Huawei Unveils OptiXstar S892E Campus Optical Network Terminal

Network Infrastructure

At the HUAWEI CONNECT 2020 event in Shanghai, Huawei introduced new products as a major upgrade to its enterprise-oriented Intelligent OptiX solutions.

These new products include the Huawei OptiXstar S892E, which is a smart optical terminal designed for enterprise campus high-speed Wi-Fi 6 backhaul network, and the Huawei OptiXtrans E6600 series, which is the industry’s first optical transport platform. with integrated Liquid OTN technology. These innovative products will enhance all-optical connectivity for the digital transformation of businesses.

Richard Jin, President of Huawei’s Transmission and Access Product Line said: “Fibers consume less power, offer ultra-wide bandwidth, and are secure and reliable. In scenarios such as industrial interconnection and enterprise campuses, Optical fibers are the preferred transmission medium for intelligent connectivity, something that is widely recognized by the industry. Huawei is committed to bringing industry-leading optical communications technologies to various sectors, to help companies build their networks. totally optical infrastructure, and facilitate the digital transformation of companies “.

Network Technology and Network Expansion

Huawei‘s Intelligent OptiX Network solution focuses on three scenarios: all-optical data center (Huawei DC Optix), all-optical transport (Huawei Single Optix), and all-optical campus (Huawei Campus OptiX).

Since its launch, the solution has been widely used in numerous sectors including energy, government, transportation, finance and manufacturing, serving more than 3,800 corporate clients in more than 150 countries. This year, Huawei fully updated its solution for all three scenarios. In all-optical data centers, digital intelligence addresses the technical demands of operation and maintenance (O&M) personnel, enabling IT engineers to take care of CT devices.

In fully optical transport, Huawei has launched Liquid OTN, that achieves the unified transmission of all services, with a latency reduction of 30%. And for all-optical campuses, Huawei has launched 40G PON technology, offering the industry’s highest rate for high-speed Wi-Fi 6 backhaul network for gigabit access.

At this event, Huawei introduced two new products for the global all-optical campus and all-optical transport scenarios:

The first product is Huawei OptiXstar S892E, which is a smart optical terminal that was designed for the Wi-Fi 6 backhaul network of campuses.

Wi-Fi 6 is increasingly popular in the business WLAN market, but its high air interface rate of more than 10 Gbit / s puts pressure on transmission bandwidth, reliability, and efficient deployment of the transport network.

Huawei OptiXstar S892E is the industry’s first optical terminal that supports 40G PON. It can support fast protection switching and automatic configuration, and it can address these challenges effectively. It was designed for the high-capacity Wi-Fi 6 backhaul network in campus settings such as businesses, schools, airports, and stadiums, and offers the following benefits:

High capacity: Huawei OptiXstar S892E takes advantage of the ultra-micro aggregation algorithm to offer higher uplink and downlink bandwidth than its predecessor, and achieve smooth Internet access on campus.

High availability: Huawei OptiXstar S892E has two 10GE optical ports that support each other. Thanks to the intelligent active-active Type C mechanism, key services can be identified in the event of a link failure, and links can be exchanged in a maximum of 50 ms, guaranteeing always-on services.

Smart configuration – Services can be delivered automatically through the AI-based auto-configuration mechanism, so the “plug and play” nature of the device can configure 100 of these optical terminals in one minute, resulting in a considerably more efficient deployment .

The second product is Huawei OptiXtrans E6600 series, which is used to develop a fast transmission network that functions as the infrastructure of vertical industries.

The energy, transportation, government, education, finance and manufacturing sectors are critical to a smart city. Furthermore, for simplified O&M, communication networks must also meet information security requirements.

The Huawei OptiXtrans E6600 series products are the industry’s first optical transport platform with integrated Liquid OTN technology, and are characterized by high reliability, high density and intelligent O&M, protecting production services and allowing all services to be transported in a single net.
