NEW DELHI -- Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, was recently selected by Mediacom Communications, one of the nation's largest cable television companies and the leading cable operator focused on serving the smaller cities and towns in the United States, to deploy Next-Generation Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (NG-DWDM) transport across over 4000km of Mediacom’s backbone network through the states of Missouri, Iowa and Minnesota.

Under the agreement, Huawei will provide Mediacom with its OSN6800A NG-WDM platform utilizing the latest in optical technologies with multi-degree ROADM, tunable optics, and OTN cross-connects. The network solution will support 10/40G and future 100G wavelengths to competitively deliver advanced, high bandwidth services today and well into the future.

“Huawei’s dedicated support resources, understanding of our network requirements and ability to meet our aggressive project delivery dates were key factors in selecting them as our partner for this project,” said Greg Euker, Director of IP Networks, Mediacom. “Huawei’s technology and solutions allowed us to migrate to a next-generation platform and cost-effectively deliver innovative services to meet the growing demands of our business and residential customers.”

“This large scale deployment is an important project showcasing Huawei’s commitment to the North American multiple system operators (MSO) space,” said Carl Liu, Executive Vice President of Huawei North America. “We are committed to delivering a quality network to Mediacom and continuously supporting our customers’ All-IP network transformation through the high-quality products and services.”

As part of Huawei’s All-IP convergence strategy, the OSN6800 is a flexible and manageable WDM transport platform based on OTN (Optical Transport Network) and ASON (Automatically Switched Optical Network) architecture. The system uses advanced technologies to help telecom operators build a flexible, IP/Ethernet friendly and cost-efficient future-proof transport network. This product helps operators to deal with rapid increases in traffic and fast network expansion challenges in a highly scalable and protocol agnostic platform. The OSN6800 has been successfully deployed in the networks of leading operators in Asia-Pacific, Europe and Latin America.
