JUNE 17, 2010 -- Huawei, a provider of next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, has launched the OSN8800 T16, a metropolitan OTN system, at the 2010 WDM & Next Generation Optical Networking event in Monaco.

This new transport system accommodates bandwidth-heavy services, such as data, video, and storage, and reduces operator costs with easy maintenance, energy efficiency, and space-saving features.

Poised to enable operators to handle future bandwidth demands, the OSN8800 T16 achieves 40G/100G transport and offers full-service, cross-connection capabilities that support ODUk wavelength and packet cross-connections, offering flexibility and efficiency in wavelength utilization. By utilizing OTN cross-connections, which reach 640G and upgrade to 1.6T, OSN8800 T16 provides easy maintenance and fast service provisioning similar to SDH. Additionally, the OSN8800 T16 is designed with industry-leading photonics integrated device (PID) technology, achieving 120G capacity per card and reducing power consumption and space requirements.

"Operators worldwide are focusing on how to achieve fast service rollouts for metropolitan transport, while coping with the impact of high traffic on their live networks,” says Christian Chua, president of Transport Network Product Line, Huawei. “As part of Huawei' s All-IP convergence strategy, our OSN8800 T16 addresses these challenges and promises long-term customer benefits with its future-proof designs."
