chose Nokia Siemens Networks’ technology over that of its other incumbent long-distance platform supplier, Infinera.According to XO Senior Vice President and CTO Randy Niklas, the first-of-its-kind national network initially will see four to six wavelengths of 100-Gbps traffic traveling over previously unlit fiber. The routes will have the capacity to handle 96 wavelengths, either with newly installed Nokia Siemens Networks hiT7300 systems or, in the near-term future, upgrades to the hiT7300 platforms XO already had in its network (see "Nokia Siemens Networks raises hand for XO Communications 40G deployment").The 100-Gbps wavelengths will derive from multiplexed 10-Gbps traffic, Niklas told Lightwave. However, conversations are already underway with wholesale and client service customers who might require 100-Gbps connections. Along these lines, XO has completed 100-Gbps interface certification on Cisco routers and is doing the same with Juniper Networks routers, Niklas added.Niklas said that XO did not conduct an RFP for the backbone project, but turned to its incumbent suppliers. He said Nokia Siemens Networks was chosen because it could deliver 100-Gbps capabilities to XO’s amortization targets better than Infinera. “And we frankly got good business terms,” he added.XO has partially completed the roll out, with work ongoing in its West Coast, Northeast corridor, and southwest territories. Meanwhile, the company has already turned its attention to shorter reach applications, thanks to interest from a major wireless carrier customer that wants 100-Gbps connectivity to its switching centers. To meet such requirements, XO also is certifying platforms from Ciena and Cisco for 100-Gbps performance.This is the first announced 100-Gbps customer in North America, Jim Benson, head of Optical Networks for the Americas at Nokia Siemens Networks, confirmed. However, he indicated that XO isn’t the company’s only customer on the continent. Nokia Siemens Networks announced a pair of European 100G customers previously (see “Nokia Siemens Networks, FastWeb deploy 100G in Italy” and “TeliaSonera International Carrier taps Nokia Siemens Networks for 100-Gbps technology”).
SomCable taps Optelian for IP over DWDM network
SomCable, a Somaliland-registered fiber-optic service provider, is deploying an IP over DWDM network using optical transport equipment from Optelian, the systems house says. The service provider, which is constructing the Berbera landing station that will connect Somaliland to submarine cable networks in the Red Sea, use Optelian’s LightGAIN system on a terrestrial backbone network.“After exploring various network architectures, we converged on a next-generation IP over Dense Wave Division Multiplexing optical network to carry voice and data traffic throughout Somaliland and Optelian provides exactly what we are looking for,” explains Michael Cothill, CEO of SomCable. “With our aggressive plans to provision a new terrestrial backbone to transport all wireless and Internet traffic, SomCable needs an easy-to-use, reliable, and scalable solution that will allow us to start small and grow to meet our customers’ needs.”“SomCable designed a state-of-the art next-generation network, so the advanced functionality along with the easy plug-and-play engineering of Optelian’s optical transport solutions serves them well,” states Mike Perry, president at Optelian. The LightGAIN system’s modular architecture and support for alien-wavelengths should prove particularly useful, Perry added.
