RCS & RDS completes three-vendor 100GbE test

Romanian cable and pay TV operator RCS & RDS has completed tests of 100GbE technology, the first such test in the country.

RCS & RDS tested 100GbE with DWDM equipment for ECI Telecom and routers from Cisco and Juniper. RCS & RDS said this was the first test globally involving three separate vendors.

The operator tested 100GbE IP/MPLS equipment over a 700km distance between Bucharest and Oradea. Upgrading networks from 10GbE to 100GbE increases capacity by a factor of 10, allowing service providers to serve a much larger number of customers with high-bandwidth services simultaneously.
