ZTE launches the ZXONE 9700 Packet OTN series

ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has unveiled the ZXONE 9700 Packet OTN series, its next generation packet optical transport platform (P-OTP).

The ZXONE 9700 series features universal packet and optical data unit (ODU) switching capability, supports network evolution to beyond 100G and is compatible with software defined networking (SDN) technologies. The platform is expected to further strengthen ZTE's global market position in the optical network industry.

Faced with recent industry challenges such as the explosion in data traffic, cloud computing and IDC applications, operators have looked towards the transformation of transport infrastructure, requiring an efficient, flexible and packet-oriented transport network which can cope with new service demands and increasing competition.

“The optical network industry needs a new mechanism capable of transporting packets efficiently,” said Wei Xiaoqiang, ZTE BN product director,. “The ZXONE 9700 series introduces more advanced technologies into the transport infrastructure network, which helps operators build a packet-oriented, 100G-enabled and flexible transport network.”

The ZTE ZXONE 9700 series offers a universal switching capacity from 2T to 14T, with the potential of a further upgrade to 28T, enabling operators to achieve greater flexibility and optimised wavelength utilisation to meet increasing bandwidth requirements. The ZXONE 9700 also extends multi-protocol label switching-transport profile (MPLS-TP) networking capability from the core to the metro/regional network.

In addition, the ZXONE 9700 series is a future-proof platform, with SDN compatibility and the ability to handle future 400G transmissions.
