PRAGUE -- GTS Central Europe (GTS), a leading infrastructure-based solution provider in Central and Eastern Europe, has extended its DWDM fiber optic network to Minsk in cooperation with Beltelecom. The 600 km route directly connects Warsaw and Minsk and represents the shortest route between Russia and Western Europe to offer low latency solutions to the region.

The newly built system, based on the latest non-compensated coherent technology, has a capacity of 80 channels, each of which utilizes 100G lambda resulting in an overall maximum capacity of 8Tbps. This system allows GTS to provide latency sensitive solutions not only in all CE countries, but also in the Belarus and Russian territories. This new route is the shortest path for data traffic between Russia and the western financial markets. Traffic connects into Warsaw from where it is transmitted westward to Frankfurt and London and south towards Prague, Budapest and Vienna.
