China Telecom Deploys Huawei's 100 Gbps DWDM

China Telecom has installed an end-to-end 100G WDM system linking the cities of Nanjing and Wuxi in the Jiangsu province. The deployment uses Huawei's optical transport platform.

Huawei noted that its solution enables bandwidth pooling and hybrid 100G and 40G services to be transmitted from Nanjing to Wuxi over hundreds of kilometers without having to use an electrical regenerator. Huawei's 80-channel system with 40 Gbps per channel solution and Tbit-level OptiX OSN 8800 are adopted in this OTN network.

"The successful deployment of this 100G system with our strategic partner China Telecom has launched China into the ultra-broadband era," said Christian Chua, President of Transport, Huawei. "100G is key to satisfying the growing demand for high-bandwidth services and enabling rapid telecommunications development to continue in China and around the world. We look forward to working with our global partners to continue providing high-quality, cost-effective solutions for the ultra-broadband era."http://www.huawei.com
