NEWS: UPDATE


OPENREACH RECRUITS 3,000 APPRENTICE ENGINEERS FOR UK FIBRE BUILD


Openreach is to recruit 3,000 new trainees over the next 12 months to support its ‘full fibre’ broadband build plans. Te news was announced as the


company opened its new training school in Peterborough, one of 12 new regional fibre training centres built to support the roll out. Te opening was atended


by Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Amber Rudd MP. Around half of the engineers will be helping to deliver the company’s Fibre First programme, which is designed to bring fibre to the premises (FTTP) technology to more locations, including in Bury, Barking & Dagenham, Bexley, Croydon,


Greater Glasgow region, Harrow, Merton, Redbridge, Richmond upon Tames, Suton Coldfield, and Salford. Tis brings the total number of towns, cities and boroughs up to 25. Speaking at the training school


opening, Rudd said: ‘Tis is a huge expansion in high skilled, well-paying jobs across the UK, and yet another demonstration of the jobs success we have seen since 2010. It is also good news that these are some new training roles, developing the skills of our workforce.’ Openreach additionally plans


to publish information on its website detailing build plans for the next 12 months, including


the total number of exchange areas to be reached in each location. It will publish details of the specific exchanges where FTTP is currently being built, has already been built, or it intends to start building within the next three months.


Te company plans to


update this information every three months, as part of its commitment to supporting the government’s FTTP ambitions and strategy, as set out in the Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review.

€20M FIBRE BROADBAND EXPANSION ANNOUNCED FOR IRISH REGION


Ireland’s Meath region is set to benefit from an investment of €20 million for the introduction of fibre broadband. Te funding, from broadband operator SIRO, follows the successful roll out in Navan. Te eight towns to benefit from


SIRO’s fibre to the building network will be Ashbourne, Dunshaughlin, Ratoath, Trim, Dunboyne, Mornington, Laytown and Betystown. Work will make services available to a further 21,000 homes and business in the county. Minister for Housing and Urban


Renewal Damien English TD said: ‘I have been actively advocating in government for plans to help accelerate the roll out of high-


speed broadband across the country, so it is brilliant to see eight new towns in Meath get access to what is regarded as the international gold standard for broadband.’ Jackie Maguire, chief executive


of Meath County Council, added: ‘One of the key aims of Meath County Council’s digital strategy is to help boost the economic and social development of the county through improved digital capabilities. Te wider roll out of SIRO’s 100 per cent fibre-optic broadband network, which will now reach nine towns in the county, illustrates how we are delivering on that promise.’


MICROCHIP, ACACIA COMMUNICATIONS PARTNERSHIP ENABLES FLEXIBLE RATE OPTICAL TRANSMISSION UP TO 600G


Microchip Technology, via subsidiary Microsemi Corporation and in partnership with Acacia Communications, has demonstrated interoperability between Microchip’s DIGI-G5 Optical Transport Network (OTN) processor and Acacia’s AC1200 Coherent Module. Te collaboration’s objective


Eight Meath towns will see FTTB introduced under the investment 6 FiBRE SYSTEMS n Issue 23 n Spring 2019


is to enable what the companies say is ‘the industry’s first’ flexible rate system architectures with an established ecosystem to support the market’s transition to 200G, 400G, 600G and flexible rate OTN networks, built with new Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) and OTUCn protocols. By helping enable the market’s transition, from 100G to flexible transmission system architectures, service providers could deploy higher bandwidth Ethernet connectivity at a faster rate and lower cost with Optical Internetworking Forum’s (OIF) FlexE protocol. Combining it with OTUCn and tunable fractional dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transmission, offers the potential for service providers to improve their OTN network


capacity by up to 70 per cent. Microchip’s DIGI-G5 delivers


the silicon and soſtware to launch new terabit scale line cards with flexible rate optical interfaces for packet optical transport platorms. Combining this with the AC1200, next generation architectures will help to support the market’s growing demand for metro and data centre interconnect networks requiring 100G+ connectivity. Babak Samimi, vice president


for Microchip’s communications business unit said: ‘Demonstrating interworking of the DIGI-G5 with Acacia’s AC1200 coherent module highlights that the ecosystem is ready to support the market transition to these new protocols, rates and multi-terabit architectures.’ Benny Mikkelsen, chief


technology officer of Acacia Communications, agreed: ‘With Microchip’s DIGI-G5 scaling up capacity and reducing power at the same time, and the optical performance provided by our AC1200, we believe that Acacia and Microchip are helping to enable the market to scale network capacity with improved efficiency.’
