Munich -- Coriant, a global supplier of open, disruptive and hyperscale networking solutions for service providers and web-scale Internet operators, and Fastweb, one of the major Italian telecommunications operators, today announced that Fastweb has deployed a protected 300 Gbps connection spanning more than 950 kilometers on its long haul backbone network using Coriant CloudWave Optics technology.
The 300 Gbps connectivity service connects Fastweb PoPs between Rome and Milan via Turin (more than 950 km) as the primary path and via Florence-Bologna (more than 800 km) as the protected path. The long distance service has been implemented without special amplifiers, tuning or changes in field hardware. Thanks to the solutions provided by Coriant, Fastweb is now able to boost the high-capacity connection of the two paths of its infrastructure up to 300 Gbps. This technology upgrade represents for Fastweb a milestone in the evolution of its network because of the extraordinary performances and the improving of optical efficiency achieved. Fastweb is able to offer ultra-high speed capacity to manage the increasing growth of data traffic to all its customers, families, enterprises and other telecommunication operators.
The long-haul backbone network of Fastweb was built in 2010 and already equipped with the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi Haul Transport Platform implementing 100 Gbps Coherent Technology regeneration-free connections in order to manage increasing data traffic. The further deployment with Coriant CloudWave Optics has helped Fastweb to upgrade its network to the latest generation of state-of-the art technology. Coriant CloudWave Optics boosts the capabilities of the installed network, enabling Fastweb to maximize its initial investments and meet the challenges that new cloud and hyperscale connectivity services pose.
Through a partnership with Additiv, the service provider delivers an OTT-like cloud-based offering that allows financial institutions to gain digital transformation without ripping and replacing mainframe legacy systems.
Chinese telcos won't buy enough NG-PON2 to drive down volume costs. But does that matter, considering the role the next-gen optical technology's going to play in 5G and service provider infrastructure?
We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:
Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
