Globe Telecom announces the completion of its core data network upgrade to ROADM (Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer) to support the increasing bandwidth demand of its enterprise customers. This makes Globe the first carrier in the Philippines to deploy ROADM as well as 40G optical links over its Broadband Access Service Network (BAX).
ROADM is the latest technology adopted by Globe, which enables its network to be flexible and cost-efficient when delivering ultra-high bandwidths such as 2.5G, 10G and 40G. With ROADM, Globe is able to respond faster to unpredictable customer demands that require quick turnaround times for provisioning and upgrade. It also assures customers of scalability, as well as enhanced manageability and monitoring of circuits. Furthermore, since ROADM uses optical switching, end-users will benefit from lower latency and higher availability as it bypasses the optical to electrical to optical conversion used in today’s networks.
