ECI Telecom, Finisar, Multiphy and Technion Israel Institute of Technology Demonstrate 1Tb/S Transceiver Transmission with the Tera Santa Consortium
Apr 16 14
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.
