The trial, conducted on Hawe Telekom’s Warsaw-Poznan-Frankfurt route, validates Hawe Telekom’s readiness to provide high-bandwidth wholesale services to operators in Poland and interconnections to neighboring countries.
In the trial, Infinera’s ICE6 technology delivered high-performance 600G, 700G, and 800G transmissions on Hawe Telekom’s national and international routes over the existing optical line system.
