Huawei Unveils Smart Optical Line Terminal

Huawei introduced a "smart: optical line terminal (OLT) with distributed architecture for next generation passive optical networks (NG-PON).

The SmartAX MA5800 is designed for the rapid creation of new network services as fixed broadband increasingly shifts from home access to multi-service access (e.g. enterprise access and Wi-Fi hotspot backhaul), and from simple bandwidth-rental operations to flexible user experience operations.

It leverages a distributed architecture to provide non-blocking access for high-density 10G-PON, 40G-PON, 100G-PON, and WDM-PON. Both the PON and P2P ports on the MA5800 support fixed mobile convergence (FMC) access including home access, enterprise access, mobile backhaul, and Wi-Fi hotspot backhaul. It also supports WDM-PON, which can be used to provide multiple symmetrical P2P channels over one fiber line and features high quality of service (QoS) and high service security.

Huawei also noted SDN-based smart service capability , which enables centralized management on massive ONUs of various types to achieve high O&M efficiency and low OPEX.

"Huawei endeavors to improve the end user's experience and build an intelligent access network with faster broadband, wider coverage, and smarter connection," said Jeff Wang, President of Huawei’s Access Network Product Line. He added, "The new OLT launched by Huawei, the MA5800, supports the FMC service, provides an optimized smart service experience, and unlocks the potential of ultra-broadband enabling carriers to gain an advantage over their competitors."
