TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – PacketLight Networks has announced a partnership with Atlantic Metro to upgrade its existing dense division wavelength multiplexing (DWDM) network routes to 200G capacity. PacketLight extended capacity using its alien wavelength solution and adding a 200G single coherent wavelength. Atlantic Metro provides cloud hosting, nationwide network connectivity, and secure data centre colocation to over 1,100 customers ranging from Fortune 500 enterprises, to healthcare organisations, legal firms, web start-ups, media, and retail.
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL & ONTARIO, CA – PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of DWDM and optical fibre networking solutions, today announced a partnership with Niagara Regional Broadband Network (NRBN) to build a high capacity, high speed network that will support all municipalities, universities, schools, hospitals and businesses in the Niagara region.
PacketLight Networks has launched the PL-2000ADS, a 200G 1U multi-protocol multi-rate muxponder/transponder device for short-haul and encryption applications.
The new unit is designed for high-capacity optical transport in short haul, campuses, and access networks. With low power consumption and compact dimensions, the PL-2000ADS reduces the overall cost of providing these high-capacity links over shorter distances, according to PacketLight.
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
