In cooperation with Nokia, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has successfully completed the nation’s first trial of 1-Terabit transit capacity per wavelength.
The PTCL Metro Transport Network was upgraded to 1-Terabit per channel. Extending its capacity to extremely fast speeds of 32-Terabit per fiber, for the testing on the live fiber network.
The study was based on Nokia’s Photonic Service Engine Transport Technology. Its creation took place to increase network capacity and deliver faster, greater bandwidth while improving user experience.
This pilot transformation will enable the transport network for emerging technologies. While opening up new business options for both individuals and companies.
This is yet another step in PTCL’s strategy to get its network infrastructure ready to handle the increasing data traffic demands of high-speed services and bandwidth-intensive applications. Such as Ultra HD Video Streaming, Industrial Automation, Smart Cities, and e-learning platforms for its subscribers and enterprise clients.
From the perspective of a consumer, 1 Terabit per second of bandwidth is sufficient. It will handle 300,000 HD video zoom calls and downloads the HD season of Game of Thrones in 2 seconds.
Chief Technology Officer at PTCL Group, Jafar Khalid, stated. “We are digitizing our client experience by offering cutting-edge technologies with commitment. Due to the increasing demand for data traffic from both our corporate and consumer groups. We tested the scalability and evolution of our optical transport network by increasing the capacity to 1 Tb per channel.
Nokia’s cutting-edge technology and industry knowledge he continued, “have helped us test bandwidths up to 1-Terabit. Which will assist provide a superior customer experience and enable the seamless future extension of our transport network capacity throughout Pakistan.
“This new experiment with PTCL is just another testimony to further strengthening our long-term partnership.” Stated Imran Durrani, Customer Team Head for PTCL Group at Nokia. As data consumption continues to grow quickly, PTCL is able to boost network capacity cost-effectively thanks to our leading optical solutions, such as Photonic Service Switch and Photonic Service Engine.
“PTCL can modernize and upgrade its optical network thanks to our ground-breaking Flexgrid architecture to give people and businesses a quick and dependable network connectivity,” he continued.
PTCL aims to provide its clients with better service quality and faster speeds. And the ability to create a network design that is more straightforward and boosts operational effectiveness.
