Turkcell announced that it has completed the World’s leading 800G WDM trial with Huawei in Turkey Istanbul on a live Mobile Carrier network.
In order to be ready for 5G, the construction of fiber infrastructures and the evolution of equipment and technology must make strides to cope with the challenges of digital floods.
Turkcell has cooperated with Huawei to innovate ultra-high-speed transmission technologies and as a result, successfully implemented 800G high-speed transmission between two data centers in Istanbul.
This trial leverages Huawei’s latest ultra-high-speed service processing boards which supports the programmable and flexible adjustment of multiple modulation formats ranging from 200G to 800G.
By using the industry’s unique second-generational channel-matched shaping (CMS) technology, the latest Faster than Nyquist (FTN) algorithm system and AI neuron function module, the system can monitor complex link environments on live networks in real time to quickly and automatically learn and optimize network transmission performance.
This ensures optimal spectral efficiency and transmission performance while achieving the single-fiber capacity of 48 Tbit/s. The trial also confirmed the 400G ultra-long-haul transmission capacity of the live network, which can implement 1040 km of unregenerated transmission from Istanbul to Ankara.
“We are happy to work with Turkcell and complete the 800G WDM trial on the live network, which cements Huawei’s leadership in the ultra-high-speed optical transmission field. said Simon Lu, President of Huawei’s Transmission Network Domain.
“Huawei will continue to maintain its strategic investment and innovation in high-speed optical transmission and provide high-quality, reliable, and evolvable solutions for customers around the globe,” he added.
Turkcell is Turkey’s integrated telecom operator, providing high-quality fixed and mobile communication services for more than 35.7 million subscribers in Turkey.
This test improves Turkcell’s competitive edge in high-speed transmission and while also taking the evolution of the new technology in the 5G era.
Turkcell’s network traffic has been increasing by 35% year on year, and with the emergence of 5G, cloud computing, and Big Data, service traffic will triple in the next five years.
