New Zealand operator, Chorus has reached 500,000 ultra-fast broadband connections on its network. As part of the announcement the company also revealed that it plans to reduce the wholesale price of its premium fibre product.
New Zealand service provider, Chorus has collaborated with Nokia on an open access network infrastructure designed to help fulfil on-demand service for optical services.
Based on emerging MEF Layer 1 standards, the Nokia wavelength service was selected to aid Chorus with the delivery of fully instrumented, standards-based optical services to existing customers, whilst facilitating new channels to market.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
