Alcatel-Lucent has announced that it will deliver a single-carrier 100 gigabit-per-second (100G)/200G DWDM optical line card giving service providers the ability to more than double the bandwidth capacity of their networks.

The card will plug in to Alcatel-Lucent’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) platform to offer service providers a flexible network evolution path and meet ever-growing demands for high-bandwidth services such as streaming HD video and cloud computing.

The company said that the 100G/200G single carrier line card has already been deployed into 20 service providers networks.

Basil Alwan, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s IP Routing and Transport business line, said: “We were the first to innovate with a single-carrier 100G solution and we are now the first to offer 200G. This is the most flexible solution on the market – it’s backward compatible allowing existing customers to easily deploy extra speed and capacity in their networks whenever and wherever they need it. This removes the inefficiency of having to predict future demand and purchase extra capacity, when upgrading networks, when it may not be needed or used for some time.”

Ron Kline, principal analyst, Intelligent Networks at Ovum commented: “200G provides a very compelling case for operators looking to lower total cost of ownership. The technology provides twice the bandwidth in the same footprint without increasing power requirements, a great option for operators.”
