Lumen network is the only one of its kind in its industry thanks to the ultra-low-loss fiber and multi-conduit infrastructure that it possesses.
DENVER, Dec. 6, 2022 (PRNewswire) — In order to cater to the requirements of commercial enterprises, Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) has constructed the world’s largest ultra-low-loss fiber network.
Lumen is now making investments in a further six million fiber miles, which are scheduled to be installed by the year 2026. This is done in order to meet the steadily increasing demand for fiber.
Lumen expands intercity network by 6 million fiber miles
The existing intercity network in the United States has been expanded by 6 million fiber miles because to Lumen’s work. They were able to accomplish this by utilizing the pre-existing infrastructure of many conduits.
When everything is said and done, the total investment made by Lumen in intercity fiber in the United States will amount to around 12 million fiber miles.
People will have access to many routes that can take them to over 50 major cities as a result of this. This network is distinct from others due to Lumen’s multi-conduit system, which enables the rapid deployment of cutting-edge fiber technology and is the primary reason for this distinction. This system is the result of continuing changes to the underlying infrastructure.
It is difficult to replace legacy intercity networks without several conduits, hence these networks typically stick with older fiber technology.
Lumen’s Chief Technology Officer, Andrew Dugan, stated that “We are developing a next-generation network, and fiber type matters.”
Lumen is working on developing new technologies that will allow us to extend the range of signals in order to tackle this challenge. We are able to keep up with the rising demand for optical fiber, reduce the expenses of our equipment, and improve our bandwidth thanks to this.
Lumen has continued to use Corning’s SMF-28® ULL fiber and SMF-28® Ultra fiber as part of its continuous work to expand its network and refresh its infrastructure across cities. This work is part of Lumen’s ongoing efforts to grow its network. The most recent development in the study of optics.
A major advantage is having contented customers
Over 24,000 kilometers (15,000 miles) of Lumen’s intercity network have been repaired across the United States. It is possible that the Next-Generation Optical platform of the network will be easier to set up if you do this, which will result in an improvement in the network’s performance.
This system was developed in order to satisfy the ever-increasing requirements of the network.
Up until now, this fiber technology has been able to support Wavelength services at 400G, and it will continue to do so even as the speeds that consumers require rise.
When organizations do this, they are able to collect and analyze data in real time, which assists them in meeting the high bandwidth needs of their operations.
This fiber network is being constructed in order to facilitate a quicker connection between enterprises and the major cloud service providers. With the assistance of a program known as Topology Viewer, they are able to plan and construct their own network services to fulfill their digital requirements.
This new fiber technology is fantastic for companies who are looking for a dependable network backbone for their digital expansion that also has low latency requirements. This comprises companies, governments, and service providers who are searching for fiber in order to develop private networks that are scalable for new uses.
