Nokia’s Cable Technology Subsidiary, Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN) in a report released on Wednesday stated that the company has this time set 2 times the previous standards by setting a new record for cable transmission capacity. This has led to an obvious boom by Internet Firms in the demand for the same. Nokia has been said to be offering better Transmission speeds than other competitors.
According to the report by Nokia, its subsidiary that handles cable technology has been reportedly set a new record in its field. The subsidiary stated that they along with the help of Nokia’s research arm, Nokia Bell Labs, had demonstrated in lab tests to various suppliers as big as 65 terabit-per-second transmission using dual-band fiber amplifiers. This is two times the previous industry standards according to Nokia’s report.
The speed Alcatel Submarine Network (ASN), Nokia’s cable technology Subsidiary’s been talking about is equivalent to streaming around 10 million High-Definition TV channels simultaneously!
And the way technology is booming, we all know that various big firms like Google, Facebook, and even the Governments need greater communications capacity. According to a research firm named Telegeography, the referred market is speculated to be seeing a boom of new cable deployments worth more than $8.1 billion over the next coming three years.
Alan Mauldin, who is the Research Director at Telegeography stated, “The Internet players are driving demand across the Atlantic and Pacific, within Asia to some degree and between Latin America and the United States.”
While in 2015 there were only 3 subsea networks of around $490 million, Telegeography predicts that with the next 3 years we would be seeing 33 more of them.
According to Olivier Gautheron, ASN Chief Technology Officer, their new technique promises to help reduce transmission costs as well as increases network resilience and further allowing the networks to dynamically adapt to the changing traffic environments.
And this seems true too “technically” as the trial worked upon by ASN took advantage of a new “probabilistic” modulation technology from Bell Labs that allows its customers to maximize their capacity of high-speed optical networks or allows them to trade off their capacity by extending the distance needed between amplifiers which ultimately helps in boosting electronic signals resulting in reduced networking costs.
