Abstract:
In the framework of the BMBF / Celtic funded program 100GET, the OCTET (Open Environment for Advanced Carrier Ethernet Technologies) project provided a test environment for 100 Gbit/s solutions of different partners in the already installed fiber infrastructure of Deutsche Telekom in Germany. The project was well in time with the development of 100 Gbit/s client and transport network interface technologies, standardized at IEEE 802.3ba for 100GE Ethernet, and at ITU-T G.709 for 100G OTN, respectively. Additionally, long haul 100 Gbit/s DWDM transmission technologies have been specified in a multi source agreement of the Optical Internet Forum. However, the goal of the project was to investigate 100 Gbit/s solutions which can be deployed in DWDM channels of field installed packet/optical transport networks, supporting the development of cost efficient and scalable Terabit/s transmissions. Since the project finished in December 2010, in this paper we summarize the work and present the main results and conclusions.
