Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 Completes SAN Interoperability Tests at EANTC

Jul 17, 2020

[Shenzhen, China, July 17, 2020] Huawei OptiXtrans DC908, an intelligent data center interconnect (DCI) product, was successfully awarded Storage Area Networks (SAN) certification by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) for its specialism in DCI scenarios and industry-leading capacity.

SAN certification is specifically for storage networks and is mandatory for vendors to enter the DCI market. It comprehensively tests the compatibility, reliability, and stability of storage network devices to ensure uninterrupted service. Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 successfully gained certification after passing all of the strict interoperability test cases designed by EANTC, which are based on real-world DCI service scenarios.

As big data, cloud computing, and mobile Internet services cause inter-DC traffic to increase sharply, more and more financial organizations, OTTs, ISPs, and governments around the globe are choosing to build their own DCI networks that deliver higher speed, stability, and security, supporting cheaper and faster rollout of new services.

Kim Jin, President of Huawei Enterprise Transmission & Access Domain said, "EANTC's certificate is in recognition of Huawei's WDM product innovation. The certificate confirms superior quality of the Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 in DCI scenarios as an integrated, high speed, low latency, and highly available solution to help more customers build an all-optical network base towards digitalization and business success."

Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 recently won the Best of Show Award at Interop Tokyo 2020 and is the only DCI product to receive this honor. Huawei OptiXtrans DC908 is built on more than 20 years of optical field experience and helps customers cope with challenges brought by massive data transmission in the cloud era. It offers twice the stability of industry’s average performance. By implementing port-level encryption at the physical layer and supporting 50 ms protection switching, it can ensure service continuity. Utilizing built-in fiber channel (FC) interfaces to maximize the synergy between storage and optical transmission, the product thereby reduces the latency of the active-active application in 100 km to less than 1 ms for intra-city disaster recovery. Moreover, it enables effortless zero-touch deployment with network-level WebGUI. Leveraging simplified design to cut the number of optical-layer fiber connections by more than 90%, the product greatly reduces footprint and simplifies O&M.
