Bill Wang from Huawei: Building an All-Optical Target Network Can Drive Continuous Business Value Growth
DUBAI, UAE, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire-Asianet/ --

Today, the 7th Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF2021) is opened in Dubai. In the 
agenda of the first day, Bill Wang, Vice President of Huawei's Optical Product 
Line, delivered a keynote speech. He pointed out that in addition to benefits 
in energy saving and rate improvement, all-optical target networks also 
accelerate the digital transformation of various industries, bring premium 
service experience, and generate higher business values. 

Global operators continuously increase investment in optical fibers, improve 
broadband quality, and develop services such as FTTR and OTN premium private 
lines to increase the revenue from fixed networks. As a fundamental element of 
green and smart cities, all-optical target networks have gradually become an 
industry consensus. 

However, in the process of building all-optical target networks for smart 
cities, operators still face difficulties such as high costs, slow service 
provisioning, and difficult management in FTTH ODN construction. In addition, 
device deployment, network evolution, and new service development also 
represent pressing concerns.

Bill Wang, Vice President of Huawei's Optical Product Line, said: "To solve 
these problems, Huawei has released the DQ ODN and Edge OTN series products. 
These products have been designed to help operators quickly build all-optical 
target networks that are visible and manageable from end to end, greatly reduce 
operator O&M costs, and provide a high-speed entrance to the digital world for 
various industries and households. They can help operators expand the 
enterprise market, improve home broadband experience, reduce costs, and 
increase revenue. 

DQ ODN is a solution that implements plug-and-play, scanning for resource 
visualization, and one-click O&M through pre-connection, intelligent image 
recognition, and optical iris technologies. With this solution, operators can 
quickly build an all-optical target network that is visible and manageable from 
end to end. Specifically, the solution has the following features:

-The pre-connection technology with low insertion loss is used to adapt to 
multiple outdoor and indoor network solutions. It supports all-scenario network 
construction without splicing, greatly reducing the ODN construction 
difficulty, improving the construction efficiency by 70%, reducing the TTM by 
30%, and reducing the TCO by 15%. 

-Intelligent image recognition and the industry's first optical iris technology 
are used to automatically identify key feature changes of optical signals after 
they pass through ODN links, and perform big data modeling and analysis on the 
network management platform. In this way, the ODN link topology and resources 
can be accurately managed in a visualized manner, and the long-term resource 
accuracy can reach 100%. In addition, this solution can work with Huawei's 
service provisioning and fault locating platform to implement fast service 
provisioning and accurate fault locating, greatly reducing O&M costs for 
Edge OTN is a full-scenario and full-service integrated bearer platform. It 
supports indoor and outdoor cabinets and OLT/BBU co-cabinet deployment, adapts 
to installation in all cabinets, and meets the requirements of high-speed 
energy-saving transmission at integrated access sites.

-Blade-OXC based on LCoS optical switching enhancement supports one slot for 
one optical direction, reducing space usage by 75%. The products are compact 
and flexible, and can be deployed in various scenarios.

-Thanks to the silicon photonics technology, the size and power consumption are 
reduced by more than 60%. In addition, the capacity is increased by five times.

-The Liquid OTN technology is used to support OSU slicing, 2M to 100G service 
access, on-demand hitless bandwidth adjustment, and ultra-low latency, 
providing premium connections for various industries.

Highly integrated edge OTN devices can be easily co-sited with OLTs, extending 
premium optical connections to each organization. Large enterprises can use the 
OTN P2P private line solution to achieve premium E2E connections. For a large 
number of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), Huawei launches the 
innovative OTN P2MP solution to help them quickly improve connection quality. 
The solution also helps operators expand the private line market space.

In his speech, Bill Wang also said that all-optical networks can be further 
applied to industries to promote digital transformation and build a secure, 
efficient, and experience-guaranteed all-optical base for smart cities. Optical 
fibers can be extended to factories and machines. All-optical networks can 
provide premium connections with anti-interference, high bandwidth, and low 
latency. When used in hospitals, optical networks can ensure massive data 
transmission to support telemedicine.

Finally, Bill Wang said that all-optical networks are the main contributor to 
the growth of home broadband and enterprise service revenue. All-optical 
networks will further enrich our life and work and promote digital 
transformation. Ubiquitous optical connections will bring infinite
