Televõrgu deploys ADVA 100G Core across Europe

ADVA Optical Networking (FSE: ADV) says Televõrgu AS has deployed ADVA 100G Core coherent transmission technology to connect Northern and Eastern European countries to Central Europe over a route running through the Baltic States and Poland.

ADVA Optical Networking (FSE: ADV) says Televõrgu AS has deployed ADVA 100G Core coherent transmission technology to connect Northern and Eastern European countries to Central Europe over a route running through the Baltic States and Poland.

Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000 platform, the ADVA 100G Core uses coherent detection technology and Raman amplification to transport up to 9.6 Tbps of data across 3,000 km of fiber without regeneration and without any dispersion compensation.

Together with flexgrid reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) technology, this system is ready to carry future service speeds, such as 400G, across the whole fiber route that stretches from Frankfurt, Germany to Tallinn, Estonia, according to ADVA.

“The ADVA 100G Core enables us to achieve outstanding performance thanks to smart amplifier design, less modules and optimized node placement across the route. With its moderate power consumption and fully automated GMPLS-based control plane, we are confident about the platform’s capabilities in bringing excellent value to Televõrgu and our customers,” said Kaida Kaeval, head of network, Televõrgu.

Developing Televõrgu’s trans-European network was no small task, ADVA asserts, given the exacting technology requirements, the challenging time frame, and the demanding logistical specifications. ADVA began by developing a test network in its Meiningen campus. Staging the network in this dedicated environment enabled Televõrgu to test and evaluate every aspect of the deployment, including its physical performance and the software management. Once the testing was complete, the network was rapidly deployed and ADVA’s optical transport technology is now carrying live data across multiple countries.

"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."
