Huawei’s OSN 9800 Wins the NGON ‘Best Optical Product - 400G and Above Award’

Jun 22, 2017

[Nice, France, June 22, 2017] Huawei announced today that its OSN 9800 has been awarded ‘Best Optical Product - 400G and Above’ at the 19th Next Generation Optical Networking event (NGON), recently held in Nice, France.

The Huawei OSN 9800 wins the ‘Best Optical Product - 400G and Above’.

The award for Best Optical Product - 400G and Above is one of the most important awards in the optical transport field. It fully reflects Huawei's technical advantage and leading role in the high-capacity and ultra high-speed optical transport field. With Huawei-developed core technologies, the 400G ultra high-speed solution of OSN 9800 support multiple modulation formats such as 16QAM, 8QAM, and QPSK to flexibly adapt to different bandwidth and distance requirements. The chip and module utilize advanced industry techniques to provide increased performance, effectively improve system integration, and reduce the cost and power consumption per bit transmitted. With Huawei OXC all-optical switching solution, large-capacity switching and multi-degree optical-direction grooming can be utilized to satisfy the massive DC data bearing requirements.

Huawei’s single-carrier 400G solution has already finished field tests with leading operators. With advanced modulation technology and a super SD-FEC algorithm, the transmission distance of Huawei’s single-carrier 400G reached more than 250km. Huawei’s 400G solution already supports long-term stable operation and can meet current network deployment needs.

"I am pleased that Huawei’s OSN 9800 won this award. It is another important recognition of Huawei's long-term strategic investments and continuous innovation in the high-speed optical transport field", said Richard Jin, President of Huawei Transmission Network Product Line. "Currently, Huawei’s 400G ultra high-speed solutions have been commercially deployed in the networks of multiple operators globally. Huawei is committed to providing customers with world-leading innovative transport network solutions to satisfy customer requirements, and to promote network cloud transformation together with peers in the industry."

According to IHS, a well-known consulting firm in the industry, Huawei has maintained an industry leading position for 9 consecutive years in the global optical network market.

Digital transformation is bringing new development opportunities. Network construction and evolution is moving from a technology-driven to a business-driven approach. With business at the core of Huawei's All-Cloud Network, it will deliver agile, intelligent, efficient, and open networks that empower customers to achieve commercial success.
