ADVA Joins T-Systems’ Advanced Terabit Demonstrator Project

ADVA Optical Networking announced its participation in T-Systems’ advanced Terabit Demonstrator project, which focuses on the transportation of terabit applications between high-performance computing centers in Dresden and Stuttgart (a span of over 1000 km) using T-Labs’ SASER optical testbed.  T-Systems is using software-defined networking and virtualized network functions to show how programmability can be used in advanced networks.

ADVA is supplying key components of this project, including 100 Gbps coherent systems along with its latest 33GHz ultra-narrow channel spacing technology.

“The Terabit Demonstrator isn’t simply about showcasing the future of our networks. It’s about collaboration. It’s about harnessing our strengths to see what’s truly possible,” said Eduard Beier, head, Terabit Demonstrator, T-Systems. “That’s what’s so special about the team at ADVA Optical Networking and their technology. They’ve developed an open optical networking solution that is so different to others on the market. This is especially true when you consider its transparency. It interoperates with other vendors’ equipment in such a unique way. This is a key advantage in today’s heterogeneous network infrastructures and especially in our testbed. ADVA Optical Networking was able to interoperate with a broad range of other vendors’ technology without any need for special conversions.”
