ZTE introduced a 400G OTN solution based on its ZXONE 8000 large-capacity cross-connect platform and ZXONE 9700 Packet OTN platform.
The 400G OTN solution is aimed at metro/regional core infrastructure networks. It features multiple modulations including Nyquist QPSK, 16QAM and 8QAM. Additionally the 400G OTN solution supports software-defined optical networking using ZTE-designed low-power chip sets, and photonic components.
“Faced with the challenges of rapid traffic growth, high bandwidth data centre applications and cloud computing, carriers have increasingly been considering building large capacity, evolving and ‘elastic’ networks. The ZTE 400G transmission equipment with multiple, adaptive modulations will be a must for all future networks,” said Mr. Wei Xiaoqiang, Director of ZTE BN products.
