As a WASON product, the ZXUCP A200 released by ZTE is a WDM/OTN-based GMPLS control plane software system. Relying on the optical wavelength cross-connection and ODUk electrical cross-connection technologies, it realizes automatic, intelligent, highly efficient and reliable networks. Integrated with many complicated standard protocols, the ZXUCP A200 is supposed to launch a revolution to make traditional optical transport networks step forward to intelligent optical transport networks.
Automatic service scheduling: automatic discovery/route and signaling
Use standard GMPLS protocol family: LMP is used for resource management, OSPF-TE is used as the routing protocol and RSVP-TE is used as the signaling protocol.
Intelligent wavelength and ODUk service grooming
Links of the optical layer (wavelength OCh, 10G, 40G,100G and Beyond 100G).
Links of the electrical layer (ODUk, k=0, 1, 2, 2e, 3, 4)
Fast service configuration
Multiple fast service configuration modes are supported: PC, SPC and SC.
Service Level Agreement (SLA)
WASON defines multi-grade service quality. So that, in the course of satisfying the requirements of different levels of services, the system can use flexible protection and recovery mechanisms to fight against multi-point failures in the WDM/OTN network.
Intelligent end-to-end service transmission
Create SC connections via the OIF, UNI interface to realize integration and unified scheduling of the IP network and optical network. It sets up foundations for users’ value-added services. The E-NNI enables the intelligent services to be transferred across multiple control domains.
Flexible Rerouting policy
ZXUCP A200 support many kinds of rerouting policy,such as: the best path, assign compulsory, service associated, routes maximum separated, routes maximum reused and shared risk link group.
CP 1+1 Backup
Control plane using 1 + 1 backup, to ensure the stability of the network, the stability of reliable running. When two control planes are failure, the link which has successfully established or successful connected is not affected.
