Can your network deliver today and scale for tomorrow? Our Wavelength services, built using DWDM technology, could be the solution you need. Dedicated, high-capacity transport designed to carry high volumes of traffic across long-haul stretches.
When your network is under more pressure to carry high volumes of data across long-distances, DWDM is the perfect technology for the job. Multiple wavelengths of light (or colors) are used to transmit data over the same optical fiber to efficiently utilize your infrastructure.
Our Wavelength services support diverse, bandwidth-intensive applications like video, voice, and storage across your global sites - with access to more capacity when needed. The simplicity of wavelengths makes your network more versatile and efficient when deploying point-to-point connections between remote sites and data centers.
We were the first to offer 100GE wavelengths on both sides of the Atlantic, and as of October 2022, we have deployed 400GE in 95% of our European network and 70% of our US network.
According to the latest Frost & Sullivan report, 400GE has been very well received by the market - especially when it comes to total cost of ownership (TCO).
Customers can choose single links or a redundant ring network topology to build their own network for connecting key sites.
From fast-growing startups to established fortune 500 businesses – you can entrust our wavelength services as the backbone of your business. Our extensive network connectivity offers you access to wavelength services across international borders.
Simple description of a couple of common Waves' use cases.
Data centers use high-quality DWDM optical solutions for transport between data centers supporting multiple large bandwidth services.
Big data organizations use DWDM for efficient, large-scale deployments to transport data between key sites.
DWDM continues to be the technology of choice for wholesale service providers building long-haul optical networks to serve their markets.

Two widely established Arelion products, but what are the differences?
Leveraging Cisco’s 400G QSFP-DD Bright Optical Modules to increase capacity and reduce energy consumption while cutting network costs, complexity, and footprint.
Today the networks that make up the public internet, including our own, enable more traffic than ever before to traverse the globe to its destination. The low latency, high bandwidth, and reliable Ethernet/MPLS based networks make it easy for companies to create the connections they need to reach customers and service providers they need, such as the hyperscaler cloud service providers.
DWDM has played an important role in optical networks, and increased the data capacity and utilization of the physical fiber dramatically. DWDM technology is based on the combination and transmission of multiple optical signals, with dedicated wavelengths simultaneously using the same fiber cable. Here’s how it works…
10 quick questions for our Arelion Wavelengths Product Manager
Arelion offers the following range of Wavelength bandwidth options: 1G, 10G, 100G and 400G.
Yes, we can provide kmz files on a case-by-case basis. Please, contact your Arelion account manager who will handle your request under NDA.
We support Ethernet (which is most popular) or Layer 1 framing (SONET/SDH or OTN).
Yes, our services are protocol-agnostic and based on the most transparent transport technology.
We recommend multiple diverse Wavelength services for our customers so that they can build their own protection with load sharing and load balancing, enabling them to maximize bandwidth availability in normal conditions. Protected services are also available - you can find more details about these in our Arelion Wavelengths product sheet.
The Arelion Wavelength SLA includes, amongst other things, monthly availability of 99,4% for single links and 99,99% for dual or protected links.
Yes. The Arelion DWDM network and core backbone services are monitored 24/7/365.
In our DWDM network we only deploy hardware from Infinera, Ciena or ADVA.
Our Wavelength customers are typically content providers and operators who build their own IP backbone networks, request remote peering or access to the cloud, and also enterprises with a need for highly transparent, dedicated bandwidth (including media, gaming, finance, manufacturing and research).
For lower bandwidth (up to 10G), Arelion can offer highly reliable and transparent Ethernet services that run over our protected MPLS backbone.
Ethernet services provide more flexible bandwidth options, with increments from 10Mbps to 40Gbps and a much wider network footprint. The services also come with a compelling SLA - 99,99% monthly availability on-net, 99,5% off-net and maximum 0,1% frame loss ratio. For higher bandwidth in some areas there is the option of Dark Fiber.
Configure and shape your network with different topologies using our EVPL and ELAN services.
Direct access to your cloud with a dedicated connection to the major Cloud Service Providers, AWS, Google, Azure, Oracle, and IBM.
High-speed Internet access without the need for an AS number or BGP Routing.
