Huawei announced on Christmas that it has deployment an intelligent optical distribution network (iODN) for Rostelecom in Perm Krai, Russia. The iODN deployment, which aims to boost broadband services, is a first for the country, Huawei asserts.

The iODN effort comes as part of Rostelecom’s plans to roll out a fiber to the home (FTTH) network. The new iODN will ease deployment efficiency and O&M of the fiber-optic network, Huawei says. For example, electronic and transparent resource management will protect Rostelecom’s FTTH infrastructure investment and reduce the cost of capacity expansion, according to the systems house. The network supports real-time monitoring of network construction and resilient adjustment of fiber links as well for faster service provisioning. Finally, network reliability and O&M will benefit from the iODM’s multi-level link-quality-assurance mechanism that supports real-time monitoring of link quality and fast fault diagnosis.

"The iODU network deployed by Huawei is great. It simplifies the O&M of fiber networks, helping us deliver high-quality services and lower O&M costs." said Korolev K.G., chief technology officer (CTO) of Rostelecom's Perm branch.
