Telefónica Germany, Coriant disaggregate 100G, 150G, 200G trial

Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking and DCI solutions, has completed a network trial featuring disaggregated 100G, 150G, and 200G transmission over live fiber optic links in Telefónica Germany´s existing 10G DWDM dispersion compensated network, the company said.

Conducted earlier this year using the industry-leading Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform, the trial demonstrated the ability to cost-efficiently maximize deployed optical infrastructure using best-in-class disaggregated optical transmission and open networking capabilities.

The alien wavelength trial was implemented across three different live links in Telefónica´s existing 10G DWDM transmission network, spanning distances of 1,070km, 630km, and 290km and connecting major network sites including Düsseldorf and Frankfurt.

While interoperating with Telefónica´s existing 10G optical line system, the Coriant Groove solution successfully demonstrated disaggregated 100G transport across all three links, 150G across the 630km and 290km links, and 200G across the 290km link.

In mid-year 2017, Telefónica Germany and Coriant will conduct additional alien wavelength testing with the disaggregated Coriant Groove G30 muxponder solution across Telefónica´s 100G national backbone network.
