Poland's Vectra Builds Nationwide Optical Backbone with Cisco

Vectra S.A., one of the leading cable operators in Poland, has built a nationwide fiber backbone using ONS 15454 Multiservice Optical Transport Platform (MSTP).

Vectra’s new network is a nationwide ring, connecting nearly 30
cities around Poland, including Warsaw, Katowice, Wroclaw, Poznan, Radom, Bydgoszcz, Torun, Gdynia and more.  Initially, the network operates multiple wavelenghts at 10 Gbps.

Cisco said the optical network can be easily scaled to 100 Gbps when traffic requires it. The deployed Cisco solution can support 42 x 100 Gbps wavelengths in a single bay.  The 100 Gbps DWDM solution is based on the Cisco nLight coherent optical technology, providing the capability to transmit 100 Gbps wavelengths over fully uncompensated networks, up to 3,000 km optical spans.

Klonex, a Cisco Premier Certified Partner in Poland, designed and implemented the DWDM network for Vectra.
