Verizon runs 800 Gbps of data across single wavelength of live fiber

Verizon, in conjunction with Ciena and Juniper Networks, have demonstrated the ability to move 800 Gbps of data on a single wavelength. The successful trial on Verizon’s live fiber network showed equipment interoperability from two different suppliers and the capability to quadruple the typical capacity carried on a wavelength. The test traffic was transmitted between two Juniper Networks QFX 5220 packet platforms across two Ciena 6500 platforms powered by WaveLogic 5 Extreme (WL5e) coherent optics.
