Evolving Networks to 1.6 Tb/s Transmission and Ubiquitous 800G Networking
29th March 2023
Make faster progress towards achieving cost reduction AND environmental targets through deployment of hardware that allows for double the capacity within the same footprint and 50 percent reduction in power per bit. Part of Ciena’s sixth-generation coherent transceivers, WaveLogic 6 Extreme (WL6e) integrates state-of-the-art 3nm CMOS, new DSP innovations, and high-bandwidth 200 GBaud electro-optics to deliver 1.6Tb/s single-carrier wavelengths for metro ROADM applications and 800Gb/s across virtually all long haul and uncompensated submarine links. Furthermore, new DSP enhancements push optical performance closer to the Shannon limit, with a 15% increase in spectral efficiency for typical links, and even greater improvement in nonlinear environments.
