Building a Network to Cope with the Demands of Big Data Transmission

In all eras, supporting research and education is key to improving national competitiveness. The digital era is no different. To this end, a National Research and Education Network (NREN) can effectively narrow the digital divide, strengthen communication and collaboration between educational and research institutions, promote resource sharing, and comprehensively improve the national level of research and education.

However building an NREN today is no easy task and it faces a range of serious challenges, from insufficient bandwidth to low reliability, and complex management. As the world turns digital an ultra-broadband, elastic, and intelligent NREN is now no longer just one option on the table — it's a necessity.

The Huawei NREN Solution uses next generation, intelligent routers with simplified and elastic architecture, intelligent ultra-broadband connections, and high availability at the IP layer. Single-slot capacity reaches 14.4 Tbit/s — more than 150% of the industry standard. A unique Routing Optimization Algorithm based on Matrix (ROAM) implements intelligent traffic steering and optimization, improving network utilization by 20%. The optical transport layer uses E2E Multi-Service Optical Transport Network (MS-OTN) architecture to carry multiple services, such as PKT, SDH and OTN. Single-slot capacity reaches 1 Tbit/s, and port-level L1 encryption is supported. Single-fiber capacity exceeds 96 Tbit/s, meeting growing requirements for large data transmission. In short, the Huawei NREN Solution helps to build an ultra-broadband, elastic, and intelligent network to satisfy any requirements for network connections and service delivery.

Together with industry partners, Huawei works with governments and educational institutions around the world to build future-oriented NRENs. Huawei helped build an NREN exceeding 100G for Brazil, for example: the Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa (RNP). In addition, Huawei helped to construct the China Education and Research Network (CERNET) and has worked on many other NREN projects in the UAE, Thailand, France, Italy, Mexico, and more.
