ESPOO, Finland — Communications and informational technology company Nokia Corp. and Ooredoo Algeria, the Algerian telecommunications subsidiary of the Ooredoo Telecommunications Group, have collaborated on a high-speed optical transport field trial that demonstrated 1.2-Tbps optical transmission.

"Commercial deployment of the technology in the near future will allow Ooredoo Algeria to offer high-capacity-based solutions to its subscribers,” Nokia said in a press release.

The demonstration leveraged the coherent transmission capabilities of Nokia's 1830 PSS Portfolio, including the 1830 PSS 500G Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Muxponder. The muxponder supports five 100-Gbps transmission per line card. The 1830 PSS platforms transmitted the 1.2 Tbps between Algiers and Ain Defla, a distance of more than 200 km.

"Ooredoo continues to be a major player in the mobile industry representing the cutting edge of innovation, conducting a winning partnership with Nokia in order to achieve groundbreaking transmission in Algeria and in Africa," said Hendrik Kasteel, Ooredoo Algeria's CEO. "It is critical for Ooredoo to increase the capacity, reach and flexibility of optical transmissions to offer high-capacity solutions and a superior customer experience.… Nokia is our long-term partner and we are confident that their proven optical network technology will help us maintain our leadership position in offering the latest and best-in-class technology solutions to our customers.”
