ADVA Optical Networking and HEP Group pioneer 100G high-speed optical transmission network in Croatia

22 Jan 2013 Martinsried - ADVA Optical Networking and the Croatian government's national electricity company, Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP Group), have installed the country's first deployment of 100G technology. The two companies - in collaboration with their regional partner ITeRATIO - conducted a successful 100G deployment over a distance of more than 400km between the Croatian cities of Zagreb and Split. This success highlights the government's commitment to developing the country's network infrastructure and will significantly boost HEP's network capacity and performance.

"This 100G introduction is the next step in the drive to modernize the country's communications infrastructure and significantly improve the performance and flexibility of our networks", stated Zelimir Pibercnik, director of IT and Telecommunications, HEP Group. "We invested over 3.3 million euro (HRK 25 million) upgrading our nation-wide network infrastructure to 10G in conjunction with ADVA Optical Networking. Now, with 100G we will continue to work together to address the growing demand for high-speed data transmission, encouraging investment in the region for years to come."

The HEP Group is the Croatian national electricity, heat and gas distribution company with over 2.3 million customers and has been responsible for the country's energy production, transmission and distribution for over a century. Its infrastructure includes 25 hydro-electric and 8 thermal power plants as well as an extensive transmission and distribution network with 24 thousand transformers spread over 140 thousand kilometers of lines. It is the first company in the country to pioneer 100G technology, giving it a crucial advantage in supporting development in the region.

"This is the first time that such technology has been deployed in Croatia and there is huge potential for growth here. We're excited to be working with HEP to drive new opportunities", commented Andreas Jelinek, director, sales Eastern Europe, ADVA Optical Networking. "100G dramatically cuts down on costs and reduces the operational complexity of networks. Adopting this technology means HEP will have the network capacity to develop future services and applications both for government and private enterprise, driving forward the country's development agenda and giving it a real competitive edge."

The successful deployment, using BERT, RFC 2544 and EXFO FTB-500 testing measurements, demonstrates how the ADVA FSP 3000 can be deployed to support speeds of 100G through a simple, quick and cost-effective upgrade to the existing optical network infrastructure. The solution allows for the increase of network capacity while driving down the cost per bit of transmitted data.
