Nokia and Telecom Italia have set a new European speed record for data transfer
Nokia, together with Telecom Italia has set a new European speed record for data transmission over terrestrial optical equipment Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch. This will help to simplify the deployment of 5G networks, requiring a powerful support network. Normally the network of Telecom Italia has speeds up to 100 Gbps at ranges up to 1,800 km and up to 200 GB/s at a distance of not more than 800 km.
Exactly the same network without laying additional lines and optical connection — test-Nokia equipment at a distance of 1750 km managed to reach 300 Gbps. Between Rome and Milan, that is the destruction of more than 900 km (there and back), speed was 400 Gbit/s And in the network section of the Telecom Italia Rome-Florence with a total length of 350 km speed has reached record value — 550 Gbit/s. Record set thanks to the new digital signal processor, the Nokia PSE-3 (Photonic Service Engine).
