Adoption of 100G Technology in Spread’s Chicago-New York Network

Spread Networks is a leader in the telecommunication industry. Murray White, the Executive Vice President for Market Development of Spread, is pleased with the company’s deployment of 100 G fiber network that links Chicago and New York.

The company adopts the 100 G technology from ADVA Optical Networking, a leader in offering infrastructure solutions to the telecommunication industry. Christoph Glingener, CTO of ADVA Optical Networking, reports that their 100 G Core technology is specifically designed for situations that necessitate fast and safe transfer of data even to long distances.

Spread has certified the credit of the 100 G technology of ADVA after successfully testing it in JDSU's TBERD 8000 test set. The new technology is imbibed in Spread’s fiber network connecting Chicago and New York and this proves to pass round-trips in under 13.33 milliseconds.

The new Spread network that works by ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 optical hardware is capable of supporting 80 wavelengths, allowing customers access to 100 gigabits per second of optical wavelength. The 100 G waves are exposed to soft decision forward error correction (SD FEC) and allow for the data transfer rate of 8 terabits per second (Tbps). Thus, the 100G technology features speed that is as fast as light through fiber and helps in the quick and safe transfer of data.

Mr. Murray White assures that with the adoption of the 100 G technology in the Chicago-to-New-York network, his company remains unsurpassed in latency, availability, and customer service compared to any other net work.
