Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 again named DCI leader by GlobalData2021-01-10         Follow @huaweinewos Tweet to @huaweinewos
When we hear the name Huawei, we first think of smartphones. In fact, when it comes to “technology”, we should think of Huawei. There are many product varieties, from smart toothbrushes to Deva data centers and excellent speed servers. Our huaweinewos.com page will share with you news about all products of Huawei. Let me talk about the award received by Huawei OptiXtrans DC908, one of these products and selected as the Leader for the second time.
GlobalData’s Competitive Landscape Assessment, Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 was chosen as a leader twice in a row by GlobalData for its outstanding features such as architecture, performance, modularity, client-port capacities, line interfaces, transport capabilities and network management.
Digitalization has become an urgent need in 2020, and data mobility boosts corporate productivity. The increase in data brought about by developing applications (such as live broadcast, e-commerce, online education and telework) should not be ignored. To meet these challenges, a DCI network with high bandwidth and reliability, fast service provision and easy O&M is required. Such a network will improve an organization’s ability to respond to emergencies, improve levels of innovation and seize new opportunities. Meanwhile, the solution also provides ways to effectively reduce DCI costs (such as footprint, electricity and fiber rental) for businesses.
Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 is built on Huawei’s DWDM technologies and the company’s expertise in data centers, IT, and intelligent algorithms. According to the GlobalData DCI equipment rating standard, the product is competitive in:
Architecture, performance and modularity:
Device throughput reaches 12.8 Tbit / s, and 1 Gbit / s data transmission consumes less than 0.13 W of power. Meanwhile, the optical layer and the electrical layer can be integrated into a single box.
All modules are hot-swappable and can be replaced within 15 seconds.
All system boards support 1 + 1 redundancy, providing system level flexibility and availability for data centers.
Client port capacities:
It is compatible with various service interfaces (ETH, FC, SDH and OTN) and access modules (QSFP +, QSFP28, QSFP-DD, SFP + and SFP28) and adapts its application for different industries.
The Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 is an optical-electrical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) transmission device designed for Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and ready for the toughest challenges of the intelligent era, OptiXtrans DC908 features: simplified deployment, from scratch to completion in just eight minutes; ultra-broadband and high integration, with 48T per fiber (smooth single-fiber upgrade to 88T, sufficient for the next 10 years); and intelligent, proactive Operations and Maintenance (O&M) that’s AI ready.
Maximum speed can peak with programmable capacity up to 800 Gbit / s per wavelength, from 100 Gbit / s to 800 Gbit / s.
With its special Super C + L band technology, it can reach 220 wavelengths in the standard 50 GHz range, the maximum capacity can be updated from 48 Tbit / s to 88 Tbit / s to meet the needs of the next decade.
With an innovative AI-powered network management system, Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 ensures service availability by implementing the world’s first DCI solution with intelligent and proactive O&M, fiber failure prediction, co-coupled fiber cable detection and accurate root cause analysis.
Simplified optical layer design and network level WebGUI (Web Graphic User Interface) provide fast deployment and service deployment in 8 minutes without professional skills.
Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 gained worldwide acclaim just one year after its release. In April 2020, Interop won the only award in the DCI field in Tokyo. The solution has been successfully implemented in more than 50 countries on five continents, covering ISP / OTT, finance, government, education, energy and manufacturing customers in China, Western Europe, Japan and Singapore. In addition, the OptiXtrans series was distributed by more than 4,000 customers in 158 countries and regions, fueling digital transformation in various industries.
“Huawei will seek to increase the innovation of the Huawei OptiXtrans product line and partner with global organizations to drive DCI networks into an era of ultra-broadband, simplified and intelligent,” said Kim Jin, Head of Huawei Enterprise Transmission and Access Network Domain.
