Huawei’s ON2.0 Leads the Commercial Use of All-Optical Networks in Partnership with Operators Worldwide

May 20, 2019

[Nice, France, May 20, 2019] Richard Jin, President of Huawei’s Transmission and Access Product Line, shared updates on the commercial use of Huawei’s ON2.0 solution with more than 200 customers worldwide during Huawei's Sixth Optical Network Innovation Forum.

Richard Jin, President of Huawei’s Transmission and Access Product Line, spoke at Huawei's sixth Optical Network Innovation Forum

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, Huawei officially unveiled the concept of ON2.0, which features new speed, new sites, and new smart O&M to build experience-centric next-generation optical networks, helping operators to offer optical networks as a service and transform transmission networks from connectivity-centric to experience-centric, thereby enabling operator business success. Currently, Huawei’s ON2.0 solution has been implemented globally in the optical transport network field.

Richard Jin said that "Looking to the future, the bandwidth potential of optical fibers is infinite. In a fully-connected 5G era, Huawei proposes to redefine the optical industry. Massive connectivity will promote the continuous expansion of optical networks. When optical transport networks are moved from CO nodes to sites, the number of optical connections increases 10-fold; when optical connections extend from homes to rooms and from machine to machine, the number of optical connections will increase 100 fold. Optical networks will evolve from all-optical access to all-optical connectivity, which will increase the market space of optical networks from $30B to $100B. ON2.0 is on, and Huawei will continue to work with worldwide operators and seize the $100B market window of opportunity during the transformation towards all-optical connectivity and build next-generation optical networks for the 5G era."
