ADVA, Corning Show 100G

LOS ANGELES -- ADVA Optical Networking and Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) this week will demonstrate a 100G solution for the metro environment. The joint demonstration, to be showcased at this year’s Optical Fiber Communication/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference in Los Angeles, profiles the lowest cost-per-bit 100G transmission available today over a distance of 125 km without inline amplification or passive dispersion compensation. This represents an increase in reach of about 85 km, operating with standard single-mode fiber. Built on the ADVA FSP 3000 and Corning® LEAF® fiber, the demonstration will highlight how service providers and enterprises can cost effectively deploy 100G technology while at the same time reduce capital expenses and simplify the development of high-data-rate networks.

“Today’s metro environment is one of the most demanding in the entire network,” said Stephan Rettenberger, vice president of Marketing for ADVA Optical Networking. “Service providers and enterprises are continually being challenged to transport more data while at the same time reduce costs. This demonstration is designed with the sole aim of underlining how this can be done and how you can use direct-detection 100G and non-zero dispersion shifted fiber to effectively transport more data at the lowest cost per bit. Working with Corning, we will be able to showcase something that can have a huge impact on the metro.”
