Nokia announced that it has won Chogoku area's first 100Gbps network rollout for Energia Communications (EneCom), which is the leading utility telecommunications company in the area.
By deploying optical transport system integrated with 100G/200G coherent technology, Nokia said it will transform EneCom's transport network to provide highly flexible and reliable services. The network will be deployed in the Chugoku area on Japan's main island, Honshu, covering the main cities of Okayama and Hiroshima.
Nokia will deploy its 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) to provide integrated ultra-wideband wavelength routing and switching to optimize EneCom's networks for unpredictable traffic demands. The solution is powered by the world's most advanced super coherent digital signal processor, the Photonic Service Engine 2 (PSE-2), along with Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) and CDC-F Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM).
EneCom will leverage the new network to meet ever-increasing traffic demands as well as offer protection during natural disasters. The network features real-time optical fiber supervision, which is able to monitor and locate fiber breakage. This greatly improves the efficiency of network operation and maintenance, and the reliability of the network.
Ealier this year, EneCom and Nokia announced their plan to launch the first commercial deployment of G.fast technology in Japan, leveraging EneCom's existing copper networks to quickly deliver up to 1Gbps ultra-broadband access to residential subscribers.
