Columbus Networks shifts to 40G with NSN

Columbus Networks is upgrading its network with a 40Gbps solution from Nokia Siemens Networks. The upgrade will add capacity to Columbus Networks' Florida Transport Network, which serves as a main US backbone connecting international undersea cables ARCOS-1 and CFX. Columbus Networks already provides over 200Gbps of capacity and IP services and seeks to use the latest technology to meet its customer needs for the foreseeable future. Financial terms were not disclosed.


Nokia Siemens Networks will provide a turnkey solution whose cornerstone is the latest version of the hiT 7300 DWDM platform, which allows for regional to long-haul transport applications and supports ROADM (reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer) technology.


This will provide Columbus Networks with a highly scalable transport backbone that can securely and cost-efficiently manage the high data traffic volumes required by its carrier customers. Additionally, the ROADM support for multi-degree Photonic-Cross-Connects (PXC) supporting 80 channels enables Columbus Networks to best route this data traffic on the optical layer remotely so they can quickly and flexibly manage varying data traffic demands.
