Televõrgu Deploys ADVA 100G Core over 3,000km

Televõrgu AS, which is part of the Tele2 Group, has deployed the ADVA Optical Networking's 100G Core to connect Northern and Eastern Europe.

The network uses the ADVA FSP 3000 with coherent detection technology and RAMAN amplification to transport up to 9.6 Tbps of data across 3,000km of fiber without regeneration and without any dispersion compensation. Together with flexgrid reconfigurable add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) technology, this system is ready to carry future bandwidth services, such as 400 Gbps, across the whole fiber route that stretches from Frankfurt, Germany to Tallinn, Estonia.

"Our new route has been extremely well received by customers, and almost 20% of the whole capacity is already in use" said Ove Ant, CEO, Televõrgu. "This network provides a lot of new opportunities in means of features, future deployments and services. This definitely sets us on a lead position on a transmission services market."

"Televõrgu is a company that is continually pushing the boundaries of what's possible," commented Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. "This is what excites our team. With Televõrgu's trans-European network, we were able to showcase what our ADVA 100G Core can do.
