The City of Champaign multiple facility computer network is now completely connected via UC2B fiber! This means reliable and rapid exchange of data between all City facilities is now enabled. In some cases the speed of data transfer is now more than 1000 times faster than pre-fiber speeds.
With the UC2B fiber being buried underground, the City’s network connectivity and Internet access will no longer be subject to disruption due to inclement weather. Our previous connectivity between facilities and to the Internet was over radio frequency and laser light equipment, both of which transfer data through the air and suffer interruptions from rain, snow, fog, drizzle, and moderate winds (which means about 1 day out of every 3 in Central Illinois).
UC2B fiber and Internet access also means real cost savings to the City. The City will now save $30,240 annually by dropping all of our T1 data lines, and $31,200 annually by using UC2B as our Internet provider. While a significant portion of this savings is offset by annual maintenance fees for the fiber rings the City uses, we still save over $13,000 net annually and have a much faster, much more reliable system that will allow our digital data transfers and Internet use to expand for years to come!
Last week at OFC/NFOEC, Huawei displayed a prototype system designed to transmit 40 Tbps on a single fiber. The total capacity comes via 20 superchannels within the C-Band, each supporting 2 Tbps.
The prototype system involves a variety of coherent transmission and encoding technologies. In particular, Huawei points to the use of electrical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (eOFDM) and frequency-domain hybrid QAM as pathways towards spectrum efficiency of 10 bps/Hz. The system in Huawei’s both leveraged the company’s Flex-Optical Digital Signal Processing (Flex ODSP) and Hybrid Soft-/Hard-Decision Multi-level Coding (HMLC) to support reaches greater than 1000 km over common singlemode fiber links equipped with EDFAs.
At the same time, Huawei also demonstrated its ability to switch among and/or combine multiple modulation types, including quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK), 16QAM, 32QAM, and 64QAM.
The new 40-Tbps prototype comes on the heels of a 2-Tbps system Huawei field trialed last year with Vodafone.
Sprint Nextel is reportedly working with Mississippi-based regional operator C Spire Wireless to enable Long Term Evolution (LTE) roaming across multiple spectrum bands.
Speaking to Fierce Wireless at the Competitive Carriers Association conference in New Orleans, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said that his company wants to become the preferred roaming partner for smaller operators across the US, and is working with the likes of C Spire and telecoms manufacturer Qualcomm to make that happen.
Hesse clarified that Sprint is working on a solution that will allow LTE roaming across the 700MHz, 850MHz and 1900MHz frequency bands. To that end, Sprint and C Spire have already completed inter-carrier roaming tests.
In other news, Sprint has announced that it has extended its LTE network to 21 more markets, including Los Angeles, California; Memphis, Tennessee; and West Palm Beach, Florida.
