- Network operators increasingly need to transport highest data rates over thousands of kilometers
- ADVA TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ delivers 800G capacity with longest reach on the market
- Solution offers client flexibility and industry-leading performance over regional and long-haul links
ADVA (FSE: ADV) today launched its FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™, giving internet content providers (ICPs) and communication service providers (CSPs) the power to transmit 800Gbit/s over greater distances than ever before. Using 140GBd sub-carrier technology, the new CoreChannel™ sled offers the market’s longest reach for a single-channel 800Gbit/s solution, enabling ultra-high-capacity transport over existing and new network infrastructure of more than 1,600km. This provides an improvement in reach of over 50% compared with 95GBd technologies. As well as the longest reach, the sled offers the highest client port flexibility. TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ can support 400GbE, 100GbE and 10GbE or a mixture of client speeds. The solution is now being trialed by major carriers and R&E network operators.
“Network operators across the planet have been harnessing our FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ to unlock the full potential of their fiber assets. Our compact, plug-and-play terminal offers a simple and cost-efficient way to maximize the capacity of optical infrastructure. Today we’re making it even more powerful with the introduction of our CoreChannel™ sled. Customers can now transport data at 400Gbit/s and 800Gbit/s over longer distances than ever before with a solution that delivers the lowest possible cost per bit per kilometer,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA. “Our FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ technology offers an enormous boost to operators transmitting services across countries and continents. What’s more, long-haul transport with TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ is even more efficient and reliable thanks to its superior link signal-to-noise (SNR) requirements and higher network performance.”

The launch of ADVA’s CoreChannel™ sled positions the FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ as the industry’s most efficient high-capacity platform for all applications from metro to core to ultra-long-haul submarine links. Compatible with deployed infrastructure, the new solution can transmit 800Gbit/s over more than 1,600km. What’s more, TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ delivers industry-leading SNR requirements making it resilient to transmission impairments. Along with the bandwidth flexibility and fractional QAM capabilities of the TeraFlex™ terminal, this ensures 800Gbit/s transport with highest efficiency, highest performance and lowest cost. Featuring multi-rate client support, the CoreChannel™ sled can transport any mix of 400GbE, 100GbE and 10GbE services, providing customers with flexibility and protecting their investment as they migrate to higher speeds.
