ZTE to Support Telkom Indonesia in Java Backbone Network Upgrade
Published on: 13th Jun 2014
ZTE says that it has won a contract from Telkom Indonesia for a backbone network upgrade to deliver a 10 fold capacity increase in most of the network across Java.
Telkom Indonesia is currently upgrading their Java backbone network from 10 gigabits per second (10G) to next-generation 100G. The new 100G system will coexist with the current 10G system on one optical fiber, thanks to ZTE's Guard Band solution that enables these two technologies to work simultaneously.
Spanning the island of Java from West Java to East Java and connecting all major cities on the island, the Java backbone is the busiest backbone network in Indonesia, accounting for the largest total exchange capacity and the highest data growth rate.
In modernizing the network, ZTE provides Telkom Indonesia with ZXWM M920 DWDM system. The system aims to help Telkom Indonesia to build a future-proof Bearer Network (DWDM/OTN). Also, the new network will co-operate with ZTE NetNumenTM U31 NMS to build flexible, reliable, cost-effective and manageable networks that can scale to enable the deployment of 100G's new services.
