Huawei (News - Alert) announced its latest advancements in the field of optical communications, the new all-Optical Switching Network architecture that supports any network topology.

The company recently showcased the all-optical transmission and switching architecture at the OFC/NFOEC 2013 event, using prototypes based on this new architecture and technology.

According to the company, the All-Optical Switching Network technology is designed to get over the industry-wide challenge of switching multi-dimensional and multi-wavelength optical surges through use of innovative Optical Time Slot Interchange (OTSI) technology.

The company claims that all-Optical Switching Network technology is gainful and energy-efficient transport built using all-optical switching, without any need for Optical-Electrical-Optical (OEO) conversion or electrical switching. In addition, it enables any-topology, all-optical contention-less networking.

This new architecture can be tuned with traditional Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM (News - Alert)) networks.

Through its dedication to customer-centric innovation and strong partnerships, Huawei has established end-to-end advantages in telecom networks, devices and cloud computing. Its products and solutions have been deployed in over 140 countries, serving more than one-third of the world's population.

The company has been doing rigorous research in the field of all-optical switching and has yielded an Optical Burst Transport Network (OBTN) prototype and a Petabit Photonic Cross-Connect (PPXC) prototype. Both of these solutions were showcased at earlier OFC/NFOEC events.

Huawei’s products and solutions have been deployed in over 140 countries, serving more than one-third of the world's population. In addition, the company has set up 23 research centers in Germany, Sweden, the UK, France, Italy, Russia, India, China, and other countries. It has also established 34 joint innovation centers with top carriers to transform leading technologies into competitive advantages and business success for their customers.
