Telefonica Spain has achieved speeds of 400 Gbps over DWDM during tests on 280 km of fibre linking Granada and Jaen, Cinco Dias reports. The operator said the experiment consisted in proving the viability of sending signals at high speeds over networks on which customers' traffic is currently being transported and to meet the demand for increasing bandwidth. The company, which used Ericsson MHL 3000 equipment in its tests, said it intends to start offering such speeds to clients in 2013 if there is market demand.
