SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today unveiled its new WDM prototype, improving upon the current mainstream commercial products that use a 50GHz fixed spectrum interval. Boasting the highest spectrum efficiency among WDM products currently available, Huawei’s WDM prototype features a flexible spectrum interval with a minimum granularity of 12.5GHz, which not only increases the spectrum utilization and flexibility of the WDM system, but also lays a solid foundation for multi-carrier technologies and next-generation bandwidth-flexible optical networks beyond 100G. This highly efficient spectrum technology will enable carriers to build WDM networks that meet future needs.

The popularity of broadband services has triggered a rapid increase in transmission capacity and a drive towards 100G networks. Technologies beyond 100G WDM have now become the next research hotspots, with multi-carrier technology acknowledged as the solution for 400G and 1T transmissions. All current mainstream WDM systems are based on a 50GHz or 25GHz spectrum interval, as spectrum utilization is insufficient for 400G and 1T multi-carrier transmissions. The highly efficient WDM prototype developed by Huawei increases the spectrum utilization for large-capacity WDM systems. This compact spectrum solution will make the high-speed signals of the multi-carrier slimmer, ensuring the fiber is able to transfer signals more effectively.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
