Sorrento Networks International, a global provider of DWDM optical systems to maximise fibre network bandwidth, today announces that the independent, award-winning technology and managed communications services company, Azzurri Communications, will be offering the recently introduced 100G (Gigabits per second) GigaMux 3300 line-rate system.

Azzurri Communications, a premier reseller of Sorrento Networks’ next generation equipment, supports the UK service provider market with optical transport solutions. The company’s customers are now able to continue to upgrade their optical network infrastructures to meet the UK’s growing bandwidth demand.

The ultra-compact GigaMux 3300 system is the latest addition to the GigaMux portfolio of products and is unique in both its low cost of deployment and compact footprint compared to other available offerings.

Comments Rufus Grig, CTO of Azzurri Communications, “This new capability will be welcomed by our customers because of its ability to significantly improve the capacity of their existing fibre installations – enabling them to continue to meet the increasing demand of ever-more data capacity without incurring the considerable cost of installing more fibre.”

The innovative optics engine of the GigaMux 3300 100G solution lowers the cost threshold for smart coherent technology in the metro domain. Fibre spans of up to 1500km are supported, without regeneration, in addition to offering simplified network design with electronic dispersion compensation and operation over low quality fibre plant. Up to 80 100G channels can be supported per fibre using GigaMux 3000 and GigaMux 3200 photonic filters.

“The new normal is rapidly becoming the 100G speed for bandwidth services, and the GigaMux 3300 offers an easy and cost-effective path for Azzurri Communications’ customers to achieve this,” comments John Mitchell, director of product management at Sorrento Networks. “We are pleased to see Azzurri Communications make this breakthrough product available.”

The GigaMux 3300 adds to the existing portfolio of products – GigaMux 3000, 3100 and 3200 – extending the offer of right-sized solutions per application. The GigaMux 3300 allows current users of the Sorrento Networks GigaMux 3200 to multiplex existing 10G services to 100G, freeing wavelengths channels for future use. In addition, the coherent nature of the GigaMux 3300 100G line signal enables 100G traffic to ride seamlessly over spare channels in existing GigaMux 3200 fibre infrastructure without further plant re-engineering.

Sorrento Networks’ parent company, The Comtek Group, also supports Azzurri Communications with its extensive telecom equipment repair and refurbishment services.
