Huawei helps China Telecom build all-optical backbone transport network

Huawei has exclusively won the bid for China Telecom´s Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) Network Project in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, the company said.

This is the first intelligent ROADM WDM backbone network to be built in China, marking the beginning of China Telecom´s optical transport network evolving towards the intelligent optical networking era. This is also a major step forward for the “CTNET2025” network transformation strategy of China Telecom.

In the all cloud era, to satisfy the requirements of larger bandwidth and lower latency, Huawei will help operators to build the future-facing CloudOptiX transport network and realize the simplified one-hop transmission network architecture, and closely work with operators, enterprise customers, and upstream and downstream industrial partners to advance the development of optical networks.

The digital transformation brings important opportunities. Network construction is transforming from being technology-driven to being business value-driven, and technological development is gradually shifting back to being business focused. Huawei´s all cloud network solution is centered on the realization of business value. By building agile, smart, highly efficient, and open all cloud networks, Huawei helps customers achieve business success.
