NBN Co Doubles Capacity on Nationwide Transit Network with Deployment of Coriant CloudWave™ Optics

Coriant, a global supplier of open, disruptive, and hyperscale networking solutions, has announced that NBN Co, the company building and operating Australia´s national broadband network, has begun deployment of Coriant CloudWaveâ„¢ Optics technology across its 60,000 kilometer transcontinental optical transport backbone network, the company said.

The network upgrade enables NBN Co to double bandwidth capacity with state-of-the-art coherent optical technology that supports per-wavelength transmission rates of 200 Gbps.

Coriant CloudWaveâ„¢ Optics is an ultra-compact coherent interface solution that supports software programmable high-speed transmission to lower cost per bit as networks scale. The upgrade to CloudWaveâ„¢ Optics will allow NBN Co to increase maximum capacity on its transit network from 9.6 Tbps to 19.2 Tbps per fiber link while reducing capital and operating expense as a result of smaller footprint requirements, reduced power consumption, and greater throughput density.
