Huawei Launches New Metropolitan 40/100G OTN Platform

Huawei Technologies introduced its OSN8800 T16, a next-generation metropolitan OTN system with 640 Gbps system capacity and designed for efficient wavelength utilization in the transport of bandwidth-heavy services such as data, video, and storage.

The OSN8800 T16 offers 40G/100G transport with full-service cross-connection capabilities of ODUk wavelength and packet connections. The system capacity is upgradeable to 1.6 Tbps. Maintenance and service provisioning are similar to SDH. Additionally, the OSN8800 T16 is designed with photonics integrated device (PID) technology, achieving 120 Gbps capacity per card while significantly reducing power consumption and space requirements.

Christian Chua, President of Transport Network Product Line, Huawei, said, "Operators worldwide are focusing on how to achieve fast service rollouts for metropolitan transport, while coping with the impact of high traffic on their live networks. As part of Huawei' s All-IP convergence strategy, our OSN8800 T16 addresses these challenges with its advanced features and promises long-term customer benefits with its future-proof designs."
