Vietnam's VTN Tests Coherent 100G with Ciena

Vietnam Telecoms National (VTN), Vietnam's largest service provider, has completed a 100 Gbps network trial using Ciena's coherent 100G technology.

The trial was conducted in February 2011, spanned 500 kilometers between the cities of Vinh and Danang, and follows the recent deployment of Ciena's coherent 40G solution across VTN's nationwide optical backbone. The trial was implemented by adding coherent 100G line cards in the ActivFlex 6500 Packet-Optical Platform while the platforms were in-service. No re-engineering of existing fiber routes or additional equipment required.
