TDC NET’s 800G network jump focuses on sustainability

June 20, 2024
The Danish provider taps Ciena to upgrade its optical network.

TDC NET is moving to 800G networking, leveraging Ciena’s packet optical solutions. 

These network upgrades will enable the Danish provider to sustainably launch new, advanced services that support its net-zero emissions goal by reducing power consumption compared to its existing DWDM platform.

Leveraging Ciena’s 6500 family of Packet Optical platforms, powered by WaveLogic 5 Extreme programmable 800G technology and WaveLogic 5 Nano 100G-400G coherent pluggable transceivers, TDC NET will deploy a modern OTN network based.

Ciena’s platform will enable TDC NET scale its network to meet future needs with a technology roadmap that can support higher capacity requirements over the long-term.

TDC NET will use a range of Ciena products and services to upgrade its network:

6500 Family of Platforms and O-NIDs support sustainable OTN network evolution from the edge to the core.

WaveLogic 5 Extreme supports up to 800 Gbps speeds and 400GE client connectivity across any distance.

WaveLogic 5 Nano coherent pluggables offer power- and space-efficient connectivity up to 400 Gbps.

Coherent ELS edge-optimized open line system (OLS) for delivery of 100G to 800G coherent DWDM.

Navigator Network Control Suite provides end-to-end visibility and assurance from a single point of control.

“By upgrading our network with Ciena we can offer our customers a full suite of modern digital services both nationally and internationally,” said Robert Dogonowski, Chief Commercial Officer of TDC NET. “We wanted a vendor that could support our network transformation without disrupting service and allow us to remain in control of the customer experience.”
