Cutting edge illumination of a 356-mile route connecting Miami to Jacksonville with the LightPad i6400G
New Orleans, LA – July 16, 2015 – Padtec, a global manufacturer and solutions provider of turnkey optical solutions, announces today its partnership with Allied Fiber, the United States’ first open-access, integrated, network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure. The partnership allows Padtec to demonstrate its flagship DWDM platform, the LightPad i6400G, which supports metro, long-haul, and ultra long-haul architectures while enabling up to 13 Tbps across its coherent 100Gbps transponders.
The network designed by Padtec employs coherent 100Gbps transponders to light a dark fiber pair along the 356-mile route in Florida, between Jacksonville and Miami on Allied Fiber’s superstructure. In order to ensure a single digital line segment on this route, Padtec is deploying its latest generation amplifiers that ensure extended span lengths via their very low noise figure. The solution is characterized by its high capacity, reliability, and flexibility, allowing hassle free network growth.
“We look forward to offering our solution along Allied Fiber’s Florida segment,” states Enrique Lozoya, VP Engineering Sales of Padtec. “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to demonstrate our ability to provide cost efficient turnkey DWDM solutions that enable operators to meet and exceed network demands expeditiously. This trial will show how the Padtec solution works within the Allied Fiber network to enable connections between access networks through points of interconnections within the Allied Fiber system.”
"Padtec is a terrific addition to the Allied Fiber Technology Showcase," comments Doug Corbett, VP Sales for Allied Fiber. "Their technology coupled with our physical layer colocation and dark fiber facilities working in a joint ‘live-trial’ create the perfect environment for all network operators to experience first-hand what is possible, realize the benefits and then step in to take advantage of it for themselves."
Padtec has deployed over 100,000 km of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) backbone networks throughout Latin America and has equipment in more than 40 countries. Demonstrating its expertise in optical networking, Padtec’s configuration along the Allied Fiber route will showcase its LightPad i6400G Platform, which is an optical integrated transport system of high capacity and low latency that can be applied not only in long distance networks, but also in metropolitan storage networks (SANs).
