ZTE Launches 80-Wave x 100 Gbps Carrier Platform

ZTE announced an end-to-end carrier network optical transport solution boasting an 80-wave, 100G ultra-wide system capacity. ZTE's solution incorporates its ZXR10 T8000 100G cluster-based router, its ZXONE 8000 large-capacity cross-connect, and its ZXR10 8900E core switch, all operating over 100G interfaces. The 100G network, put together by these three high-end devices, are controlled by a unified network management plane.

ZTE also said it has independently developed multiplexing QPSK modulation technology need to support ultra-long distance transmissions of over 1000km without the need for power relays.

"ZTE has been actively promoting the development and commercialization of the 100G standards in the industry," said Fan Xiaobing, general manager of ZTE's carrier network product line. "We were heavily involved in drafting the proposal for the 100GE standard of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a key participant in advancing the 100G system of China Communications Standards Association (CCSA), as well as the proposal for the 100G standard of the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF)."
