ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has unveiled the ZXONE 9700 Packet OTN series, its next generation packet optical transport platform (P-OTP).
The ZXONE 9700 series features universal packet and optical data unit (ODU) switching capability, supports network evolution to beyond 100G and is compatible with software defined networking (SDN) technologies. The platform is expected to further strengthen ZTE's global market position in the optical network industry.
Faced with recent industry challenges such as the explosion in data traffic, cloud computing and IDC applications, operators have looked towards the transformation of transport infrastructure, requiring an efficient, flexible and packet-oriented transport network which can cope with new service demands and increasing competition.
“The optical network industry needs a new mechanism capable of transporting packets efficiently,” said Wei Xiaoqiang, ZTE BN product director,. “The ZXONE 9700 series introduces more advanced technologies into the transport infrastructure network, which helps operators build a packet-oriented, 100G-enabled and flexible transport network.”
The ZTE ZXONE 9700 series offers a universal switching capacity from 2T to 14T, with the potential of a further upgrade to 28T, enabling operators to achieve greater flexibility and optimised wavelength utilisation to meet increasing bandwidth requirements. The ZXONE 9700 also extends multi-protocol label switching-transport profile (MPLS-TP) networking capability from the core to the metro/regional network.
In addition, the ZXONE 9700 series is a future-proof platform, with SDN compatibility and the ability to handle future 400G transmissions.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...
