1 July, 2019, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced its commercial CE-band 96-wavelength beyond 100G OTN system passed the on-site test of Hubei Branch of China Mobile and the FOA network access test of China Mobile Group.
Compared with the traditional C-band 80-wavelength 100G system, ZTE’s CE-band 96-wavelength 200G system increases the capacity by 140%; compared with that of the C-band 80-wavelength 200G system, the capacity of ZTE’s system is 20% higher.
In August 2018, ZTE cooperated with Hubei Branch of China Mobile to build the new provincial backbone beyond 100G IDC network, adopting the CE-band 96-wavelength 200G system. This system implements electrical cross-connection to achieve fast connection. By means of the fast assignment of ROADM system wavelengths, it supports flexible hybrid scheduling of optical and electrical layer services, thereby improving service provisioning and operation efficiency.
Meanwhile, the solution provides multiple routing channels and supports one-hop transmission on the optical layer, so it can effectively reduce the network latency and maximize the flexibility and intelligence of mesh network services.
ZTE has been continuously boosting technological innovations in beyond 100G transmission, leading in system capacity, transmission performance, the optical cross-connect technology and O&M. To date, ZTE has deployed more than 400 100G & beyond 100G commercial and trial networks all over the world, with the total length of the constructed network fibers exceeding 400,000 kilometers.
