ZTE Carries 400G Wave for 5,000km

ZTE carried a 400 Gbps wavelength over a distance of more than 5,000 km.  The test used a WDM system with 100 Ghz channel spacing. Data was transmitted through 25 ROADM nodes without electrical repeaters.  ZTE used a unique frequency algorithm to overcome signal degradation.

  • In February 2011, ZTE transmitted a single-channel 11.2 Tbps optical signal. It also completed a 641-km transmission at 1 Tbps in standard single-mode fiber.
