Wednesday 5 October 2016 | 15:07 CET | News
Aqua Comms successfully completed a trial of Ciena's WaveLogic 3 Extreme transmission technology on America-Europe Connect, its high-capacity, transatlantic subsea cable network that connects New York to London via Dublin. This test confirms that Ciena's 150 Gbps per wavelength 8QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) technology will increase the capacity of Aqua Comm's submarine network by 50 percent, while providing greater spectral efficiency and reach over vast transoceanic distances.
