JANUARY 18, 2010 -- Undersea carrier GlobeNet has selected Huawei to deploy a next-generation DWDM optical platform in a U.S. portion of its network.

Huawei’s turn-key, plug-and-play upgradable NG-DWDM platform will connect GlobeNet’s cable landing station in southern New Jersey to its point of presence (POP) sites in New York City via two diverse paths. These links allow GlobeNet to seamlessly offer high availability services from NYC to its cable landing sites in Brazil, Venezuela, Bermuda, Florida, and beyond.

Under the agreement, Huawei will provide its OSN 6800 NG-DWDM OTN optical platform hardware and also upgrade the software of GlobeNet’s existing iManager T2000 Network Management System (NMS). The network upgrade will support 10-, 40-, and future 100-Gbps wavelengths. As part of Huawei’s all-IP convergence strategy, the iManager T2000 will integrate the existing Huawei add/drop equipment and services presently in place with the new DWDM equipment and services for a unified managed approach.

“Huawei’s understanding of our network requirements, dedicated support resources, and ability to meet our aggressive project delivery dates were key factors in selecting them as our partner for this project,” said Luiz Alonso, director, engineering and operations, GlobeNet.
