The first results of a field trial held in November 2000, of 1 Tbit/s (25 43 Gbit/s) unidirectional Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) transmission, are presented. The field trial used a 43 Gbit/s/channel Optical Transport Network (OTN) interface prototype and standard Single Mode Fibers (SMFs) installed in the Nara area network of NTT West Corporation. The features of this field trial include the accommodation of multiple services such as GbE, STM-16 and OC-48. Error free operation of 25 channels with 100 GHz spacing over a 91 km standard SMF with Forward Error Correction (FEC) is verified for STM-16. A DV stream over IP over Ethernet as a tributary channel was also successfully transmitted.
