TE Subcom Demos 100G Coherent over trans-Atlantic Distance

TE Subcom demonstrated 100G coherent transmission over trans-Atlantic distances, achieving 10 Tbps total capacity on a single fiber. The test was completed using a prototype of the company’s new, first generation smarTEr C100 transceiver on a straight line coherent optimized test bed that simulates undersea systems, including amplifiers and fiber, transmitted 100x100Gb/s (10Tb/s) error-free capacity over 6,400km with significant system performance margin. The hardware tested included proprietary soft decision error correction algorithms.

“This significant customer demonstration builds on a 60-year track record of commitment to specialized, long-haul undersea transmission research and development and success in delivering capacity-record-setting undersea cable systems," said David Coughlan, CEO, TE SubCom. “Further, it is a notable step toward the delivery of the first generation of new, 100Gb/s subsea cable systems and marks the beginning of ultra-high, double-digit terabit per fiber pair deployments."
