Huawei, in partnership with belgian company Proximus, have achieved speeds of up to one terabits per second over super-channel optical cable, the equivalent of sending 33 HD movies in just a second.
Proximus/Huawei’s transmission speed was conducted over a 1,040km fiber link using an advanced “Flexgrid” infrastructure with Huawei’s Optical Switch Node OSN 9800 platform.
The companies claim their approach increases the capacity on a fiber cable by compressing the gaps between transmission channels. “The technique increases the density of the transmission channels on fiber, making it around 150 per cent more efficient than today’s typical 100Gbps core network links,” they said.
