[Dubai, UAE, October 13, 2023] Throughout UBBF 2023, Richard Jin, President of Huawei Optical Enterprise Product Line, delivered a keynote speech entitled “Deliver F5.5G to Actuality: Milestones on Our Technique to Clever World”. Within the speech, Richard proposed the idea of three-phase community building for the primary time. Particularly, there are three driving forces for community improvement, that’s, video (100Mbps community), expertise (1Gbps community), and intelligence (10Gbps community). In opposition to this backdrop, Huawei launched the F5.5G-oriented three-phase all-optical goal community structure — all-optical protection for 100Mbps dwelling broadband, all-optical connections extending 1Gbps to every room, and all-optical computing for 10Gbps In every single place. The three-phase building of the all-optical goal community can meet the community connection necessities of scorching providers in every part, bringing F5.5G into actuality and striding in the direction of an clever world.

Part 1: Video-Pushed, All-Optical Protection for 100Mbps Dwelling Broadband
With the continual enchancment of video decision and the fast popularization of video interplay and immersive XR, the bandwidth is upgraded from 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps. On this part, HD video and video interplay grow to be the main driving power to appreciate the purpose of constructing an all-optical community with a 100 Mbps dwelling broadband price. Operators want to completely transfer in the direction of FMC, and change cooper strains and cables with FTTH all-optical community. Serialized AirPON can speed up FTTH building and help GPON and 10G PON compatibility, enabling fast provision of gigabit providers in hotspot areas. In the meantime, operators must deploy OTN to metro aggregation layer, and construct 3D-mesh 400G prepared spine networks, supporting non-blocking bandwidth and nil video lagging. Typical technological improvements on this part embody FlexPON, DQ ODN, and high-performance 400G.
Part 2: Expertise-Pushed, All-Optical Connections Extending 1Gbps to Rooms
With more and more diversified digital purposes, fibers are prolonged from residing rooms to bedrooms, research, and kitchens, enabling click-and-start purposes and delivering an immersive community expertise. All these developments pose larger necessities on community protection, bandwidth, latency, and roaming. On this part, customers are prepared to pay for a extra premium dwelling community expertise. Subsequently, Finish-to-end (E2E) service expertise assurance turns into the important thing to reaching the purpose of all-optical connections and 1 Gbps extending to every room. Operators must improve 10G PON to completely ship gigabit providers, introduce fiber-to-the-room (FTTR), metro 100G OTN to CO, spine 400G non-blocking ultra-broadband. Typical technological improvements on this part are FTTR, metro pooling WDM, and the clever community administration and management system.
Part 3: Intelligence-Pushed, All-Optical Computing for 10Gbps In every single place
AI accelerates content material manufacturing and promotes the clever transformation of industries. To deal with site visitors surges and migration of large information to the cloud, a computing-centric community is required to offer bus-level connection capabilities. Just like the CPU, bus, and equipment of a pc, the computing energy and storage of the information middle (DC) must change info with end-users in actual time by means of a high-performance community to attain the purpose of all-optical computing for 10Gbps In every single place.
On this part, the FTTR-based all-optical dwelling bus helps connect-and-play of IoT units and integrates connection, sensing, computing, and storage capabilities for 10Gbps all through the home. As well as, the all-optical cloud bus primarily based on 50G PON and 800G OTN implements all-optical one-hop user-DC or DC-DC connections. Typical technological improvements on this part embody 50G PON, metro OTN utterly to CO, and spine 800G. As well as, OTN must be designed for DC eventualities. Upon this, Huawei launched Kepler, the next-generation OTN platform, delivering greater than 100T single-subrack switching capability. Leveraging new supplies and constructions, Kepler reduces energy consumption per Gbit by 65%, and the ability utilization effectiveness (PUE) to 1.2. It additionally offers clever computing items to comprehensively enhance connection effectivity.
F5.5G-oriented three-phase all-optical goal community structure
The three-phase all-optical goal community can guarantee parallel evolution and easy improve from F5G to F5.5G. In response to Richard, “Operators want probably the most applicable all-optical goal community building resolution in several improvement phases. To date, 100Mbps has modified the content material, 1Gbps is altering the broadband expertise, and 10Gbps will change society. Let’s work collectively to carry F5.5G into actuality and stride in the direction of an clever world.”
