8 Jan 2010

Chinese vendor Huawei has announced that it has completed a field trial of 100Gbps transmissions over a distance of more than 1,000km in partnership with Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica. Under the trial Huawei constructed a high speed 100Gbps link between Valladolid and Zaragoza stretching for approximately 1,022km, without using electrical regeneration. The trial was based on Huawei’s OSN 6800 WDM/OTN transport platform with the transponder inserted in subracks, and the fibre type used was standard G.652. Commenting on the project Christian Chua, president of Huawei’s Transport Network Product Line, said: ‘The 100Gbps is the most advanced transport technology and is crucial to operators’ continuous development and the construction of green ultra broadband networks.’
