"As we approach the Shannon Limit, our compact and open FSP 3000 TeraFlex provides an entirely new route to network capacity expansion. This demo reveals how operators can enhance optical paths and reduce cost per bit right now", stated Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA. "Transmission terminal design is all about utilizing fiber in the most efficient way, and that's why our FSP 3000 TeraFlex is the high-speed terminal of choice. By providing a 1200Gbit/s channel that consumes only 150GHz of spectrum, we're leading the industry with spectral efficiency and channel capacity. Compared with the promise of rival 800Gbit/s solutions that are still many months away, we're delivering 50% more capacity today - and with the added bonus of significantly better reach."
Presented at SC19, the live demo highlights how spectral efficiency is key to maximizing bandwidth in existing networks. It shows how super-channels in increments of 50GHz are ideal for maximizing client port flexibility while ensuring compatibility with legacy line systems. Using software-defined fractional QAM modulation and adaptive baud rate capabilities, the ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex can support 1200Gbit/s channels carrying three 400Gbit/s clients or 800Gbit/s channels carrying two 400Gbit/s clients. The reach and spectral efficiency of the dual-core coherent engine implementation is superior to future single-core 800Gbit/s concepts that have reduced client port flexibility and often leave spectrum unutilized.
"Terabit channels are fast becoming essential. Our network enables Europe's scientific community to share huge data sets and access the most advanced supercomputing applications. But empowering those researchers to stay at the forefront of discovery requires a new level of reach and spectral efficiency. With this demo, we're showing how mission-critical long-haul networks like ours, which are not fiber-rich, can meet unprecedented data demand", commented Artur Binczewski, director, Network Division, PSNC. "The ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex provides the flexibility and granularity needed to squeeze maximum value from our fiber plant. Now we can transmit twelve 100Gbit/s or three 400Gbit/s signals in a single Terabit channel that consumes just 150GHz of spectrum. That level of efficiency enables us to achieve more than we ever thought possible with our DCI network."
The demo will be on display at SC19 at booth 1955 until November 21.
