GlobeNet to Deploy Huawei's DWDM Platform

GlobeNet, which provides carrier transport services between North and South America, will deploy Huawei's upgradable NG-DWDM platform to connect its cable landing station, in southern New Jersey, to its Point of Presence (POP) sites in New York City via two diverse paths. These links allow GlobeNet to seamlessly offer high availability services from NYC to its cable landing sites in Brazil, Venezuela, Bermuda, Florida and beyond.

Specifically, Huawei will provide its OSN 6800 NG-DWDM OTN optical platform hardware and also upgrade the software of GlobeNet's existing iManager T2000 Network Management System (NMS). The network solution will support 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps, and future 100 Gbps wavelengths to competitively deliver advanced, high bandwidth services today and well into the future. Huawei's iManager T2000 will integrate the existing Huawei ADM equipment and services, presently in place, with the new DWDM equipment and services for a unified managed solution.
