China Telecom taps Huawei for ROADM deployment

Huawei has secured an exclusive contract for China Telecom’s Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) Network Project, the first intelligent ROADM WDM backbone network to be built in China. The network will be deployed in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River- the fastest developing region in China- to help meet the region’s robust demand for fast broadband to support data storage and analysis for applications including big data, cloud computing and the IoT. This project covers 21 ROADM sites in Hubei, Jiangxi, Anhui, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Shanghai, and can provide over three hundred 100G electrical lines and 100% network recovery capability.
