    Data Center Interconnect

    Huawei OptiXtrans DC908, Building a Stable and Reliable Data Highway

DCI: Enabling Data Center Connections

According to data insight provider GlobalData, the global cloud ecosystem is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 25.3%, reaching US$720 billion in 2022. Critical to such growth, Data Center Interconnect (DCI) serves as the key infrastructure connecting data centers.

However, DCI solutions are about far more than just connection capacity. Additional features such as simplified Operations and Maintenance (O&M), intelligence, and security are now also necessities, not extras, in an increasingly complicated world. Such features are integral to Huawei DCI solutions.


  • ISP

    ISP/Hyper OTT

News and Cases


  • Highest performance: 88T/fiber

    Maximum capacity: 88T/fiber compared to the industry average of 60T/fiber, 6.4T/U compared to 3.6T/U, and the lowest per-bit cost in the industry.

    Lowest power consumption: 0.13 W/G compared to 0.2 W/G, with power consumption 35% lower than the industry average.

  • Deployment within eight minutes

    Plug and play: Eliminates the need for network planning with automatic deployment that can be carried out by anyone.

    Simplified connections: Integrated design reduces over 90% of internal fiber connections at the optical layer.
