Alien wavelength 100G field interoperability testing

We performed 100G field alien wavelength test over 1235km of DWDM-path. The purpose of the test was to verify support of 100G alien wavelengths in UNINETT’s (Norway’s NREN) optical network. In addition, UNINETT wanted to gain some experience with new 100G OTN/DWDM cards from Juniper and Cisco, and prove the interoperability between them. The following tests have been performed:
– 100G single-vendor alien wavelength (AW) test over Coriant hiT 7300 platform.
– 100G multi-vendor AW test over Coriant hiT 7300 platform.
