The freedom to add and drop traffic without deploying personnel greatly improves service agility and operations.
Bahnhof’s new 100Gbit/s coherent network features 48 nodes connected in a ring topology. Multi-degree ROADMs are deployed at 36 drop sites, creating remote cross-connections on the optical layer to boost availability and simplify operations. The freedom to add and drop traffic without deploying personnel greatly improves service agility and operations. The solution features 96 100Gbit/s channels and has a total capacity of 9.6Tbit/s. With muxponder cards, Bahnhof will be able to offer 10Gbit/s or 100Gbit/s connectivity to customers anywhere on the network. What’s more, the modular architecture of the ADVA FSP 3000 makes Bahnhof’s new infrastructure fully scalable for future growth and ready for the deployment of encryption at the optical network layer.
“Our team understands how important it is to get this right. We know what this upgrade means to Bahnhof and how much is at stake with a project of this scale. We’ve listened carefully and designed a network to deliver precisely what they need,” commented Peter Atterlöf, sales director, Nordics and Baltics, ADVA Optical Networking. “Reach and flexibility are essential for a long-haul transport system of this size. That’s why our FSP 3000 utilizes coherent detection technology optimized for long-haul backbone networks. It provides the ideal combination of capacity and flexibility to support the rapidly growing and changing demands of Bahnhof’s diverse customer base. And our ROADM technology ensures that network operations are more streamlined and efficient than ever before."
