Huawei Launches Its Flagship Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) Product to Singapore’s Enterprise Market

Huawei hosted the Singapore OptiX Club – an online technology webinar. Themed "OptiX, lighting up your mind", Huawei together with its business leaders and technical elites explored the role of fiber optical networks in digital transformation and technological innovation across all industries. Huawei also launched its flagship product for data centre interconnect networks (DCI), Huawei OptiXtrans DC908, to Singapore’s enterprise market at the event.

The rapid development of big data, cloud computing, and mobile Internet has given rise to massive traffic generated between data centres. The increasing demand for simple, high-performance data centre interconnect (DCI) solutions has surged as data centres evolve and expand all the way to the network edge. According a report by Omdia, total revenue of the global DCI market reached US$3.7 billion in 2019, with the growth coming largely from regions such as Europe and Asia Pacific. In 2019, revenue in the DCI market in Asia Pacific reached US$1.326 billion, representing a robust year-on-year growth of 13.8%.

“We have seen a surge of over 50 percent online traffic under the current climate. It’s critical for enterprises to strengthen their data center infrastructure to provide consistent digital experience for their customers with reliable network connectivity,” said Aaron Wang, Managing Director of Huawei Enterprise Business Group Singapore. "Today we are here to introduce Huawei’s latest Intelligent OptiX Network strategy and our star DCI product, the OptiXtrans DC908, that will help enterprises meet the growing demands of network capacity expansion with an all-optical network foundation.”

Utilising Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 to build Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) networks with ultra large bandwidth, simplified architecture
Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 features an ultra large capacity of 800 Gbit/s per wavelength supporting flexible configuration between 100G and 800G, and future-proof Super C+L technology to achieve 220 wavelengths. With the challenges of today’s massive data flows, this cutting-edge product helps enterprise customers to cope easily, minimise the cost per bit and improve customer’s return on investment. A single 2U device can support up to 12.8 Tbit/s ultra-high integration. Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 supports both optical and electrical integration, and converges five kinds of boards into a single one, reducing device footprints and saving equipment room space in terms of architecture. Huawei OptiXtrans DC908, powered by the network-level webGUI, automatic fiber discovery, and automatic commissioning technologies, allows IT technicians to deploy new services in 8 minutes with simple mouse clicks. Meanwhile, Huawei’s AI technology enables intelligent network O&M, which can automatically predict more than 60% of gradual failures and reduce false alarms through automated analysis of the failure origins.

In February 2020, Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 was recognised as "Leader" of Data Center Interconnect by GlobalData. Huawei’s all-optical DCI equipment (Huawei DC OptiX) was also ranked No.1 in 2019 by Omdia in its Data Center Interconnect Market Share Outside of North America report.

Huawei has helped over 120 key industry customers across more than 60 countries efficiently deploy DCI networks by the end of 2019. Its customers include China’s internet giant Baidu, Netherland’s ISP customers like AMS-IX, and financial leaders such as the National Bank of Greece.
