Meeting the many needs of data centre interconnect

High capacity. Density. Power efficiency. Client-side optical interface choices. Coherent transmission. Direct detection. Open line system. Just some of the requirements vendors must offer to compete in the data centre interconnect market.

“A key lesson learned from all our interactions over the years is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution,” says Jörg-Peter Elbers, senior vice president of advanced technology, standards and IPR at ADVA Optical Networking. “What is important is that you have a portfolio to give customers what they need.”

OpenFlow extends its control to the optical layer

OpenFlow may be causing an industry stir as system vendors such as ADVA Optical Networking extend the protocol's reach to the optical layer, but analysts warn that it will take years before the technology benefits operators' revenues.


"We see OpenFlow as an additional solution to tackle the problem of network control"

100 Gigabit for the metro

ADVA Optical Networking has launched a 100 Gigabit transmission card designed for metro wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) applications.

The firm claims this is an industry first: a direct-detection-based 100 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) design using four, 28Gbps channels rather than current 10x10Gbps schemes.


"Data centre operators want to make best use of the fibre insfrastructure and get lower overall cost, footprint and power consumption"
