Single-Card Terabit Super-Channel Demonstrated on GÉANT network

The GÉANT research network facilitates innovative new service for network operators.

DANTE, operator of the GÉANT network, and their partner Infinera, announces the successful demonstration of a single card terabit super-channel on an active segment of GÉANT’s production network between Budapest, Hungary and Bratislava, Slovak Republic.

The demonstration shows for the first time how a single photonic integrated circuit (PIC) can enable more than a terabit of super-channel coherent capacity from a single line card with a single fiber connector. This enables faster capacity deployment and lowers operational costs by dramatically reducing the fiber count when contrasted with alternate solutions.
