ZTE to build 40G long-haul backbone network for Optimus

Based on optical networking product that combines high-capacity and long-haul transmission capabilities

By CBR Staff Writer

ZTE, a provider of telecommunications equipment and network offerings, has signed an optical transmission agreement with Optimus, a Portuguese communication services provider.

Under the agreement, ZTE will build a long-haul optical transmission network for Optimus to connect Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, with Porto, the country’s second largest city. The network that will be replacing current Optimus infrastructure, will be based on ZXWM M920 offering, an optical networking product that combines high-capacity and long-haul transmission capabilities.

ZTE said that the new ZXWM M920 offering supports a capacity of N*40Gbps and offers service access features and scheduling functions that enable the delivery of services including FC, 10GE and 40GE. The offering’s NMS supports a web function, enabling remote login and network monitoring.

In addition, the new offering also includes auto performance optimisation function that eases network maintenance. The equipment, which is in compliance with OTN standards, enables all-IP-oriented transmission and supports loading of GMPLS/WSON onto the control plane.

Chen Yufei, VP of bearer network at ZTE, said: “As with many other European carriers, Optimus is faced with the challenge of meeting the requirements of a growing customer base and the exponential demand for data, leading it to upgrade its infrastructure with a cutting-edge solution. With its high-capacity and superior transmission performance, ZTE’s 40G solution is well-placed to help Optimus build a next-generation network covering key Portuguese cities.”
