ADVA has launched its FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™, giving content and service providers the ability to transmit 800Gbps over greater distances than ever before. ADVA says that using 140GBd sub-carrier technology, the CoreChannel™ sled offers the market’s longest reach for a single-channel 800Gbps 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 fibre 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 400Gbps and 800Gbps over longer distances than ever before with a solution that delivers the lowest possible cost per bit per kilometre,” 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 our FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ changes the game for terrestrial long-haul and regional transport. It gives ICPs and CSPs the ability to inject new capacity into their deployed networks. Now they can drive line speeds of up to 800Gbps over distances 50% longer than can be achieved with 95GBd solutions. That advantage will be key to tackling ever-increasing data growth without adding significant cost and complexity,” commented Cornelius Fürst, director, product line management, ADVA. “With its unrivaled reach, multi-rate client flexibility and rich performance settings, TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ redefines the economics of backbone networks. It will play a key role in accelerating the delivery of high-bandwidth, feature-rich services over ultra-long-haul global infrastructure. And because it can be flexibly configured for lower data rates, it supports a smooth transition to high-speed connectivity.”
