25 years ago there was a significant change in the telecoms world. A new standard was needed to replace the Plesiochronous (PDH) infrastructures that had been built, and so a subset of Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET) called Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) was developed.
In 1992, Colt started to plan and deploy one of the first deployments of SDH networking in London. Over the years this evolved to include Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM), Wide Area Networking Technologies such as X25 and ATM; and then into today’s technology of Packet Switching, Long Distance Optical Networks, SD-WAN and on demand.
Watch today for our technical focused webinar where we discuss this evolution of technology from SDH and WDM to Ethernet, SD-WAN, the on demand future and Colt’s on demand roadmap.
