Windstream Wholesale sets 400G ZR+ record with Acacia pluggable module

Tuesday 23 February 2021 | 16:34 CET | News
Windstream Wholesale completed a live network trial that successfully deployed 400 Gbps single-wavelength transmission over 1,027 kilometers of its long-haul network between Phoenix and Los Angeles. The trial set a real-world benchmark of 400G using Acacia Communications' digital coherent optics technology. In addition to the real-world performance at 400G, Windstream said it set another industry record by looping back the signal to achieve 300G transmission over 2,054 kilometers using Acacia pluggables.
