Vodacom and Nokia build 500Gbps network

Vodacom and Nokia announced in a statement on Tuesday that the two companies have successfully established a high-capacity 500Gbps link between Vodacom's regional data centres in Midrand.

They also built a 300Gbps link over a long-distance route between Cape Town and Midrand. This was achieved without any electrical regeneration on a route that spans more than 1,600 kilometres.

A 1600km link with no repeating is pretty neat.
The wavelength routing they mention is even cooler! Like L1 routing of the wdm wavelength.
