Thursday Bytes: Nokia, TTI, Stream, Wyyerd

June 27th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

A long distance record, a giant new data center campus in Texas, and some FTTH in the desert southwest:

Nokia and Türk Telekom International have teamed up for a long distance optical demonstration.  Using Nokia’s PSE-6 technology, the trial achieved a single wavelength transmission of 800Gbps over 2300km, 700Gbps over 2500km, and 600Gbps over 4100km, each with no regeneration. The feat took place on a ‘highly loaded commercial network’, which was probably on TTI’s footprint between Germany and Turkey, which is about 2300km in distance.  

Stream Data Centers has broken ground on its giant new campus in San Antonio, Texas.  Located on West Military Drive and Loop 1604, the campus will eventually support up to 5 buildings with 1.5M square feet of space and some 200MW of power.  The first phase will be 300K of that, and should be ready in the second quarter of next year.  It will have an on-site 334MW CPS ‘breaker and a half’ substation.

And Wyyerd has broken ground on on the expansion of its fiber footprint into Glendale, Arizona.  The FTTH provider has been expanding into markets around the Phoenix metro area, but had not yet tapped into Glendale’s quarter million people.  That should keep them busy for a while at least.  The company had announced plans for the expansion just before Memorial Day.
