Cyber Internet Services Pvt Ltd. (Cybernet), one of Pakistan’s leading Internet Services Providers has announced that it has migrated its network infrastructure to 1 Terabit/s using Optical Transmission Network (OTN) based on 200G lambda configuration.
With this new network, the company is preparing itself to meet the upcoming increase in internet capacity on PEACE submarine cable and continually increasing broadband consumption on its consumer broadband service, StormFiber, as a result of the lockdown and the major reorientation in the way individuals work, study and communicate even beyond COVID-19.
This network transformation is also expected to reduce network outage times by triggering seamless rerouting on to redundant paths in case of unexpected fiber cuts on its rings. The technology enables ultra-low latency transmission and offers immense scale. The OTN platform also uses Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) to support up to 16 Tbit/s per fiber pair using current 200 Gbit/sec wavelengths.
In light of the recent circumstances attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital for local companies to identify, understand and effectively respond to changing trends in internet consumption. A robust and scalable fiber infrastructure enables service providers to meet increasing demands on Internet.
