ADVA Optical Networking and PSNC Trial 400G DCI Technology in Research and Education Network
ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ Delivers Error-Free 16QAM Transport Over 385KM
The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ is the team’s greatest technical achievement to date.
The 400Gbit/s trial was conducted using the live commercial PIONIER network. PIONIER is a consortium of Polish research and education organizations and its network is operated domestically by PSNC. For the purpose of the trial, the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ was configured with two 200Gbit/s wavelengths operating at 16QAM within an optical super-channel. The system also featured reconfigurable add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs) and hybrid amplifiers. After 14 hours of testing, the trial resulted in complete error-free transmission with impressive optical-signal-to-noise ratios of approximately 20dB. This trial clearly highlights the capabilities of the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ technology, especially for the bandwidth-intensive applications used in data center transport.
“This 400Gbit/s trial firmly underlines why we have such a long history with the team at ADVA Optical Networking. It clearly highlights why they power our network,” commented Artur Binczewski, director, Network Division, PSNC. “The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ is the team’s greatest technical achievement to date. This technology opens so many new possibilities for Poland’s research and education communities. We’ll be able to collaborate and share data on a whole new scale. We’ve never had an opportunity like this before. We are involved in many data-intense projects. Our work with CERN is, perhaps, the most well-known of these. With the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ we have many new horizons to explore.”
