Cignal AI has released its Optical Applications Report for the third quarter of 2018, which details a healthy growth of coherent 200G shipments during the period, even slowing the adoption of lower 100G speeds.
Infinera has enhanced the open line system (OLS) capabilities of the Infinera Groove G30 Network disaggregation platform.
Infinera has partnered with Telia Carrier to demonstrate what the companies say is the first real-time transmission of 600Gb/s wavelengths in a live production network.
TalkTalk Telecom is deploying Infinera’s XTM II platform into its metro aggregation network, to further enable the provider’s delivery of reliable and scalable services to residential and business customers.
Infinera has successfully completed of a series of submarine field trials over MAREA, a 6,600km submarine cable between Virginia Beach, Virginia and Bilbao, Spain. The trials used the company’s fourth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4) advanced coherent technology to help achieve new records for trans-Atlantic real-time spectral efficiency.
Brazilian regional service provider, Copel Telecom has deployed 200G optical transmission technology from Coriant to scale its fibre optic backbone network in the State of Paraná.
Infinera has announced its intent to acquire hyperscale network solution provider, Coriant in a move designed to scale the company as the next wave of global network spending begins.
SSE Enterprise Telecoms has made what it calls its biggest network technology investment to date in the introduction of a new technology platform with Infinera, deploying its XTM Series to deliver low latency, flexibility and improved scalability.
The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) took to the podium at this year’s NGON and DCI Europe conference in Nice to reveal the results of its 2018 Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Transport Application Programming Interface (T-API) multi-vendor interoperability demonstration.
International network service provider RETN is deploying the Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS to scale network capacity for its large international wholesale and enterprise customer base.
RETN operates a backbone network that spans 33,000km of fibre and connects 34 countries across Europe, Asia and North America. The provider has previously deployed the Infinera DTN-X, XT-500 and Cloud Xpress throughout Europe and Russia.

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
