Open Fiber backbone network hits record 600Gbps

Wednesday 18 December 2019 | 08:55 CET | News
Italian operator Open Fiber announced that its ZION fibre backbone network has reached a top speed of 600Gbps, up from 400Gbps last year. The speed is a record for a long-distance national backbone network built in Italy on an active infrastructure with the highest spectral efficiency ever reached, said the company in a statement, adding that the new performance has been improved thanks to the introduction by Huawei of a new optical digital signal processor (oDSP) that uses Artificial Intelligence algorithms to encode and modulate the optical signal.
