CityFibre FTTP Build Through Mud 1

CityFibre BEgins £3MN Full Fibre Broadband Build in Whittlesey

Network operator Cityfibre has announced that they’ve started to deploy their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based broadband ISP network across the Cambridgeshire (England) market town and civil parish of Whittlesey, which is expected to cost the operator around £3m to complete.

The overall project in Whittlesey, which is being delivered by civil engineering partner Granemore Group, is expected to reach completion sometime during 2023. But the first services will go live for people to take advantage of much sooner.

ADVA launches auto-tunable transceiver to help operators easily scale access networks to 25G

News summary:

  • Higher bandwidth services are urgently required in mobile fronthaul and cable access networks
  • ADVA AccesWave25 offers an easy way to boost existing 10G DWDM infrastructure without a major increase in cost or footprint
  • New C-band tunable SFP28 pluggable device reduces operational complexity and extends reach to 40km

MUNICH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ADVA (FSE: ADV) today launched its AccessWave25™, empowering network operators to easily migrate their 10Gbit/s access infrastructure to 25Gbit/s connectivity without a significant increase in footprint or major changes to the existing optical layer. The pluggable device answers the urgent need for higher bandwidth services in mobile X-Haul, cable access and wholesale networks. Operators can now slot the AccessWave25 into any standard-based SFP28 port for an instant capacity upgrade without replacing existing demarcation or aggregation devices. Using patent-pending distance optimization technology, the device also extends 25Gbit/s DWDM reach to 40km, and its G.metro auto-tuning technology reduces provisioning efforts and simplifies operations.

Eutelsat Ariane 5 Rocket with KONNECT VHTS Satellite

Euteslat Successfully Launch 500GBPS VHTS Broadband Satellite

European satellite operator Eutelsat, which is also the parent of UK ISP Konnect (We Konnect), are celebrating this morning after confirming the successful launch of their next gen ‘Very High Throughput Satellite’ (VHTS) into Geostationary Transfer Orbit by Arianespace using an Ariane 5 rocket from French Guiana.

The new satellite, which was built by Thales Alenia Space, is a more traditional one that will sit in a high geostationary earth orbit and cover a wide area – across the UK and Europe. The VHTS is expected to weigh 6.3 tonnes, support 230 beams over Western Europe and have a massive Ka-band (radio spectrum) capacity of around 500Gbps (Gigabits per second).
