Coriant Participates in ECOC 2016 Technical Program

Presentation Highlights Include Results of Successful Multi-layer SDN and Programmable Flexi-rate Transmission Field Trials with Industry-leading Tier 1 Service Providers

MUNICH, Germany, 8 September 2016 – Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking solutions, today announced it will participate in the technical program of the 42nd European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC), the industry's largest optical communications exhibition in Europe. Working in close cooperation with leading Tier 1 European service providers, research partners, and other industry vendors, Coriant will present on key technology trends in metro and long haul optical transmission, as well as on the results of successful multi-layer, multi-vendor field trials implemented using advanced technologies including Software Defined Networking (SDN) and software-programmable flexi-rate modulation.

Coriant presentation highlights from the ECOC 2016 technical program include:

  • First Demonstration of SDN-controlled Multi-Layer Restoration and its Advantage over Optical Restoration (SC6: Tuesday, September 20; 9:45 a.m.) – In cooperation with Telefónica, this presentation highlights a successful demonstration of centrally orchestrated multi-layer, multi-vendor restoration over optical and IP equipment, including Coriant and other industry vendors.
  • Comparison of Single Carrier 200G 4QAM, 8QAM and 16QAM in a WDM Field Trial Demonstration over 612 km (SC5, Wednesday, September 21; 2:30 p.m.) – This presentation highlights results of a field trial successfully implemented over a Telecom Italia EDFA-only legacy link with 0.3 dB/km average fiber attenuation. The demonstration featured single carrier 200G WDM DP-4QAM, DP-8QAM and DP-16QAM successfully transmitted with system margin of 4.1dB, 4.3dB, and 2.6dB respectively.
  • Advanced Receiver Design enables PDM-16QAM DWDM Transmission over 2660 km of SSMF with Only EDFA (SC5, Thursday, September 22; 11:00 a.m.) – This poster session features results of experimental DWDM PDM-16QAM transmission at 200 Gb/s over 2660 km of SSMF, using EDFA-only amplification and advanced DSP techniques, including powerful digital pre-distortion, iterative carrier recovery, and decoding using 50% OH soft-decision FEC.
