Huawei Develops 100G wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) Prototype

Huawei today announced the successful development of its 100G wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) prototype. With a transmission distance of up to 2,000km without using electrical regenerators, Huawei’ s 100G WDM prototype supports smooth upgrades from 10G/40G technologies. This innovation is expected to further promote and accelerate the commercial use of 100G WDM based solutions. The current boom in broadband services has placed significant bandwidth demands and 100G WDM technology represents the next-generation in high-speed transport. Operators can transmit 10 times the traffic as compared to 10G WDM technology; the most widely deployed networking bandwidth.

100G WDM lays the foundation for telecom operators to deploy ultra-broadband services such as HDTV and multi-play in the future.
