HUAWEI NGN OptiX OSN 1500 Intelligent Optical Transmission Module
The OptiX OSN 1500 intelligent optical transmission system (the OptiX OSN 1500 for short) developed by Huawei is the next-generation intelligent optical transmission equipment.
The OptiX OSN 1500 is of a "universal switch" architecture. That is, the OptiX OSN 1500 can be used in packet mode or in TDM mode. When used with the other equipment of Huawei, the OptiX OSN 1500 supports various networking applications, such as the pure packet mode application, hybrid networking application (overlay networking of the packet mode and TDM mode), and pure TDM mode application. By using a proper networking solution, the data service and conventional SDH service can be processed in the optimal manner.
The OptiX OSN 1500 efficiently transmits voice, data, SAN/Video, and video services on the same platform.
In packet mode, the OptiX OSN 1500 supports the following technologies:
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
ETH PWE3 (Pseudo Wire Edge to Edge Emulation)
In TDM mode, the OptiX OSN 1500 supports the following technologies:
Synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH)
Plesiochronous digital hierarchy (PDH)
Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM)
Storage area network (SAN)/Video
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM)
Digital data network (DDN)
OptiX OSN 1500 is mainly used at the access layer of the metropolitan area network (MAN). The network application scenarios are described as follows:
In TDM networking, can be networked with the other OptiX transmission equipment (the OptiX OSN 9560, OptiX OSN 9500, OptiX OSN 7500 II, OptiX OSN 7500, OptiX OSN 3500 II, OptiX OSN 2500, OptiX OSN 3500, OptiX OSN 500, and OptiX OSN 550) to optimize carrier investment, achieving a full range of networking solutions at the access layer, convergence layer, and backbone layer.
With the packet switching technology, can constitute a packet data transmission network with the other OptiX transmission equipment (the OptiX OSN 7500, OptiX OSN 7500 II, OptiX OSN 3500, OptiX OSN 500, OptiX OSN 550, and OptiX RTN 900) to meet the requirement for bearing IP services.
Can be flexibly networked with WDM equipment and Metro equipment.
Can transparently transmit services over third-party Layer 2 networks, allowing end-to-end configuration and management.
Universal Switch Architecture for Multiservice Grooming
OptiX OSN equipment uses a universal switch architecture for unified grooming of packet services and TDM services. OptiX OSN equipment can work in packet mode, TDM mode, or dual-domain (packet+TDM) mode.
The three modes can be smoothly switched by upgrading the software of a service board so carriers' requirements on services and networks can be met. The smooth switching between the three modes supports carriers' distributed smooth investment based on the development of the technology and industrial chain.
Based on a universal switch architecture, OptiX OSN equipment uses the packet transmission technology to perform efficient statistical multiplexing on data services so the transmission cost of every bit is reduced. In addition, OptiX OSN equipment uses the Native technology to transmit TDM services so voice services are transmitted with high quality.
Based on a universal switch architecture, OptiX OSN equipment unifiedly transmits packet services such as 2G, 3G, and VIP private line services so network overlapping is avoided. In addition, OptiX OSN equipment transmits TDM services. Carriers can constitute an end-to-end packet network, dual-domain (packet+SDH) network, or hybrid (MSTP+routers) network that bears L2+L3 services. This complete packet transmission solution allows an evolution from TDM networks to all-IP networks.
Built-In WDM, Flexible Networking
The OptiX OSN equipment uses the built-in WDM technology to transmit several wavelengths over one optical fiber. In this manner, the OptiX OSN equipment can be interconnected with the WDM equipment.
