ZTE Successfully Completes OIF Interoperability Demonstration

- Mar 15, 2018-

The 43rd American Fiber Optic Communications Exhibition (OFC) was held at the San Diego Convention & Exhibition Center in the US. ZTE Corporation was invited by the Optical Interworking Forum (OIF) to participate in the demonstration of the physical layer interconnection of the intelligent optical network (OIF PLL Interoperability Demo 2018 ) This joint demonstration has effectively promoted the progress of interconnection and interoperability among multi-producer home FlexE interfaces, which in turn has promoted the development of the entire industry and triggered widespread concern and praise from the industry.


      The demonstration of the physical layer interconnection of the intelligent optical network organized by OIF was jointly attended by 14 manufacturers including ZTE. The demonstration mainly included three technologies: Flex Ethernet (FlexE), single channel 112G electrical signal and CEI-56G- End-to-end optical link of the VSR electrical interface. ZTE's on-site demonstration of 5G bearer key technology, FlexE Tunnel, demonstrates the outstanding performance of ZTE's 5G Flexhaul solutions and products. ZXCTN 609, ZTE's 5G Flexhaul bearing product participating in the demonstration, is the industry's first 5G forward return integrated device. It implements physical isolation and network slicing based on FlexE and supports interfaces such as CPRI, eCPRI, and Ethernet to meet different 3G, 4G and 5G wireless groups. The unified bearer requirements of the network provide ultra-large bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and ns-level time synchronization accuracy, supporting scenarios such as pre-transmission, Chinese transmission, and backhaul. ZTE's 5G Flexhaul solutions and products can fully meet the bearer requirements and stringent performance challenges of different types of 5G service differentiation, and effectively promote the maturity of FlexE technology and the development of its industry.

      In addition, ZTE Corporation was invited by the OFC organizer to deliver a keynote speech at the 5G seminar. The theme was "The innovative FlexE solution meets the rigorous 5G transmission requirements" and in-depth exchanges and discussions were held with participants in the industry.

      ZTE Corporation is committed to leading 5G bearing innovation, continuing to promote pilot and verification of 5G bearer solutions in all directions, and recently completed multiple tests with leading operators such as Telefonica and China Mobile to fully verify the 5G Flexhaul solution based on FlexE Tunnel at CPRI. /eCPRI Excellent performance in terms of uniform bearer, ultra-low latency, ultra-fast protection switching, and more. 5G pioneers, bears the lead, ZTE's 5G Flexhaul solutions and products mature and have trial commercial capabilities, dedicated to help operators 5G commercial acceleration.
