Telecom Lead Asia: Huawei has been selected by Beltelecom
to deploy the first commercial 100G WDM network in Belarus. The Huawei network
will employ optical coherent detection technology.
The network will cover 1,200 km. The longest service path
will be spanning the distance from Grodno (on the Polish border) to Vitebsk (on
the Russian border).
Huawei will be using ePDM-QPSK coherent 100G technology.
The 80-channel WDM system has capacity of up to 8 Tbit/s without the need for
conventional DCM modules.
Moreover, the network will offer ultra-broad bandwidth
for data services in Belarus as well as leased-line services, transmitted
between Europe and Asia, for Russian carriers.
“Huawei has been our long-time partner and we have
witnessed the success of Huawei’s 100G trial networks. I am confident that the
commercial coherent 100G system will ensure ultra-broad bandwidth with high
stability for the national backbone and ultimately help to serve our customers
better than ever,” said Sergey Sivodedov, chief technical officer of
Huawei claims that it has 16 commercial 100G networks and
more than 50 trial 100G networks deployed to date.
Huawei provides first-class transport network products
such as WDM/OTN/ MS-OTN, MSTP/Hybrid MSTP, microwave products, and end-to-end
According to Ovum, Huawei ranked No. 1 in the global
optical network market, WDM/OTN market, and 40G network market as of Q3 2011.
