Alcatel-Lucent has announced a solution to carry a single carrier 100 gigabit per second (100G) on a wavelength through the innovative use of emerging next-generation coherent technology. Designed to address the booming bandwidth demands driven by video streaming, Web applications, file sharing and high definition (HD) movies, next-generation coherent technology is the next step in 100G optical networking. This enables 100G rates on each wavelength, supporting for example the transfer of over 100,000 MP3 files in 60 seconds or over 15,000 HDTV channels concurrently streamed live.

Single carrier next-generation coherent technology offers higher integration and longer transmission reach with lower network complexity, operational costs and power consumption. Next-generation coherent technology also delivers compatibility between 100G and lower speed transport infrastructures (such as 10G and 40G).

Currently available on the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS), this technology, which leverages innovations from the Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent’s research arm and in-house developments in optical networking, is being deployed on all of Alcatel-Lucent’s dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) platforms.
