T8 Ltd., the leading Russian manufacturer of telecommunications equipment for wavelength division multiplexing for optical communication networks, has upgraded the backbone lines of one of the largest operators in Russia with a length of more than 2,400 km. High-speed lines were launched in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the Republic of Buryatia and the Irkutsk Region.
The installation of Volga DWDM equipment was a part of a large-scale project to upgrade backbone fiber-optic channels. As a result, the modernization affected 28 nodes of the telecom operator, and now the capacity in the busiest areas is 600 Gbit/s.
Volga platform is a Russian-designed and manufactured wavelength division multiplexing system that allows communication channels up to 400 Gbit/s over a single wavelength. The distinction of Volga is the possibility of building super-long flights between communication centers without regeneration and reinforcement.
The upgrade of the backbone optical equipment in Siberia will continue. In the near future, the Republic of Khakassia will receive a similar high-speed network with a capacity of up to 1 Tb/s in some sections, built on Russian equipment.
