Italy's FASTWEB Deploys 100G DWDM with NSN

FASTWEB is deploying 100G channel optical transmission links between Milan and Rome. The network will be capable of carrying 40 wavelengths at 100G each.

The deployment uses Nokia Siemens Networks' hiT 7300 optical network platform and its network management system for planning and automation. The hiT 7300 platform will ensure cost savings by either adopting no dispersion compensation (DCM-free) techniques on new fiber or simply by utilizing the operator's installed DWDM network infrastructure.
