Openreach has launched what it claims is the first ever UK-wide 100Gb capable service, which it says will enable broadband providers to cater more adequately for the ever-increasing data demands of customers.

BT’s national telecoms network operator says that its new suite of high-bandwidth optical services will not only enable ISPs to transport larger amounts of data, but to do so over longer distances, and also in a more cost effective way.

Set to be available by the end of this month, the technology will harness BT’s existing next generation optical network across 120 core locations and be supported by Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform.

Jon Hurry, Managing Director for Strategy, Commercial, Portfolio & Policy at Openreach, said the new optical services are "future-proof" and take advantage of BT’s "unrivalled investment" in fibre infrastructure across the UK.

"They also come with the backing of our combined professional service teams, giving customers access to world class expertise and support from both Openreach and Ciena," he added.
