Experience with Optical Infrastructure for Time and Frequency Transfer

Vladimir Smotlacha, and Josef Vojtech

Abstract: This paper describes the advanced version of the TF-infrastructure that utilizes links and other resources of Czech academic network CESNET2. Currently (2017), the total fiber length in the TF-infrastructure is over 1600 km of which 1100 km are in routine operation and the rest can be used for experiments. The DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology is deployed on majority of the optical fibers and allows to share them with multiple date channels up to 200 Gb/s.
