Huawei Debuts Metro Ethernet Switches, IP-DSLAM

At this week's CommunicAsia show in Singapore, Huawei displayed new carrier-class Quidway CX series switches for metro Ethernet networks. The Quidway CX series switches are designed for carrier-class E2E services spanning the core layer, the convergence layer, and the access layer of a metro Ethernet.

On the IP-DSLAM front, Huawei showed its flagship SmartAX MA5600 broadband access platform, which is based on a Gigabit Ethernet switching architecture. The back panel offers 210 Gbps in aggregate capacity. The SmartAX MA5600 also integrates Layer 3 IP features and supports IPv6. It can also support controllable multicast and video autorelease for multicast services, providing a maximum of 1000 multicast channels. The system provides high-performance multicast modules for real-time channel switches even when all users on the system are operating simultaneously.

On the fixed network side Huawei is unveiling a range of fixed network terminal products including the C/S/T series DVB STB, EC series IP STB, HG series home gateway, MT series xDSL modem, and its digital home solutions.

Huawei is launching a variety of UMTS and CDMA handsets at the event. Huawei currently supplies 3G terminal products to customers in over 70 countries including China, Sweden, Portugal, Russia, India, Brazil, UK, Italy, Spain, France and Hong Kong.

Huawei showed a mini USB modem that supports multiple standards such as HSDPA, WCDMA, EDGE and GPRS and a transport rate of 3.6Mbps.
