FiberLight selects Fujitsu 1FINITY platform to enhance fiber network

Fujitsu Network Communications announced FiberLight, a regional fiber infrastructure provider, has again selected the modular Fujitsu 1FINITY platform to enhance their fiber network.
Upgrades include deployment of 1FINITY T700 transport blades and L130/ L140 ROADM blades to empower improved performance, efficiency and speeds up to 400G, Fujitsu said in a news statement.

FiberLight designs, builds and deploys mission-critical networks, operating 17,000 miles of fiber networks in more than 30 U.S. metropolitan areas.

Fujitsu enables FiberLight to deliver 400 GbE services over their existing fiber network serving both major and rural markets throughout Texas. This network upgrade enables high-capacity backhaul connectivity and seamless bandwidth on demand to better serve Tier 1 telecoms, enterprise and cloud provider customers.

FiberLight is the first network operator in the U.S. to deploy the T700 transport blade in combination with the L130/ L140 Colorless-Directionless-Contentionless (CDC) ROADM solution.

“We continue to invest in one-of-a-kind fiber networks that ignite digital transformation and meet our customers’ growing network demands,” said Jay Anderson, CTO-chief engineer, FiberLight. “Since 2019, FiberLight has relied on the Fujitsu 1FINITY platform to support the speed, performance, and agility of our next-generation transport network.”

“Fujitsu created an upgrade solution that meets the speed and scalability needs of their customers as efficiently as possible,” said Annie Bogue, head of sales and marketing at Fujitsu Network Communications.
