Hallo allerseits,

40 Gbit/sec (= 659612 mal schneller als ISDN, 258 malschneller als Mediascape)vs. 155 Mbit/sec von Mediascape...

Vielleicht ein hinkender Vergleich, aber sehr imposant...

Bitte um Kommentare!!


KPNQwest & Alcatel Quadruple Internet Speed Record.

Record-breaking speed for data transfer at 40 Gbit/s per wavelength Four times faster than current top speed of any network in the world Establishes the first clear 10 Gbit/s IP link with Juniper Networks M160 Internet Backbone Router Four times faster than top router speed of any IP link in Europe

KPNQwest, the leading broadband Pan-European IP data communications company, announced today a double record-setting achievement in data transmission speed. The company has successfully completed the industry`s first multiple-channel 40 Gbit/s (40 billion bits per second TDM multiplexed) field trial carrying the first clear 10 Gbit/s IP service.

Using the new multi-terabit optical transport platform - the Optinexä1640 - from Alcatel, the world leader in optical networking, experts were able to combine multiple wavelengths, each at a record line speed of 40 Gbit/s and transmit them from Frankfurt to Gernsheim and back in a 160 km loop.

A line rate of 40 Gbit/s is four times faster than the current top speed of the fastest networks in the world. Moreover, the clear 10 Gbit/s IP link beats the fastest European IP networks by a factor of four.

When implemented in KPNQwest`s pan-European Internet backbone, this technology will enable businesses and customers in Europe access to extremely fast, reliable Internet connections. It will also enable customers to exploit such bandwidth-intensive and quality-sensitive applications as High Definition TV, streaming media and quality video communications.

The 40 Gbit/s wavelengths, sent over Standard Single Mode fibre (G.652), the fibre type most widely deployed around the world, carried more than half the total live, commercial traffic of KPNQwest Germany (formerly Xlink), the leading German business ISP. This demonstrates for the first time the practical implementation of ultra high-speed transmission at 40 Gbit/s, with multiple wavelengths, over an existing fibre base.

The 40 Gbit/s transmission links were used to establish a pure Internet Protocol (IP) 10 Gbit/s connection directly over the WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplex) optical layer, a so-called wavelength service, for the first time in an actual field trial. This has effectively quadrupled the speed of the most advanced currently available IP links. This was achieved through the deployment of the newly announced 10 Gbit/s routing platform - the M160™ Internet Backbone Router - from Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), a leading provider of next-generation IP infrastructure systems.

At a stroke, this field trial positions KPNQwest as the European leader in new, high-capacity optical transmission implementations. The effort is part of KPNQwest`s aggressive rollout of an all-optical, high-capacity IP network that will enable a host of new Internet and customer-managed bandwidth services, enhanced through its hosting, ASP and ISP assets across Europe, including the 18 mega-CyberCenters KPNQwest is building with IBM.

Commenting on the breakthrough, KPNQwest President and CEO Jack McMaster said: "This is a milestone for all customers for whom speed, reliability and security are critical to their business. A transmission speed of 40 Gbit/s per wavelength and the ability to relay packets through routers at 10 Gbit/s quadruples the existing speed possibilities and opens the door for a variety of e-commerce and m-commerce applications. KPNQwest is pleased to be the first carrier in the world to achieve this breakthrough for our European customers."

Christian Reinaudo, President of Alcatel Optics, said: "Through our new Optinexä technology, we are continuing to deliver the very latest in optical networking, providing customers with the capability to manage exponential growth in broadband traffic. This breakthrough technology radically exploits the virtually untapped potential capacity of our customers` fibre optic networks, creating the necessary bandwidth to handle the Internet`s explosive growth. Together with Alcatel`s ability to reach very long-haul transmission both in terrestrial and submarine, this innovation will help create a global, large capacity network."

Scott Kriens, CEO and President of Juniper Networks noted: "The new Juniper Networks equipment will help strengthen KPNQwest`s position as the leading provider of next-generation services such as dedicated Internet access, web hosting, video streaming and IP-based virtual private networks (VPNs). The Juniper Networks M160 router with OC-192c/STM-64 interfaces provides unprecedented capacity, quality of service and restoration capability and will support new services."

About Alcatel In November 1999, RHK, a leading telecommunications analyst firm, said that Alcatel holds a 21% share - the number one position - of the world`s total transport market, which comprises submarine and terrestrial transmission systems. RHK noted that Alcatel`s market-leading 37% market share in the submarine networks segment helped secure the top position in the total transport market. In addition, RHK found that Alcatel commands a 37% share of the digital cross-connect systems (DCS) segment. Cross-connect systems contain the enabling technology for operators to offer high bandwidth services. Alcatel is also cited as the global leader in terms of DWDM market share for the global market encompassing both terrestrial and submarine applications. Alcatel builds next generation networks, delivering integrated end-to-end voice and data networking solutions to established and new carriers, as well as enterprises and consumers worldwide. With 120,000 employees and sales of EURO 23 billion in 1999, Alcatel operates in more than 130 countries. For more information, visit Alcatel on the Internet: http://www.alcatel.com
