Having inked a deal with Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), South Korea’s largest mobile network operator by subscribers, SK Telecom (SKT), has begun introducing 100Gbps technology into its 40G network with a view to significantly increasing its transmission capacity. The Finnish vendor has announced that it has inked a deal with SKT under which it will provide its dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) 100G technology and related services. NSN has said that the capacity expansion will enable SKT to ‘simultaneously transmit up to 80 wavelengths of light, each carrying data at 100G on a single optical fibre, giving a total capacity of up to 8Tbps per fibre’. Alongside providing its hiT 7300 DWDM platform as part of the contract, NSN has said it will also provide its network management system ‘to ensure simplified network operations and comprehensive network performance monitoring’, network planning, optimisation and implementation, as well as hardware and software maintenance care services for the project.
