Vendor Bytes: Ribbon, Spirent, Nokia, Exium, Enea

February 15th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

A couple DWDM, some SASE data, and a bit of 5G testing:

Ribbon has won a key longhaul DWDM deployment in northwestern India. Bharti Airtel will be using their Apollo platform and Muse domain orchestration to upgrade its transport network in the region. The project covers 18,000 route miles of fiber across the region, and will enable up to 51.2Tbps across the C&L bands.

Spirent has introduced a full suite of O-RAN testing and validation solutions. O-RAN enables interoperation between different vendors in the context of a cellular networks. Given that every design is different and an operator needs to be sure, that’s something that requires testing that is both broad and deep. Mavenir is among the early converts to Spirent’s new O-RAN lineup.

Nokia has completed a 600G DWDM network deployment in southeast Asia. Viettel is leveraging Nokia’s PSE-v super-coherent optical engine on the 1830 PSS platform. The DCI solution enables Viettel to scale to 25.2Tbps in the C-band, with the capability to double that by adding L-band components.

Exium has tapped Enea for the network intelligence necessary for its SASE platform. Exium is combining 5G access and next generation security and cloud applications for the smaller end of the enterprise market. Enea’s part in that puzzle supplies encrypted traffic classification, deep packet inspection, and other traffic insights to make things happen.
