GlobalData, a global market intelligence firm, just released Packet-Optical Access: Competitive Landscape Assessment (Access WDM for short) for 2023. According to the report, Huawei OptiX OSN 1800 series offers leading architecture, excellent transmission performance, and mature commercial use cases. All this has helped Huawei rank as the only "Leader" with the highest score in access WDM by GlobalData. Last month, Huawei OptiX OSN 9800 series ranked as a "Leader" in backbone and metro WDM by GlobalData, marking the third consecutive year that Huawei WDM products rank "Leader" in all-scenario competitiveness reports including access, metro, and backbone WDM.
GlobalData evaluated access WDM products from multiple top vendors in ten dimensions, including data features, capacity, transmission performance, physical attributes and management, client interfaces, and OTN interfaces. Huawei OptiX OSN 1800 has been ranked as the only "Leader" in access WDM by GlobalData with the highest score.
"The Huawei OptiX OSN 1800 V Pro provides industry-leading high-speed client port density and industry-leading switching capacity," said Emir Halilovic, Principal Analyst of GlobalData. "These features, together with diverse available client port types and high transmission capacity, enable carriers to use the OptiX OSN 1800 series in various transmission scenarios, including enterprise private lines and mobile transmission."
Huawei OptiX OSN 1800 series products are applicable to integrated transmission scenarios such as home broadband, mobile bearing, and enterprise private line at metro ends. Huawei OptiX Alps-WDM solution leverages highly integrated OptiX OSN 1800 series devices to extend all-optical switching OXC from the core layer to the access layer. By building a dynamic bandwidth resource pool, the solution achieves 100G to site, helping carriers reduce network construction costs by more than 30%. In addition, the capacity meets the requirements of all-service development and evolution in the next 10 years, enabling carriers to build metro networks with the optimal total cost of ownership. The highlights are as follows:
- Agile: Digital optical labels are developed to carry parameters such as wavelengths, spectral widths, and modulation formats without affecting channel services, cutting a large amount of labor costs and reducing O&M costs.
- Long-term evolution: The 100G/200G fully-coherent optical module is customized for metro networks to optimize and integrate algorithms, silicon photonics ICTR integration, and receiver sensitivity to achieve the optimal cost per bit.
- Pooling: The capabilities of nine traditional FOADM optical subracks are integrated into one ROADM optical subrack to build a wavelength resource sharing pool. In this way, each ring and node can apply for wavelengths on demand, saving device footprint and power consumption by more than 80%.
- Simplified: As the industry's first all-optical switching element, the MxN WSS optimizes the optical path layout, increases density, reduces insertion loss, and enhances the grooming capability. This extends all-optical switching OXC from the core layer to the aggregation and edge layers and enables E2E OXC capabilities.
