Huawei unveils high-capacity metro OTN product

Feb. 11, 2013
Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. has launched the OSN 1800 V at the global 100G WDM/OTN Seminar 2013 in Bern, Switzerland. The OSN 1800 V, Huawei’s new “case-shaped” Optical Transport Network (OTN) product, features what the company claims is the industry’s largest access capacity and highest integration among products of the same type, and offers a multi-service switching capacity of up to 700 Gbps.

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. has launched the OSN 1800 V at the global 100G WDM/OTN Seminar 2013 in Bern, Switzerland. The OSN 1800 V, Huawei’s new “case-shaped” Optical Transport Network (OTN) product, features what the company claims is the industry’s largest access capacity and highest integration among products of the same type, and offers a multi-service switching capacity of up to 700 Gbps.

The emergence of mobile broadband, streaming media, and large-granularity private-line services calls for multi-service optical transport over ultra broadband, which traditional metro networks fail to provide, according to Huawei. Case-shaped, “one-box” multi-service OTN devices that can provide both multi-service transport and large capacity are ideal for metro network applications, the company adds.

The OSN 1800 V, with 5U height, adopts a central switching design and thereby offers a switching capacity of up to 700 Gbps, meeting the future bandwidth requirements of metro networks for the next five years, in Huawei’s estimation. Furthermore, the OSN 1800 V supports the unified access and switching of TDM/packet services with rates ranging from 2 Mbps to 10 Gbps, catering for requirements of varied services such as voice, video, and high-speed Internet access. Through unified transport for broadband, private line, and wireless scenarios, the OSN 1800 V also effectively reduces the number of device types on metro networks, and simplifies network deployment and O&M.

“Large-capacity WDM device can also be mini and compact. By extending WDM technologies to the edge, Huawei’s OSN 1800 V provides a carefree, ultra-broadband transport solution for metro network, achieving bandwidth-on-demand in the real sense,” said Jack Wang, president of Huawei’s transport product line.

At the same seminar, Huawei also unveiled its 100G module based on second-generation soft-decision forward-error correction (see “Huawei unveils 100-Gbps optical module based on second-generation SD-FEC”).
