Telstra, Ericsson and Ciena Enhance Telstra’s Next Generation Optical Network

Date:

Tech Reports

Telstra’s Next Generation Optical Network will increase the service capacity of Telstra’s optical network to 400 GE (Gigabit per Second Ethernet).

Telstra’s optical network provides connectivity between Telstra’s IP routers, and switches with the new deployment initially used to provide internet traffic and broadband connectivity.

The 400 GE interface has the same physical footprint of its 100 GE counterparts allows for a long-term upgrade path that does not compromise on physical limitations. 

The interface provides four times as much service while still reducing the power consumption of the optical network.

With the Transmission over Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical Platform using the latest optical modem technology WaveLogic5 Extreme (WL5E), this upgrade from a 100 GE interface to a 400 GE will improve the optical network performance and reduce power inefficiencies.

Iskra Nikolova, Telstra Executive for Network and Infrastructure, says: “We’re seeing traffic demands for mobile and fixed growing at over 40 percent and around 25 percent per annum respectively, driven by more people working from home and higher bandwidth requirements.” 

“This is due to the rising demands of video streaming and online gaming, as well as increased requirements for cloud and data center connectivity.” 

“Increasing the ability to interface into Telstra’s Next Generation Optical Network will allow us to scale more efficiently and provide an enhanced experience for our mobile, fixed broadband, enterprise and wholesale customers.” says Nikolva

Matthew Vesperman, Regional Managing Director for Ciena Australia and New Zealand says: “Innovative network providers like Telstra are constructing adaptive networks that can not only scale but also dynamically respond to unpredictable traffic requirements.

“Ciena’s 6500 platform powered by WaveLogic optics combines the required capabilities and software intelligence, providing optical network efficiencies while optimizing its footprint, power, and capacity.” says Vesperman

“Emilio Romeo, Head of Ericsson Australia and New Zealand says: “This milestone achievement will ensure that Telstra’s Next Generation Optical Network has the capabilities to meet existing and future demands from its customers.”

“Ericsson, we are proud to work with Telstra and Ciena in providing network services that will benefit all Australians.” says Remeo

400 GE optical transceivers are one of the hottest networking trends for 2022. with the optical transceiver market reaching $22.6 billion by 2023.
