After more than 20 years of rapid development, Shanghai Metro operates 16 metro lines and one maglev line, with a total length of 673 km, controls 395 stations and is recognized as the metro operator with the largest metro network. With the increase of construction scale, in recent years, Shanghai rail transport has gradually entered a new stage of network development characterized by rail network planning, construction, and operations. In 2016, Shanghai Metro began to optimize upper-layer networks of its existing Comprehensive Operation Coordination Center (COCC).Shanghai Metro’s upper-layer communication networks face many difficulties, for example:
1. The system capacity easily upgrades to the terabit level to meet service volume expansion requirements within 5 to 10 years.
2. Wavelength + ODUK + VC three physical isolation solutions ensure service transmission security and provide end-to-end bandwidth guarantees suitable for important service transmissions like ATS.
3. The network not only supports equipment- and network-level protections, but also smoothly upgrades to an ASON network to further improve service reliability.
Liu Chunjie, Chief Engineer of Shanghai Shentong Metro Group Co., Ltd, said, “Huawei has been participating in the construction of the high-speed bearer network in Shanghai Metro Lines 14, 15, and 18, indicating their industry expertise and comprehensive strength. We expect Huawei to be a leader in the next round of rail transportation construction.”
Director of Huawei Transportation Solution Unit, Frédéric Comtet mentioned: “As the global rail industry ushers in big data and cloud computing Huawei takes the lead in proposing a new generation urban rail oriented OTN powered high-speed bearer network architecture. We are grateful to Shentong for its continuous pursuit of the railway communication architecture and technology. We are able to realize the first commercial use of the OTN technology in the global urban rail industry.”
Vice President of Industry Solution Dept, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, Yuan Xilin indicated: “The world’s first commercial case of urban rail oriented OTN powered high-speed bearer network is also a herald of the rail transport network in major international cities such as Shanghai, which is developing rapidly in the direction of cloud computing, Big Data, and intelligence. Looking ahead, Huawei will continue to provide customers with the leading optical transmission network solutions, continuously innovate technologies based on customer requirements, and work with partners in the industry to promote network cloudification and digital transformation.”
During InnoTrans 2018 in Berlin, Germany, Huawei's exhibition area is located at Hall 7.1b of Messe Berlin.
