Nokia said 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) will upgrade Vocus’ optical network between Adelaide,  Brisbane and Darwin to deliver 200G with the capability to provide 300G and 400G in the near future. With this initiative, the Vocus capacity upgrade covers more than 7,100 km of fibre.

The deployment between Adelaide to Darwin and Brisbane to Darwin replaces the existing optical transport network to provide 100G and 10G services to Vocus Enterprise, Government and Wholesale customers.

The deployment of 2 x 200G based wavelength unregenerated optical transport networks covers 70 sites, over a distance of 3,000 and 4,100 km respectively, and will help Vocus to optimize Capex and reduce Opex.

“The modernization of our optical network on key routes reiterates our confidence in Nokia’s solutions and expertise. Nokia’s industry-leading optical solution helps us differentiate our services based on the quality of experience,” says Michael Ackland, General Manager of Federal Government and Strategic Projects at Vocus.
