Taiwan's Chunghwa Tests Mintera's 40 Gbps

Chunghwa Telecom (CHT), the incumbent carrier in Taiwan, is testing Mintera's 40 Gbps transport technology. Mintera said its MI-40000 systems would position the company to provide 10 Gbps and/or 40 Gbps wavelength services as an "overlay" solution to their existing 2.5 or 10 Gbps optical line infrastructure. The transport system can also perform as a stand-alone 40 Gbps network.

Chunghwa's Request for Proposal, issued last June, specified equipment to transmit 40 Gbps DWDM channels over 500 km of G.655 fiber.
