Iraq's Informatics and Telecommunications Public Company has selected IP routing technology from Finnish telecommunications equipment provider Nokia to serve as the main backbone for the country's Internet infrastructure.

A statement from Nokia said the Iraqi firm Al-Awsat would be the local partner in deploying the technology.

Nokia said its leading service router portfolio "delivers the network performance and service richness necessary for operators to provide the best possible internet services".

"Nokia will supply and install several of its IP routers, including 7750 SR-s, 7750 SR-e and 7250 IXR for the ITPC network to deliver high-performance, scale and flexibility required to support a full array of IP services and functions," the company, one of three globally that supplied end-to-end 5G solutions, said.

"Nokia's commissioning, network design, and integration professional services will help deploy the network, which serves millions of subscribers, smoothly and efficiently. Al-Awsat will support with installation, civil works and required power supply through generators for the deployment."

A statement from the Iraqi Telecommunications Ministry said: "Internet gateway is a fundamental pillar in ensuring a country's data security. Nokia and Al-Awsat are the right partners helping us achieve this in Iraq.

"Nokia's solution meets the security requirements of public sector and mission-critical applications, thereby enabling us to secure the network with high-capacity and high-performance protection."

Rima Manna, head of Nokia's Middle East Market Unit, said: "We are grateful to ITPC for placing its trust in our abilities to deliver critical communication services.

"We are committed to enabling the best-in-class services by building a robust mechanism for managing internet gateways. Our advanced IP routers will be instrumental in supporting ITPC's connectivity and traffic management requirements."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
