Cape Town, South Africa. January 26, 2016.
ADVA Optical Networkingand the City of Cape Town announced today that they
have successfully transmitted data rates of up to 400Gbit/s across Cape
Town's metro transport network. The trial combined existing ADVA FSP 3000
infrastructure and the latestCloudConnect(TM) 400Gbit/s technologyto connect
the townships of Nyanga and Mitchells Plain. It was one of the first
demonstrations to transmit traffic at data rates of 200, 300 and 400Gbit/s
over a deployed metro network. Using existing WDM equipment to achieve such
high capacity underlines how theADVA FSP 3000scales to accommodate growing
bandwidth demand. The trial is also notable for being one of the first field
demonstrations of DP-8QAM to achieve interim capacity of 300Gbit/s. The
showcase underlines the City of Cape Town's commitment to delivering
high-speed connectivity throughout the metropolitan area and to underserved
townships. ADVA Optical Networking's Elite partner XON Systems was integral
in facilitating the trial.

"What we've showcased here with ADVA Optical Networking is a genuine
technology landmark. Now that we know we have the power to create a 400Gbit/s
backbone the possibilities are immense," said Leon van Wyk,
telecommunications manager, City of Cape Town. "Ultra-fast connectivity will
give government departments access to innovative new solutions. It will also
make a huge difference for businesses and residents in this area.
Successfully connecting the townships of Nyanga and Mitchells Plain with a
400Gbit/s transmission shows that we can bring high-speed broadband to areas
that need it most. We know the power the Internet has to expand horizons,
raise aspirations and enrich lives. Connecting people and local businesses
with each other and with the world will regenerate entire communities."

The 400Gbit/s trial made use of the City of Cape Town's existing WDM
infrastructure, which stretches over more than 100km and covers the whole
metropolitan area. The meshed network is built on the ADVA FSP 3000, a
modular optical networking platform designed for scalability and bandwidth
optimization. To achieve the phenomenally high channel capacity, the
demonstrators created a two-wavelength super-channel. Data rates were then
switched between 200, 300 and 400Gbit/s to show how capacity can be
automatically adjusted according to the network's shifting traffic and
transmission quality requirements. Successfully transmitting a 300Gbit/s
channel at just DP-8QAM is a significant milestone. This modulation format
can handle lower signal-to-noise ratios for increased reliability, yet
optimized fiber utilization.

"Using existing optical infrastructure to transmit up to 400Gbit/s highlights
the scalability of our FSP 3000 and shows our customers how much potential
lies in their deployed networks," commented Günter Landers, sales director
Africa, ADVA Optical Networking. "This trial demonstrates that backbone
networks can be made to work even more efficiently so that future bandwidth
demand can be met without the need for significant investment. The City of
Cape Town is one of the leading municipalities in the country when it comes
to providing its residents with state-of-the-art connectivity. It's been
great to work with them on a demo like this. We've proved that they already
possess the infrastructure to do so much more. Their not-for-profit network
will soon be able to give an even bigger boost to local businesses and
enhance the life chances of more people."
