Features & Benefits
Unified Transport for 5G Ultra-broadband Era
Large-capacity hardware architecture
T-bit platform, powerful evolution capability and various high-speed high-density interfaces, including 10GE, 25GE, 50GE, 100GE and 400GE, comply with high-bandwidth requirements urged by the 5G era.
Eco-friendly and energy-saving design
Provide in-house 3-in-1 chips to make per-gigabit power consumption 50% lower than commercial chips, allow automatic shutdown of idle hardware resources pursuant to resource use status, and support advanced air ducts to enhance heat dissipation efficiency and precisely controlled fan speed based on different component temperature.
Comprehensive and reliable solutions
Key components under redundant design and diversified technologies such as GR, NSR and ISSU ensure reliability and hardware-based fast switching of large-capacity services in milliseconds.
Protection switching of the TI-LFA in any network environment and signal degradation protection. Provide SR-TE HSB, RSVP-TE HSB, TE FRR, PW FRR and VPN FRR-level protection.
SDN Architecture and Elastic Network
Advanced SDN and IP + Optical synergy
It supports IP + optical synergy and implements unified orchestration and synergy of IP networks and optical networks to reduce the TCO of the entire network.
It provides various open SDN southbound interfaces, including NETCONF, PCEP, BGP-LS. In cooperation with SDN controllers, it builds SDN-based networks to improve the resource utilization rate of the entire network from 20%-30% to 60%-80% and shorten new service deployment time.
Segment Routing, SRv6 and EVPN simplify network deployment, so the network has a high flexibility and scalability.
Fast provisioning and O&M
The plug-and-play function substantially reduces the network construction cost. The unified network management and control platform ZENIC ONE supports one-click service creation to activate services rapidly, and service provisioning time can be shortened to minutes. A series of automated tools for service cut-over, network capacity and preventive maintenance are provided to facilitate O&M.
Slice+ Network Slicing & Low-latency Forwarding
Slice+ network slicing
Support both soft and hard slicing. Soft slicing provides customers with slicing views with flexible topology and customized path calculation capabilities. Hard slicing provides more reliable and fine-granularity transmission resources for soft slicing.
FlexE cross-connect technologies bring in a sharp reduction in forwarding latency, and offer strong support for services like 5G uRLLC.
