OFS Partners with T8 for Faster Fiber Network

By admin, May 21, 2012 5:19 pm

100 Gigabit Ethernet (or 100GbE) is a high-speed computer network standard created by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE?(News – Alert)). They support sending Ethernet frames at 100 gigabits per second over multiple 25 Gbit/s lanes.

The fastest published Ethernet standard was historically 10 Gigabit Ethernet. They were first proposed as IEEE 802.3ba in 2008, and ratified in June 2010. Another variant was added in March 2011.

Many radical developments have since taken place in this field. Recently, OFS, a designer, manufacturer and supplier of fiber-optic network products, partnered with T8 a Russian designer, manufacturer and supplier of DWDM transmission equipment, to announce a new record in error-free 100G, together with 40G multi-channel transmission over 2000 km of OFS?(News – Alert) optical fiber.

The commercial use of 8 Tb/s long-haul DWDM systems is now getting nearer, which will help the service providers handle the increasing demand for high bandwidth. T8″ LLC is the only company in Russia developing DWDM systems, the company stated in a press release.

“The new achievement is a good example of cooperation between our companies resulting in a key benchmark in DWDM system performance operating over the proven transmission media, AllWave Zero Water Peak fiber,” said Alexander Mikilev, Marketing Director of OFS Russia. “The all-synthetic silica construction, tight geometry and zero-water peak performance of the AllWave ZWP fiber lowers attenuation and splice loss across the full spectrum of wavelengths to help achieve the longer reach and higher data rates.”

TMC’s?(News – Alert) Anuradha Shukla recently reported that the company was providing virtually invisible, faster fiber routing inside homes and MDUs by announcing the launch of its EZ-Bend InvisiLight Optical Solution. OFS’ EZ-Bend InvisiLight Optical Solution has received positive response in field trials and it will be available in June of this year. The solution should help businesses such as Cablevision Argentina.

Israel Electric Plans to Offer FTTH as the Nation Remains at the Forefront of Technology Innovation

By admin, January 27, 2012 9:36 pm

The Holy Land is also likely to become the land of super-fast Internet connections, as it adopts a technology called “fiber to the home” (FTTH).

Israel Electric Corp, a state-owned electric company, plans to offer a cutting-edge, high-speed broadband network to the entire nation, which is about the size of New Jersey. Because the country is relatively small and has some dense population centers, Israel Electric is predicting Israel will jump to the “forefront of the next generation of Internet technology,” according to a report from The Associated Press.

Israel is looking ahead by opting for fiber-optic lines that will likely provide connections that are 10 to 100 times faster than more traditional methods, The AP said. “All the developing countries that have a vision for 10 years ahead, or 20 years ahead, understand that the name of the game will be communications, broadband communications, very fast communications,” Tzvi Harpak, Israel Electric’s senior vice president for logistics, said in a statement made to The AP and carried by TMCnet.

Israel expects that 10 percent of the nation will be wired for the new technology by 2013, and two-thirds of the nation will be wired within seven years, The AP said.

Oliver Johnson, CEO of Point Topic, said FTTH will be the “gold standard” of “the next generation of broadband service,” The AP reported. The improved technology will lead to applications in such areas as videoconferences, medical surgery, and in cloud computing. It will also lead to increased chance for economic success, The AP said.

“Everyone feels that bandwidth will be this commodity down the road. If you don’t have it, you’ll be out of luck,” David St. John, spokesman for the FTTH Council, told The AP.

South Korea now leads the world with FTTH technology, followed by Japan and Hong Kong. About 7.1 million homes in the United States, representing 6.6 percent of the total residences, use FTTH, The AP said. An example is FiOS (News – Alert) from Verizon. Israel now uses mostly DSL and cable for connections.

Among the companies interested in installing the new technology in Israel are: Telecom Italia (News – Alert) SpA and BT Group PLC, as well as Israel-based firms Elbit Systems, Rapac Communication & Infrastructure, and Tamares, The AP said.

“There’s been quite a lot of interest,” Philippe Guez, managing director at Rothschild, the financial adviser on the project, told The AP. “We believe and hope the government and the Israel Electric Corp. will make the appropriate changes in order to make this wonderful project happen.”

Given that Israel is considered a major technology center, the adaption of FTTH not just for major technology companies but for everyday folks is not a surprise. “Providing high-quality, fiber-to-the-home bandwidth for consumers all over Israel (especially in peripheral areas) is a national interest as it promotes economic growth, education, provision of government services, social welfare,” Eden Bar-Tal, director general of Israel’s Communications Ministry, told The AP.

Israel Electric traces its roots to 1923, when it was started as The Electric Company for Palestine. It has 2.4 million customers, according to data cited by Yahoo Business.

The carrier-neutral site will have 8,500 square feet of data center floor available, supporting up to 200 watts per square foot. It will leverage Zayo’s bandwidth infrastructure. Services are expected to be available by the end of the second quarter 2012.

zColo is the exclusive operator of the 60 Hudson Street Meet-Me-Room. The company was recently named one of the Denver-areas Fastest Growing Private Companies by the Denver Business Journal.

In a related news release, Zayo Group announced the completion of a fiber build into the Green House Data facility, Wyoming’s first multi-tenant data center, offering cloud hosting and colocation services. online casino . In addition to the build, Zayo will provide IP Transit service to Green House Data while enabling on-net connectivity to its 70 tenants from 24 states and three countries.

Fiber Optic Cable Shortage Makes Internet Projects Stagnate

By admin, December 20, 2011 2:32 pm

The United States isn’t exactly the most developed country as far as Internet speed is concerned. Recently, though, companies have been aggressively extending their capabilities, promising new high-speed Internet services for its customers. The demand on fiber-optic cables from these companies put a strain on suppliers and delayed some of the projects put forth by ISPs.

One such company, known as Consolidated Electric Cooperative, is right now working on a project involving 200 miles of fiber optic cabling from north Columbus, Ohio to Richland and Knox. The project has been held back by fiber optic shortages due to increased nationwide demand. The cabling necessary for the north side of the network isn’t going to arrive until January, and the company’s been waiting six months for the arrival.

One of the companies providing CEC with cabling said that federal stimulus funding increased the demand on fiber optics by approximately 30 percent this year compared to the demand in 2010. Since the stimulus, waiting 4-6 months for cabling to arrive has been something normal because of the gigantic demand coming lately. The trend is expected to go on through the year 2012.

The investment in cabling projects by broadband distributors totals around $4 billion nationwide. In Ohio alone, companies are putting their heads together to form a Consortium that intends to install 3,500 miles of fiber optic broadband cabling throughout 82 different counties in the state.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration says that most recipients of stimulus money didn’t have any supply issues, but the projects that ordered cable after the tsunami of stimulus money were hit hard with wait time.

One of the companies that formed the new Ohio consortium ordered its cable in February 2011. The part of the project it’s responsible for will place 900 miles of cable in northeast Ohio. This part will finish towards the end of 2012.
