This morning the longhaul network operator TTK announced the commercial launch of its 100G ultra longhaul DWDM network. The new gear is already in place on the key Moscow-St. Petersburg and Moscow-Chelyabinsk-Ekaterinburg segments, stretching for some 3,000km with the latter being a 2,600km repeaterless segment. They’re deploying Cisco’s DWDM gear, and the upgrade will boost TTK’s total throughput by a factor of six.

Meanwhile in the country’s premier Moscow metro market, JSC Fortex has also taken the 100G plunge. Using ADVA’s 100G metro gear, they’ve put bigger pipes to play across their some 3,000km of fiber. ADVA’s solution is based on 4x28G direct detection rather than the coherent technology we see so much of in the longhaul. JSC Fortex will be deploying more of the gear over the remainder of the year.
