Serving 40 telecoms, Huawei’s 100G network is longer than Earth circumference

Telecom Lead Asia: Huawei announced that its 100G networks cover over 50,000 kilometers, longer than the circumference of the Earth.

At present, Huawei’s 100G networks are serving more than 40 carriers in over 30 countries and regions across Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. These include 100G network for Russia’s carrier Rostelecom, and a pan-European 100G WDM network for KPN Netherlands.

Recently, Ovum said Huawei is leading the global wave of large-scale 100G deployment with a 39 percent market share.

Contributors to the success include: Huawei uses SD-FEC/HD-FEC 100G and OTN technologies. Huawei started the R&D of 100G core algorithms and optical modules in 2006, and managed to surmount complex technical challenges, including bit errors in submarine and aerial fiber transmission and transient service interruptions caused by equipment deterioration in high temperatures.

Huawei is also forward-looking in the OTN field. The OTN device Huawei launched in 2008 has a capacity of higher than 6T, which remains the industry’s largest capacity to date.

“To create long-term value for our customers, Huawei is committed to understanding customer needs, delivering technological innovation, and optimizing the industry ecosystem. Huawei’s transport network will continue to surpass customer expectations,” said Jack Wang, president of the Huawei Transport Network Product Line.

Recently, Huawei conducted the world’s first pan-European 400G field trial and unveiled a brand-new series of achievements in 2012, including a 10 petabit all-optical switch prototype (PPXC), a flexible-grid WDM prototype with the industry’s highest spectrum efficiency, and a 2T WDM prototype.
