NGON is one of the most important business and technology conferences in the WDM/OTN field. The award for the best optical network solution in 2018 is voted on by representatives from global leading operators, respected analysts, and industry media, carrying significant weight in the industry. Single-channel 400G is the most important technical point in the WDM/OTN field. The best single-channel programmable 400G transmission product award is a result of Huawei's long-term investment into the large-capacity and ultra-high-speed domains, and the culmination of the innovative capacity of thousands of leading engineers in dozens of R&D centers around the world.

Huawei's 400G ultra-high-speed transport solution enables various 400G programmable modulation formats and flexible adjustment by leveraging a unique channel-matched shaping (CMS) algorithm to adapt to complex link environments and different transmission distances. Moreover, this product uses the industry-leading 16 nm FinFET process and silicon photonics to improve the performance of 400G ports, reduce power consumption, and enhance system integration. This greatly reduces the per-bit transmission cost. In addition, Huawei's innovative optical network AI neuron module and Network Cloud Engine (NCE) quickly mark, detect, and collect all wavelengths on the optical network in real time. This implements autonomous optimization, self-protection, and early warning for performance deterioration of optical networks, helping operators smoothly evolve from traditional SDN networks to intent-driven networks.

Richard Jin, President of Huawei Transmission Network Product Line, said, "The global optical network industry is accelerating towards the 400G era. Huawei has long devoted strategic investment and technological innovation to the ultra-high-speed optical network field to consolidate its strengths there. In the future, Huawei will further promote the application of AI, Big Data, and cloud technologies in this field, helping operators build a user experience–centric, Intent-Driven Network."
