Huawei has launched its OptiCloud Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) platform - which connects cloud networks across standard interfaces such as NFC, SDN and OXC - to speed up the digital transformation and enhance business value for internet service providers. 

"Communication technology and information technology are converging to enable a fully digital world. The term ICT is no longer about just technology and architecture, but being part of a strong, new ecosystem that integrates ICT infrastructure providers and industry partners to create greater value for enterprises. Cloud data centres with open architecture are now at the heart of ICT infrastructure offerings that seek to integrate providers and industry players to help enterprises realise agile and coordinated innovation," said Wu Gang, President of Huawei Enterprise in South Pacific Region.

According to Huawei, the OSN902 eliminates interconnection challenges with its large capacity - since it features a 19-inch subrack designed to adapt to the installation environment in equipment rooms -- and its open management mode which allows "optimal user experience" on the bearer of DCI networks.

Huawei also adopted AC power supplies and heat dissipation mode of front air inlet and rear air outlet to suit the mode of installation in data centre equipment rooms. There is also no need for additional auxiliary facilities for DCI optical transmission devices.

In addition, the Huawei OSN902 has open interfaces which allow it to be easily integrated into the device system of the data centre. The product is 2 U high and supports a 2.4 Tbit/s access capacity. The Flex Grid technology of the product also provides a single-fibre transmission capacity of more than 20T.
