PTCL has adopted the Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch, and 1830 PSS 100G Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) with Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS). PTCL longhaul network with Nokia 100G 1830 platform is designed to meet current requirement offering using 100G waves and with Nokia flexgrid technology, the same infrastructure is ready to load wavelengths 100G beyond, Nokia said.

100G Set-Partition Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (SP QPSK) modulation is used to cover very long distance links offering OSNR tolerance with 30% improvement in latency due to less regenerations. The 500G DWDM line card aims to provide investment protection for PTCL with an upgrade to 500G of flexible transport bandwidth for delivery of 100G services.
