New innovations to address access, metro aggregation, and long haul data center interconnect (DCI)
Nokia's strong presence at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) includes Nokia Bell Labs luminaries, customers, and partners featured in the technical conference and at Nokia's in-booth Shannon Theater
16 March 2017
Los Angeles, California, - Nokia today announced an expansion of its flagship optical product family to help operators build end-to-end cloud service delivery networks. The new solutions and capabilities allow operators to scale their networks across premises access, metro aggregation and long haul data center interconnect (DCI). The new products will be highlighted at the OFC Conference, March 21-23 in Los Angeles, alongside the Nokia Bell Labs Shannon Theatre, a venue for customers, partners, and researchers to showcase innovations that move optical networking forward.
As enterprises adopt cloud IT services at a rapid pace and digital media continues to dominate consumer entertainment, cloud and content providers are evolving their networks to ensure a better user experience. Increasingly, this involves distributing content and online services from continental mega data centers to metro and regional edge data centers and co-location facilities where the user experience is improved via lower latency and higher access bandwidth.
Nokia is helping network operators build these end-to-end, high-capacity cloud connectivity networks with an expansion of the 1830 family of products to include carrier Ethernet and wavelength services delivery with the 1830 Photonic Service Demarcation (PSD), as well as high performance DCI in the 1830 Photonic Service Interconnect (PSI). All new capabilities will be available in the first half of 2017.
Nokia's new optical innovations include:
The Nokia 1830 PSD is a carrier-class network demarcation device supporting Ethernet and wavelength services. It cost effectively extends metro optical networks to the customer premise, enabling resilient, high-capacity access to cloud services while providing end-to-end service assurance.
The Nokia 1830 PSI integrates the super coherent technology of the Photonic Service Engine 2 (PSE-2s) into a data center physical and operational form-factor, delivering the highest proven optical performance and flexibility available in a purpose-built DCI platform. Its unique modulation formats maximize spectral efficiency and distance for metro, long haul, and subsea networks.
New 100G line cards for the 1830 Photonic Service Switch address the high-capacity, low latency aggregation required to connect cloud service consumers to metro colors and edge data centers. Powered by the PSE-2 Compact (PSE-2c) metro-optimized 100G digital signal processor, the new 100G OTN and packet cards efficiently transport packet and OTN services in a compact, cost-effective form factor.
In addition to showcasing new solutions and innovations at OFC, Nokia will also feature luminaries from Nokia Bell Labs and the optical industry in an in-booth program running for the duration of the exhibition. The Nokia Bell Labs Shannon Theater will feature visionary topics along with case studies from customers and partners, all under the banner of "Moving Optical Networking Forward". Nokia and Bell Labs speakers will also be prominently featured in the OFC Expo and technical conference.
