ZTE Corporation has signed a new 100G optical transportation network (OTN) contract with Reliance Communications in India.
The Chinese vendor will provide 100G optical transportation network design, engineering, installation, and operations and maintenance services to Reliance Communications India in Pune and Hyderabad over the next three years.
Currently occupying 14% of Indian market share, RCom is the fourth largest operator in India. With mobile networks entering the age of long term evolution (LTE), RCom’s synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) was not able to meet growing data communication demands. ZTE’s 100G OTN solution allows RCom to quickly develop Pune and Hyderabad’s 100G metro area transmissions and greatly relieve long-term evolution (LTE) bandwidth requirement pressures.
With high integrity, ZTE 100G OTN supports any access rate from E1/T1 to 100GE, 4-22 client port with smooth evolution, as well as dense and coarse wavelength in one. At the same time, the product has highly efficient performance and can implement port self-adaption, dispatch subsystem (DSS) crossing, L2 switching aggregation, and common public radio interface (CPRI) transmission. Additionally, OTN encapsulation supports complete overhead, optical layer/electrical layer monitoring, and unified network management facilitating failure location and service configuration, which effectively improve operations, administration and management (OAM) efficiency.
