At the Next Generation Optical Networking (NGON 2022) held in Barcelona, Spain, Huawei stood out from many vendors to win the “Best New Gamechanger or Innovation” award in the optical field. The award recognizes equipment vendors’ efforts to continuously innovate in the optical transport field by providing a comprehensive range of solutions.
Huawei has devoted itself to the optical field and ranked first in the optical communications market for 14 consecutive years, and has world-leading basic research capabilities. Huawei also continuously leads innovation in fields such as ultra-high-speed, ultra-broadband spectrum, and all-optical switching OXC. At the 20th NGON Forum in 2018, Informa presented Huawei with “Best Single-Channel Programmable 400G Product” Award.
At the NGON Forum 2022, Huawei showcased the next-generation 400G coherent modules. Based on the innovative GSC FEC algorithm and ultra-nyquist (FTN) spectrum shaping technology of the new Turbo architecture, 400G transmission performance is continuously improved. To date, Huawei has deployed 400G networks worldwide for more than 50 operators.
Moreover, Huawei also released the industry’s first ultra-broadband spectrum Super C120+L120 solution, which will facilitate the generational evolution of backbone networks from 100G/200G x 80-wavelength systems to 400G x 80-wavelength systems. Based on the new element doping of erbium fibers and technological breakthroughs, this solution doubles the available spectrum resources of optical fibers, marking another historic breakthrough in the optical transmission field.
Huawei’s continues to make technological breakthroughs in all-optical switching OXC. Since the launch of the industry’s first OXC in 2017, Huawei has put more than 3,000 OXCs into commercial use worldwide, helping achieve green connectivity. At this NGON Forum, Huawei unveiled a miniaturized blade OXC device for metro networks, forming a series of end-to-end OXC products to build the green all-optical network. Compact Edge OTN devices with blade OXC capabilities will help carriers deploy WDM devices to COs, commercial buildings, and even wireless network sites.
Huawei actively contributes to the industry standards of autonomous driving network by launching the all-optical autonomous driving network (ADN) solution. More than 300 sets have been deployed worldwide. Innovative features such as optical network health assurance, intelligent co-cable detection, and intelligent alarm compression enable proactive O&M and greatly improve efficiency.
Huawei’s premium private line solution has been put into commercial use by dozens of carriers around the world. This year, Huawei has launched an innovative OTN P2MP solution, which helps carriers build inclusive OTN quality private lines and expand the user base 10-fold.
Victor Zhou, President of Huawei’s optical transport domain, said:
“Huawei has long been committed to making strategic investments and technological breakthroughs in the optical communications domain, helping operators build ubiquitous high-quality optical connections. Through OTN, it continues to be deployed to COs, sites, campuses, buildings, and data centers to enable digital transformation in various industries. We are committed to achieving λ to Everywhere, Premium Connectivity Lighting up the Digital World.”
