Huawei Launches Latest Campus OptiX and DC OptiX solutions in Asia Pacific
Huawei has announced the launch of its Campus OptiX and DC OptiX solutions at the OptiX Club Asia Pacific 2020, an online technology forum hosting more than 1,000 C-suite executives and IT professionals across various industries. The aim is to help enterprises in the region to proactively cope with the opportunities and challenges brought by new technologies and applications, and pave the way for digital transformation in the near future.
According to Patrick Filkins, Senior Research Analyst, IDC, “Network is a foundational layer for enabling secure, scalable and efficient use of Cloud, Edge and IoT Applications. Enterprise digital transformation needs to be accompanied by network transformation. Based on the advantages of fiber optic technologies relating to bandwidth, energy consumption and transmission, we observe an increasing number of industries are leveraging optical network connectivity in production and operational environments such as enterprise campuses and data centers.”
Jason He, VP of Enterprise BG, Huawei Asia Pacific, said, “With the acceleration of enterprise digital transformation, the traditional network architecture needs to be reshaped. Leveraging Huawei’s R&D innovation capabilities and leadership in optical industry, we are confident that our star products, Campus OptiX and DC OptiX solutions, will help enterprises in Asia Pacific region sharpen digital competitive edge through an all-optical network foundation.”
Huawei Campus OptiX network solution enables fully optical campus network connections through an IP plus POL architecture. Not only does it share the advantages of flexible capacity, powerful service processing, service automation, and intelligent O&M with IP networking, but also integrates the favorable features of optical technology in energy-saving, simplicity, and high efficiency. This makes the solution particularly suitable for airports, educational institutions, hotels, offices, and other campus scenarios. The solution helps enterprise customers improve O&M efficiency by 60 percent, reduce power consumption by 30 percent, and support smooth network upgrade in the next 30 years.
By the end of 2019, Huawei Campus OptiX solution had helped more than 600 enterprise customers in over 40 countries deploy high-quality campus networks including Fudan University, Emaar Properties in UAE, and Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces hotel in India. Leveraging this latest Campus OptiX solution, Huawei will work with ecosystem partners to continuously help customers achieve optimal experience, eco-friendly operations, efficient O&M, and agile innovation.
The rapid development of big data, cloud computing, and mobile internet has given rise to massive traffic generated between data centers. Many enterprises choose to build their own data center interconnect (DCI) networks to ensure stable connectivity, premium cost control, and intelligent O&M. According a report by Omdia, revenue of the DCI market in Asia Pacific reached US$1.326 billion in 2019, representing a robust year-on-year growth of 13.8 percent.
“As a financial service provider, ITMX needs to guarantee the absolute safety and reliability of customer information. Therefore, security and reliability are on top of the agenda when building network infrastructure.” During the panel discussion, Mr. Songchai Phochai, Senior System Engineering Manager of National ITMX shared the reason why the company chose self-built DCI.
Recognized as “Leader” of Data Center Interconnect in 2019 by GlobalData, Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 features an ultra large capacity of 800 Gbit/s per wavelength supporting flexible configuration between 100G and 800G, and future-proof Super C+L technology to achieve 220 wavelengths. Meanwhile, Huawei’s AI technology enables intelligent network O&M, which can automatically predict more than 60 percent of gradual failures and reduce false alarms through automated analysis of the failure origins. This flagship product helps enterprise customers easily cope with the challenges of massive data flows in the cloud era, continuously reduce the cost per bit, maximize the value of optical fibers, and improve customers’ return on investment.
By the end of 2019, Huawei DC OptiX solution had helped over 120 key industry customers across more than 60 countries efficiently deploy DCI networks, including Baidu of China in the internet OTT sector, ISP customers like AMS-IX of the Netherlands, and financial leaders such as National Bank of Greece.
