Creonic Participates in International SENDATE-TANDEM Research Project

Kaiserslautern, Germany, May 4, 2016– Creonic is pleased to announce its participation in the SENDATE-TANDEM (Tailored Network for Data cEnters in the Metro) research project which is a sub-project of the CELTIC+ SENDATE project.

“TANDEM” addresses the challenge for a new network infrastructure with reference to high volatile data traffic of mobile linked up objects. A dynamic switching and a reliable transport of huge amounts of data as well as a handover of sensible, time critical application data without any interruptions must be provided between data centers.

Creonic contributes the development and demonstration of an advanced forward error correction (FEC) for future fiber-based transport network architectures. The FEC has to provide low latency, throughputs of hundreds or thousands of Gbit/s and first-class error correction capabilities.

The project volume of SENDATE is €72.8 millions. The SENDATE-TANDEM consortium consists of 27 partners located in France, Germany and Norway. Main industry partners are Nokia France/Germany (former Alcatel-Lucent), Orange, Gemalto, and Thales. The German partners receive funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Germany. The project has started in April 2016 and will be completed by March 2019.
