FUNET and ADVA score industry first in 800G long-haul demo

Date Announced: 04 Nov 2021

  • Record-breaking trial conducted over live R&E network with multi-degree ROADMS and RAMAN amplifiers
  • Using future-proof 150GHz grid, ADVA’s single-channel 800G solution offers market’s longest reach

HELSINKI – ADVA (FSE: ADV) has announced that CSC – IT Center for Science, which operates the Finnish University and Research Network (FUNET), has set an industry record by transporting 800Gbit/s farther than ever before over a live network.

Using the ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™, FUNET’s succeeded in transmitting data at 800Gbit/s on links exceeding 2,000km. The field trial shows how network operators can leverage new value in existing large-scale infrastructure and how FUNET can empower the Nordics’ academics and scientists to achieve even more.

Harnessing 140GBd sub-carrier technology, ADVA’s new CoreChannel sled leverages 150GHz channel spacing, enabling TeraFlex to deliver the market’s longest reach for a single-channel 800Gbit/s solution.

“ADVA’s FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ at 800Gbit/s speed delivered impressive reach during our tests and was stable throughout the month-long test period when we ran it on our nationwide ADVA open line system.

“The new 800Gbit/s channel technology will give us more flexibility to choose optimum modulation per use case to improve spectral efficiency. And, more importantly, it maps efficiently to 400GbE client services,” said Jani Myyry, senior network specialist, CSC/FUNET.”

With the addition of the new CoreChannel™ sled, ADVA’s FSP 3000 TeraFlex is the industry’s most efficient high-capacity open optical terminal for all applications from metro to submarine links. Now trials in the ultra-long-haul FUNET transport system have proven its compatibility with deployed infrastructure and shown that it offers excellent performance in a live flexgrid network built with multi-degree ROADMs and RAMAN amplifiers.

TeraFlex CoreChannel also delivers industry-leading SNR requirements, making it resilient to transmission impairments. Featuring multi-rate client support, the CoreChannel sled can also transport any mix of 400GbE, 100GbE and 10GbE services, protecting investment and providing complete flexibility.
