(2) Huawei OptiX OSN 7500/7500II MSTP

The OptiX OSN 7500 intelligent optical switching system (the OptiX OSN 7500 for short) is the next-generation intelligent optical core switching (OCS) equipment and is developed by Huawei on the basis of the current situation and development trend of the metropolitan area network (MAN).The OptiX OSN 7500 is mainly used as a service scheduling node at the metropolitan backbone layer. That is, it functions as optical core switching equipment (OCS). As an intelligent optical transmission platform and core optical transmission system, the OptiX OSN 7500 is located at the metropolitan backbone layer to schedule and transmit services of different types and granularities.

The OptiX OSN 7500 II intelligent optical switching system (the OptiX OSN 7500 II for short) is the next-generation intelligent optical core switching (OCS) equipment and is developed by Huawei on the basis of the current situation and development trend of the metropolitan area network (MAN).The OptiX OSN 7500 II is mainly used as a service scheduling node at the backbone layer of the MAN. That is, it functions as optical core switching equipment (OCS). As an intelligent optical transmission platform and core optical transmission system, the OptiX OSN 7500 II is located at the metropolitan backbone layer to schedule and transmit services of different types and granularities. The OptiX OSN 7500 II is of a “universal switch” architecture. That is, the OptiX OSN 7500 II can be used in packet mode or in TDM mode. When used with the other equipment of Huawei, the OptiX OSN 7500 II supports various networking applications, such as the pure packet mode application, hybrid networking application (overlay networking of the packet mode and TDM mode), and pure TDM mode application. By using a proper networking solution, the data service and conventional SDH service can be processed in the optimal manner.

Hot Huawei OTN

What is OTN? An optical transport network (OTN), a type of network, refers to a transport network that implements transmission, multiplexing, routing, and monitoring of service signals in the optical domain, and guarantees performance indicators and survivability.

Huawei provides these popular OTN platforms.

(1) Huawei OptiX OSN 1800 OTN Platform

The Huawei OptiX OSN1800 is a series of box architecture Multi-Service Optical Transport Network (MS-OTN) transmission equipment that supports Time Division Multiplexing (TDM), packet, and Optical Transmission Network (OTN) services over a metro or campus optical network. This equipment enables multiple high-bandwidth services (from 2 Mbit/s to 100 Gbit/s) to be delivered at less cost. The OptiX OSN 1800 supports resilient, low-latency video transmission, real-time industrial automation applications, and server-based multimedia applications. It provides cost-effective transport solutions for power, medical, Storage Area Networks (SANs), data centers, and video surveillance.
