Friday 14 September 2018 | 09:09 CET | News
Italian operator Open Fiber has announced the completion of its ZION network, described as the longest EON (Elastic Optical Network)-type backbone in Italy. The 6,300 kilometre fibre-optic backbone uses photonic technology to connect to the access network Open Fiber is building in around 7,000 Italian localities. In a statement the operator said the backbone already offers speeds of 200Gbps, reaching a capacity of 10Tbps via 50 optical channels, and can scale up to 400Gbps. It's also the first network of its kind in Italy to make use of Huawei's Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers
