OSN 8800

The OptiX OSN 8800 is mainly deployed in national backbone networks, regional/provincial backbones, and some metropolitan core sites. In addition to large capacities and long-haul WDM features, the OptiX OSN 8800 integrates:

• T-bit electrical cross-connection
• Full-granularity grooming ranging from 100Mbit/s to 100Gbit/s
• Optical-electrical ASON synergy
• 40G/100G transmission capability
• Various management and protection functions

Empowered by these features, the OptiX OSN 8800 provides carriers with end-to-end OTN/WDM backbone transport solutions to accommodate large-capacity grooming and ultra-wideband transmission.

Together, the OptiX OSN 8800 T64/T32/T16 and OptiX OSN 1800 can form a complete end-to-end OTN network. The OptiX OSN 8800 can also be used with the hybrid MSTP, PTN, or data communication equipment to achieve a complete transport solution.


The OptiX OSN 8800 is recognized as the platform with the highest integration level in the industry. One OptiX OSN 8800 subrack supports access of 320/640 x 10G services and two OptiX OSN 8800 subracks can be housed in one standard ETSI cabinet. The OptiX OSN 8800 can accommodate mass IP services and provide centralized grooming and unified management. Because one OptiX OSN 8800 subrack is equivalent to multiple subracks of other WDM equipment, the OptiX OSN 8800 saves 80% of the equipment footprint and reduces power consumption per bandwidth by 55%. OptiX OSN 8800 devices can be directly connected instead of through ODFs and therefore is highly reliable.

The OptiX OSN 8800 enables congestion-free 3.2T/6.4T-bit electrical cross-connections, supports complex network topologies, and provides centralized grooming of numerous services. It provides optical and electrical cross-connections and supports optical cross-connections in 2/4/9 dimensions using ROADMs. In this manner, OptiX OSN 8800 achieves flexible wavelength-level and subwavelength-level grooming and quick service deployment and reduces CAPEX. The OptiX OSN 8800 creates the first simply-structured Colorless & Directionless ROADM in the industry and simplifies node configurations for the optical-layer ASON.

The mature commercial 80 x 40G/100G system achieves transmission of broad bandwidths. The system provides both OCh-layer ASON and ODUk-layer ASON, a new optical-electrical ASON synergy mode pioneered in the industry by Huawei, featuring high reliability. With the leading photonics integrated device (PID) technology, the OptiX OSN 8800 provides 200G (20 x 10G) capacities of a single chip and allows expansion in batches, to achieve instant service deployment.

The OptiX OSN 8800 has the multi-service OTN (MS-OTN) feature:

  • Cross-connections of OTN/SDH/packet services on centralized cross-connect boards
  • Flexible transmission of OTN, SDH, and packet services to improve board utilization efficiency

The physical 2M clock, IEEE 1588v2, and Sync-Ethernet transport are supported to fully satisfy the requirement of TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000, and LTE networks for highly precise clocks.

The OptiX OSN 8800 supports OSNR/CD/PMD/optical power monitoring of any channel on 10G/40G/100G networks and real-time online monitoring of optical parameters, to improve network operation and maintenance (O&M) efficiency.

Thanks to the application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and PID technology, the power consumption of a single port is greatly reduced. Because of T-bit cross-connections, OptiX OSN 8800 devices can be directly connected instead of through ODFs, which saves equipment room footprint and reduces power consumption.

Application and Benefits

According to information released by Ovum, a well-known consulting firm in the telecom industry, by 2012 Huawei led the global optical network market, WDM/OTN market, and 100G/40G market, as well as the backbone WDM market. Huawei WDM/OTN solution has served 39 of the worldwide top 50 carriers.
