NICE, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2016) - The third Optical Network (ON) Innovation Forum was jointly-hosted by Huawei, Light Reading, and Heavy Reading on June 28 in the sunny city of Nice, southern France. More than 200 globally leading operators, upstream and downstream industry chain suppliers, industry analysts, and media experts participated in the forum. The consensus on Huawei's network construction concept "Simplified Network, OTN Everywhere" signifies the fact that the deployment of OTN devices to CO can now achieve optimal video service experience using hard pipes with zero congestion, zero packet loss, and low latency.
Experts from globally leading operators Orange, Vodafone, Telefonica and consultancy firm IHS discussed how networks evolve amid rapid development of emerging services such as 4K video, LTE/LTE-A, and FMC. Major operators in the industry reached a consensus on several key issues, among them optimal 4K video experience achieved by WDM device deployment to CO and flattened simplified network architecture, SDH modernization, and CRAN bearing implemented using OTN-based large-capacity low-cost solutions.
Experts also discussed future DC-centric technology development and focused on hot button issues such as WDM to CO, 100G, beyond 100G, T-SDN, and soft capabilities. Huawei launched the innovative Transport Service Application Platform (TSAP) to provide a powerful graphical application programming integration environment to support agile development and fast deployment of service applications. Industry leaders such as operator Telefonica, component vendors NTT Electronics, sub-system vendor Acacia Communications, and consultancy firm OVUM made speeches at the forum, promoting value aggregation of the optical network industry chain and driving healthy development of the industrial ecological chain.
As an industry-leading optical transport solution provider, Huawei dedicates itself to providing innovative WDM/OTN transport solutions and constructing networks that furnish operators with the optimal user experience. This event served as evidence of the resolve of Huawei and its industry partners to further promote optical network development and to achieve win-win outcomes.
