ZTE Demos Optical Transport Path Computation with China Mobile

ZTE announced a demonstration of a SDN path computation element (PCE) control solution for optical transport networks.

The test was conducted by ZTE in partnership with China Mobile and the Research Institute of Telecommunications Transmission of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

ZTE said its PCE solution fulfilled functions including integrated PCE, multi-domain service scheduling and optical/electrical hybrid scheduling on ZTE’s WASON (WDM Automatic Switch Optical Network) system.  The path calculation of multi-domain multi-layer OTN and resource assignment are seen as key enablers for intelligent management and control of optical networks, more efficient service scheduling, and improved resource utilization.
