New metropolitan OTN to enable operators to handle future bandwidth demands

Huawei has recently launched the OSN8800 T16, a next-generation metropolitan OTN (Optical Transport Network) system.

It accommodates bandwidth-heavy services such as data, video, and storage, and significantly reduces operator costs with easy maintenance, energy-efficiency, and space-saving features.

Poised to enable operators to handle future bandwidth demands, the OSN8800 T16 achieves 40G/100G transport and offers full-service cross-connection capabilities that support ODUk wavelength and packet cross-connections, offering more flexibility and efficiency in wavelength utilization.  By utilizing OTN cross-connections, which reach 640G and easily upgrade to 1.6T, OSN8800 T16 provides easy maintenance and fast service provisioning, similar to SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy). Additionally, the OSN8800 T16 is designed with industry-leading PID (photonics integrated device) technology, achieving 120G capacity per card and dramatically reducing power consumption and space requirements.

Christian Chua, president of Transport Network Product Line, Huawei, said, "Operators worldwide are focusing on how to achieve fast service rollouts for metropolitan transport, while coping with the impact of high traffic on their live networks. As part of Huawei’s All-IP convergence strategy, our OSN8800 T16 addresses these challenges with its advanced features and promises long-term customer benefits with its future-proof designs."
