ZTE Corporation has announced that the Guangxi branch of China Mobile and ZTE have jointly implemented the commercial deployment of the industry’s largest-capacity OTN+OXC system combining optical and electrical cross-connection.
This system employs ZTE’s electrical cross-connect subrack with the industry’s largest capacity of 64T – ZXONE 19700 and the OXC optical cross-connect platform.
The optical and electrical hybrid cross-connect system highly simplifies the operation and maintenance, significantly improves the efficiency of network deployment, O&M (Operation and Maintenance, and supports smooth upgrade in the future.
In this system, the Guangxi branch of China Mobile has adopted the ZXONE 19700, an electrical cross-connect platform provided by ZTE with the industry’s largest capacity of 64T.
This product supports a maximum capacity of 192T non-blocking electrical cross-connect cluster for commercial use, and supports smooth upgrade to double the capacity in the future, which can effectively address the medium and long-term network requirements.
Meanwhile, ZTE has also provided an optical cross-connect platform based on optical backplane switching, which is more advantageous than an ROADM system in terms of single-WSS (Wavelength Selective Switch) insertion loss, board integration and overall power consumption. It can implement automatic fiber interconnection, reduce the number of fibers and lower the error rate of manual fiber connection.
Moreover, the integrated optical label technology used by this optical cross-connect platform can implement intelligent monitoring and tracking of wavelengths, to significantly improve network deployment and O&M efficiency.
Dedicated to the research and application of optical transport technologies, ZTE has obtained hundreds of invention patents in the field of 100G/Beyond 100G and has more than 400 commercial application cases of 100G/Beyond 100G around the world.
ZTE is a provider of advanced telecommunications systems, mobile devices and enterprise technology solutions to consumers, operators, companies and public sector customers.
As a part of ZTE’s strategy, the company is committed to providing customers with integrated end-to-end innovations to deliver excellence and value as the telecommunications and information technology sectors converge.
Listed in the stock exchanges of Hong Kong and Shenzhen (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), ZTE sells its products and services in more than 160 countries.
To date, ZTE has obtained 35 commercial 5G contracts in major markets, such as Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (MEA). ZTE commits 10 percent of its annual revenues to research and development and takes leadership roles in international standard-setting organizations.
