ZTE launches new 400G optical transport network solution with industry’s largest cross-connection capacity
ZXONE 9700 S2 delivers as much as 9.2 terabits per second cross-connection capacity
24 September 2015, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, has launched a new 400 gigabits per second (400G) optical transport network solution with the industry’s largest cross-connection capacity to help customers meet growing metropolitan area network (MAN) bandwidth requirements.
The new ZXONE 9700 S2 solution, launched at the PT/EXPO COMM CHINA conference in Beijing, is capable of providing as much as 9.2 terabits per second, cross-connection capacity, with packet optical transport network (OTN) capabilities to enhance bandwidth utilisation of MAN networks. The ZXONE 9700 S2 enables more flexible and intelligent networking, and supports the evolution to software-defined optical network (SDON).
