Aqua Comms Tests Ciena Technology on AEConnect Subsea Cable

Aqua Comms has completed a trial of Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 Extreme transmission technology on America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) transatlantic subsea cable linking New York to London via Dublin. 

This test confirms that Ciena’s 150 Gb/s per wavelength 8QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) technology will increase the capacity of Aqua Comm’s submarine network by 50 per cent, the company said.

“The successful trial and deployment of Ciena’s 150 Gb/s per wavelength 8QAM technology on AEConnect underscores our commitment to serving our customers’ needs, now and into the future,” said Greg Varisco, chief executive officer, Aqua Comms.

“This trial demonstrates Aqua Comms’ ability to quickly and easily adjust its long-haul network capacity to meet the present and future needs of its international data centre interconnect and web-scale customers. An innovative and programmable network, supported by WaveLogic coherent optics and Flexible Grid technology, ensures these customers will benefit from maximum scale, reach and flexibility on this critical transatlantic route,” added Ian Clarke, senior director, Submarine Systems, Ciena.
