ZTE Corporation helped China Unicom complete China's first automatic provisioning of multi-protocol cross-vendor services in the existing Optical Network (ON).
ZTE said that it has worked together with China Unicom to complete the country’s first automatic provisioning of multi-protocol cross-vendor management & control system and multi-scenario end-to-end services in the existing network of China Unicom.
According to a press release from the international provider of telecommunications, enterprise, and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, this test has verified the automatic service deployment and interface openness of ZTE’s intelligent management and control system ZENIC ONE, and put the interoperability and disaggregation of multi-vendor devices in the ON (Optical Network) into practice.
This greatly boosts the ON integration of the operator and lays a strong foundation for the automation of its enterprise networks, it said.
As the ON gradually expands, China Unicom aims to achieve ON integration by implementing automatic end-to-end cross-vendor service creation in its existing network to deliver better services for its enterprise customers.
In this test, the SD-OTN collaborator developed by China Unicom was used to connect with the intelligent management and control systems of different vendors, one of which is ZENIC ONE, the press release said.
The collaborator can successfully obtain intra-domain and cross-vendor inter-domain topology and link resources, automatically create and delete unprotected and protected services transparently transmitted by ODU (Optical Channel Data Unit), automatically create and delete unprotected and protected services transmitted by EOO (Ethernet over OTN), and allow service bandwidth adjustment on-demand and fault locating.
