ECI Telecom, Finisar, Multiphy and Technion Israel Institute of Technology Demonstrate 1Tb/S Transceiver Transmission with the Tera Santa Consortium

ECI Telecom, Finisar, MultiPhy and Technion Israel Institute of Technology have successfully demonstrated 1Tb/s transceiver transmission with the Tera Santa Consortium. In the trial, the consortium transported non-regenerated 1Tb/s coherent super channel signal through the German Research Network - Deutsches Forschungsnetz e.V. (DFN-Verein) optical network. ECI deployed its Apollo family of packet-optical transport solution across DFN's X-WiN's network in 2012, and has since upgraded it to support the delivery of 100G services, for faster connectivity and increased capacity. Highlites: The trial, which took place at the Technische Universität Dresden, ran over DFN's live X-WiN network, and used the 1Tb/s transceiver developed by the Tera Santa Consortium, as part of its research on 1Tb/s adaptive coherent channel behavior. It demonstrates the advanced capabilities of the Tera Santa 1T transmission system and technologies in compensating for channel impairments and chromatic dispersion utilizing advanced QAM16 and OFDM modulations and algorithms. DFN's X-WiN network features ECI's Apollo packet-optical transport solution, with flexible grid technology, which provides operators with additional flexibility when assigning spectrum compared to traditional WDM technology. DFN's network is based on colorless, directionless and contentionless ROADM WDM layers and ODU cross-connect at Layer 1 -- thus enabling a dynamic network with the ability to respond quickly to any new service demands. Finisar demonstrated the software-defined 1 Terabit optical transceiver, which hosted the different algorithms developed by the consortium, in an end-to-end transceiver platform utilizing Finisar Flexgrid(TM) - WSS used to add/drop the 200GHz super channel signal. The OFDM algorithms were developed by both MultiPhy (128 OFDM carriers) and the Technion (1024 OFDM carriers), using two different implementation approaches. This trial is one more milestone for the Consortium, which built upon the successful transmission of non-regenerated 100G traffic, via the Jonah international submarine cable, owned by Bezeq International. The data was transmitted by the Apollo OMLT over a total distance of 4,600 km from Tel Aviv to Bari, Italy and back.

MultiPhy, Ltd. Announces Metro Coherent Development

MultiPhy, Ltd. announced the development of the first 100G Coherent DSP Transceiver, specifically targeted at the Metro Coherent marketplace. With the growing demand for 4G services, high-speed data services, video streaming, and new high bandwidth applications, a need exists to grow the capacity of the transport DWDM networks in the Metro zones. While existing solutions are primarily targeted to serve Long Haul, the Metro Transport 100G marketplace has been underserved.

MultiPhy, Ltd. Announces Successful 100G Transport with Low Cost 10G EML's

MultiPhy, Ltd. announced the successful test and interoperation of the MP1100Q MLSE Receiver/DEMUX and MP1101Q MUX Chipset with the Sumitomo Electric ELD5401QK series EML device, a key component in the realization of a low cost 40km point to point 100G optical module. In addition to working with many tunable 10G TOSA devices for WDM applications, the successful test with very low cost EML devices, such as Sumitomo Electric's, enables the design of a low cost point to point solution for non-tunable applications, like those commonly found in the Metro networks on many CESR (Carrier Ethernet Switch Router) platforms. Utilizing MultiPhy's 'reduced bandwidth optics' technology, the MP1100Q MLSE Receiver/DEMUX and MP1101Q MUX Chipset overcomes the impairments seen when overdriving a lower speed optical component such as the Sumitomo ELD5401QK series EML. In point to point applications, the tunable nature normally associated with line side optics is not needed. A fixed laser solution, especially an EML solution, would significantly drop the cost of a 4X28G module assembly. The Sumitomo ELD5401QK series EML has shown strong performance in achieving the desired 40km reach associated with many line side point-to-point Metro applications.
