Nokia, Telekom Serbia/MTEL transmit 600G over 600 km

The trial took place over 600 km on a fiber link between Banja Luka and Belgrade.

Nokia says it has collaborated with Telekom Serbia and MTEL on the verification of 600-Gbps transmission on their optical transport network. The trial took place over 600 km on a fiber link between Banja Luka and Belgrade.

The 600-km path consisted of six spans. The trial leveraged the Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) equipped with the technology provider’s PSE-Vs chipset. The transmission verified the ability to support low-latency, high-capacity traffic demands for 100GbE and 400GbE services.

The exercise comes as Telekom Serbia plans to deploy the 1830 PSS family equipment (PSS-16 and PSS-8x) in two new regional rings to meet the needs of its residential and business customers. “We are continuing to invest into the latest WDM technology to serve our customers with more demanding traffic growth, low-latency requirements, and agility for their traffic patterns,” commented Djordje Marovic, CTO, Telekom Serbia, and Milan Aleksijevic, CTO M-Tel Milan.
