SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced the launch of its metro-edge end-to-end, elastic, and enhanced optical transport network (E-OTN) product—ZXMP M721 CX66A at the 2017 Next Generation Optical Networking and Optical Data Centre Interconnect (NGON & Optical DCI) Forum. The ZXMP M721 CX66A has high integration, large capacity, intelligence and energy saving design with low deployment cost, and is applicable to service transmission in the convergence and access layer.

With the rapid development of 5G and big video services, the demand for bandwidth has increased sharply, and the transport networks with very large capacities are required. The ZXMP M721 CX66A can promote service development in the big bandwidth era from many aspects including service access, service transmission, operation and maintenance management and energy saving.

The ZXMP M721 CX66A is a highly-integrated compact E-OTN product. It adopts optical-electrical integration design and supports reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) and centralised electrical cross-connection technologies. It implements non-blocked cross-scheduling of optical channel data unit (ODUks), packets (PKTs), and virtual containers (VCs). Various high-order modulation methods are supported, and the board speed at the line side can reach 200 Gbit/s. The software-defined optical networking (SDON) technology is used to construct an intelligent and open network architecture. The OTN-lite and super-low delay technologies are used to support future 5G network deployment.
