ZTE unveils TITAN optical access platform

Oct. 20, 2016
ZTE Corp. (0763.HK/000063.SZ) has taken the wraps off of its ZTE TITAN optical access platform at the Broadband World Forum 2016 in London. The platform supports multiple PON architectures as well as Optical Transport Network (OTN) transmission capabilities toward the metro core. The system reduces the number of systems operators will need to support high-bandwidth video and other broadband services and eases network transformation, ZTE asserts.

ZTE Corp. (0763.HK/000063.SZ) has taken the wraps off of its ZTE TITAN optical access platform at the Broadband World Forum 2016 in London. The platform supports multiple PON architectures as well as Optical Transport Network (OTN) transmission capabilities toward the metro core. The system reduces the number of systems operators will need to support high-bandwidth video and other broadband services and eases network transformation, ZTE asserts.

The TITAN is designed to support GPON, 10G PON, time and wavelength-division multiplexing PON (TWDM-PON, the technology at the heart of NG-PON2), and 100G/25G PON. The system optimizes time delay and packet loss via what ZTE describes as "hierarchy optimization," which also reduces routing and port resource requirements. The OTN capability, matched with high-capacity uplink boards, promotes the construction of flat networks with reduced network layers. The TITAN platform also will support virtual extensible LAN (VxLAN) and simplified configuration, ZTE asserts.

"TITAN redefines traditional optical access," said ZTE Vice President Cai Jingzhe. "In addition to deepening the OLT capability, this revolutionary platform covers future network transformation and adapts to the entire network evolution brought by rapid service development. Moreover, with innovative software and hardware architecture, TITAN will provide an important support for the development of the big video service."
