SHENZHEN, China, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- During the 21st Huawei Analyst Summit, the forum "Building an F5.5G all-optical target network and ushering in the 10-year UBB intelligent era" was held Gbps", where industry stakeholders deliberated on how to apply F5.5G optical technologies to build intelligence for home and industry. Also at this forum, Bob Chen, president of Huawei's optical commercial product line, said: "To move towards the intelligent era in the next 10 years, a high-quality computing carrier network, that is, premium computing, will be needed. F5.5G all-optical network must be built to ensure that computing power is always on with 99.9999% availability and instantly accessible with 1ms latency. With its 10Gbps ubiquitous access, the network makes computing power is accessible everywhere and connects ubiquitous intelligence, enabling intelligence across multiple industries."

Technologies such as basic AI models are rapidly being integrated into various industries. And in the intelligent era, intelligent computing data centers are accelerating the development of distributed and multi-layer architecture, building on what was previously centralized, posing new challenges and requirements on networks.

Without a doubt, the F5.5G premium all-optical computing network is the best choice for carrying computing power and consists of three parts:

First, the 3D mesh backbone computing network. With 3D mesh architecture, 400G/800G ultra-high bandwidth and 99.9999% availability, the network achieves non-blocking interconnection and lossless collaboration between intelligent computing data centers, efficiently connecting resources IT for operators, industries, data centers and the Internet.

Second, the metropolitan computer network in one leap. The full mesh metropolitan core network enables the shortest path between intelligent computing data centers to reduce interconnection latency to 1 ms. In addition, OTN to edge implements all-optical switching, single-hop service transmission, and computing access to network access, meeting the requirements of individuals, households, and enterprises for computing access within 1 ms.

Third, 10Gbps intelligent access network. 50G PON to the home and 10G FTTR to the room are creating 10Gbps ultra-wideband channels. Additionally, intelligent identification of access services, intelligent hard slicing, and interconnection with upstream OTN hard pipes provide a localized experience for services that require high computing power, such as cloud PCs and cloud rendering.

In addition, an intelligent management and control platform has been created to implement efficient operation and maintenance of complex networks, support rapid access to computing power, and ensure that computing power is always active.

Industry representatives were invited to give speeches to jointly promote industry-wide cooperation. Martin Creaner, CEO of WBBA, predicted: "Global subscription to gigabit broadband services will reach more than 44% by 2028, and the industry must work together to address inequality in broadband infrastructure development in several regions, while breaking the OTN bottleneck to ensure gigabit user experience. With the advent of the AI ​​era, the industry should also begin to prepare for the 10-gigabit society."

Gao Hongfu, deputy general manager of Optical Network Alliance (ONA) proposed: "With the release of F5.5G standards, Wi-Fi 7 will be used in future campus construction to accelerate 10Gbps upgrades. The input and output of fiber are inevitable for campus networks."

Finally, all forum participants advocated close industry-wide cooperation in terms of scenario-specific applications and experience upgrading to seize the development opportunities of the F5.5G optical industry, ushering in the UBB intelligent era of 10 Gbps at the same time.
