etisalat by e& ends successful trial of high-capacity transmission network

Partnership with Huawei is a world-first initiative for UAE telco

etisalat by e& – the telecom arm of e& in the UAE – has completed the trial of a 400G@ Super C+L transport network conducted in association with Huawei.

Hailed as the world’s first trial for large-capacity transmission networks and coming off its back, the initiative is poised to support green development programmes while establishing a robust foundation for hyperscale cloud computing.

Super C+L technology involves a new era of high-speed data transmission, serving as the backbone of contemporary digital transformation.

Unique accomplishment

In a rapidly evolving landscape where the demand for scalable, resilient data transmission solutions is paramount, the Super C+L trial is a unique accomplishment for both etisalat by e& and Huawei.

The Super C+L solution tested by etisalat by e& in collaboration with Huawei demonstrated the ability to support up to 12THz of spectrum resources, compared to the traditional extended C-band solution’s support for only 4.8THz of spectrum resources.

The achievement by the two entities resulted in an exceptional 2.5 times increase in network efficiency, proving the ability to effectively support and sustain industries’ digital transformation in real-world scenarios.

The successful trial comes against the backdrop of expanding optical fibre spectrum resources fast emerging as a crucial strategy for achieving high-speed data transmission in next-generation optical networks.

Marwan Bin Shakar, Senior Vice President of Access Network Development at etisalat by e&, said: “The successful completion of the 400G@ Super C+L trial is a testament to our commitment to pioneering innovation, sustainability, and customer-centred solutions.

“Within an ever-evolving landscape where the demand for scalable and resilient data transmission solutions is paramount, the Super C+L trial shines as a noteworthy milestone.”
