Huawei Builds Optical-Layer ASON Network for VietNam's VNPT

Huawei Technologies has deployed an optical-layer Automatic Switch Optical Network (ASON) network for Vietnam Post and Telecommunication Group (VNPT), covering Hanoi and the northern provinces. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Huawei describes the project as the largest of its kind in the world, involving installation of hundreds of Huawei ASON products across Northern Vietnam. The network is able to ensure high carrier-class reliability of services even in the case of multi-point failures. The service level agreement (SLA) is also supported, which enables VNPT to define different service reliability levels and priority levels for different customers. In addition, the ROADM and tunable OTU technologies realize the fast provisioning of services and the decrease of maintenance difficulty and maintenance cost.
