Huawei Announces 100th 100G

Huawei announced its 100th customer deployment for its 100G technology.  The first deployment occurred in June 2011 when Huawei built a pan-European 100G WDM backbone network for KPN International.

In 2012, Huawei rolled out the world's longest 100G network (25,000 kilometers across Asia and Europe) for Rostelecom Russia, as well as the world's first G.653 fiber based 100G network for TIM Brazil, a prelude to a wave of 100G deployments in Latin America. Huawei also deployed Africa's first 100G WDM network for Unitel Angola in the same year.

The 100G market in China kicked off with Huawei's deployment of a 100G WDM network for the China Education and Research Network (CERNET), and is taking off with Huawei and China Mobile's combined initiative to deploy the world's largest 100G OTN backbone network.
