China's ZTE rolls out new-gen compact optical Omni-gateway

ZTE Corporation announced that it has launched its new-generation compact metro edge ON products – the optical Omni-gateway ZXMP M721 series, namely ZXMP M721 CX66A (E) and ZXMP M721 CX63A (E).

The products, in a compact size, can support all-scenario access of 4G/5G/home broadband/enterprise/cloud services with large-capacity and unified cross-connection, said a press release from the international provider of telecommunications, enterprise, and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet.

In addition, they apply to the aggregation layer and access layer of a MAN(Metro Area Network) or local network to make operators' optical network deployment flexible and efficient, it said.

With the large-scale deployment of 5G networks, digital transformation of the industries, network cloudification, and optical networks' increasing use at access, optical networks, as an important foundation of transport networks, are confronted with bigger challenges in scale, bandwidth, latency, and equipment integration.

"To solve the challenges, ZTE launches the optical Omni-gateway ZXMP M721 series, which features ultra-high integration. With a maximum height of 6U, the series can support a maximum of 15 service slots, effectively saving equipment footprint and power consumption and substantially reducing operators' CAPEX and OPEX," the release said.

The series can support 80×10G/100G/200G systems, and fully satisfy the optical network bandwidth demands of new services.
