Delight for Turk Telecom and Huawei
ICT solutions provider Huawei and telecommunications operator Turk Telekom have announced the successful trial of a 2T WDM system on the Turkish company's live network.
Claiming the industry's largest capacity and highest spectral efficiency (SE) to date, the field trial achieved 40 Tb/s C-band transmission over a single fibre, equivalent to simultaneous transmission of up to 10,000,000 channels of HD videos.
The trial was over 307 km of G.652 fibres between Ankara, the capital of Turkey, and the town of Cankiri. Using advanced 32QAM modulation, the WDM system delivered a net SE of up to 8 b/s/Hz or 40Tb/s C-band transmission, meaning a capacity four times higher than mainstream commercial 100G systems.
