Telecommunications firm Huawei has unveiled the next-generation Data Center Interconnect (DCI) transmission solution that will provide high speed and non-blocking data transmission and switching for cloud services; the firm announced at the just concluded Mobile World Congress hosted in Barcelona, Spain.

The solution aims to build an ultra-broadband, simplified, and intelligent DCI network by leveraging 600G/wavelength, OXC all-optical switching, and Network Cloud Engine (NCE) technologies and according to Huawei, this will address the limitations faced by data centers (DCs), such as fast traffic migration and bandwidth malfunctioning, which operate on Cloud computing and Big Data in driving for ICT transformation.

According to the Vice President of Huawei’s Enterprise Transmission Product, Chen Wenbo, the aforementioned upgrades will lead DCI into the new age of connectivity.

“Huawei attaches paramount importance to next-generation networks and continuously accelerates technological innovation. AI neurons integrate more AI capabilities into the network. In addition, OXC uses optical line printing technology to lead DCI into the era of all-optical interconnection” said Wembo.

“We will work with customers and partners such as cloud service providers, MTDCs, and IXPs to continuously build an ultra-broadband, non-blocking, and flexible DCI network.”

At the unveiling event, Huawei invited partner Netherland’s Tallgrass to share its thoughts on the DCI development and network construction challenges and Reindert Hommes, Tallgrass’ CEO, welcomed the phone maker’s next generation solution.

“Dozens of data centers have been built in Amsterdam. Although network meshing increases the connection density and complexity, Huawei’s all-optical switching OXC greatly simplifies fiber connections and optical-layer configurations. The traffic growth between data centers goes beyond our provisioning. Using 600G technology will reduce the cost per bit and build a more competitive DCI network,” Mr. Hommes explained.
