Nokia has announced that Vocus has deployed Nokia’s solution to set up the 200G optical links covering more than 4,100 km between Brisbane and Darwin.

Nokia’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) is used to upgrade Vocus’ optical network between Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin to deliver 200G with the capability to easily provide 300G and 400G in the near future. With this initiative, the Vocus capacity upgrade covers more than 7,100 km of fiber. 

Rob McCabe, Head of Enterprise, Australia and New Zealand, Nokia, said: “This upgrade improves both the current and future capacity of the Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin links to ensure Vocus can address growing data consumption demands while also delivering ultra-high speed and reliable experiences for their customers.”

The upgraded, higher capacity optical network allows Vocus to provide the latest generation of quality optical services in connecting Darwin to Hypercloud Data centers, regional locations and international submarine cables. 

Nokia’s solution is based on a flexible spectrum hybrid architecture with Colorless, Directionless, Contentionless Flex-grid (CDC-F) architecture at the terminal sites at Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin and a simpler Colorless-Flexgrid (C-F) solution at regional drop sites providing a total warranted capacity of 10.8Tb (54x200G) between Adelaide-Darwin and Brisbane-Darwin.
