Huawei Shows Off Optical Transport

LOS ANGELES -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, is showcasing innovative products and solutions for high-capacity transmission at this year's OFC/NFOEC 2012 from March 6-8 in Los Angeles, Calif. As video content and business services drive bandwidth requirements for operators, Huawei has continued to develop innovative optical network solutions to address exponential traffic growth while minimizing total cost of ownership, energy consumption, and footprint.

Following its successful ULH transmission of 100G coherent solutions across 3,000km of Corning® SMF-28® ULL optical fiber (an ultra-low-loss ITU-T G.652-compliant optical fiber) in the fall of 2011, Huawei is demonstrating its second-generation 100G solution, a single wavelength, Optical Interoperability Forum (OIF) compliant technology utilizing SD-FEC which improves 100G system reach up to 30 percent.

Huawei is also heavily involved in standards efforts and research to unlock the next capacity leap beyond 100G. The company is spotlighting its first-generation 400G technology utilizing Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) Polarization Division Multiplexing-16 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (PDM-16QAM), enabling up to 16 Tbps of capacity at 100 GHz spacing or 21 Tbps of fiber capacity by removing guard bands with flex-grid technology.
