Telecom Italia (TIM) and Nokia have claimed a record wavelength speed of 550 Gbps, the highest ever in Europe for data transmission over a long-distance backbone network and triple the bandwidth of the Italian operator's current network. The high-speed trial covered the 350km length of TIM's operational network between Rome and Florence using the new Nokia Photonic Service Engine 3 (Nokia PSE-3). The partners also reached a transmission rate of 400 Gbps over 900 kilometres between Rome and Milan, and 300 Gbps over 1,750 kilometres.
