NEC Drives Expansion of most Optical Networks

TOKYO, Sep 15, 2022 – (JCN Newswire) – NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) is driving expansion of most Optical Networks with the introduction of its “SpectralWave WX Series,” a lineup of open specifications-compliant, open optical transport products. The lineup is made predicated on standards defined by Open ROADM and Telecom Infra Project’s (TIP) Phoenix initiative. The push for several Optical Networks is really a marked shift in transport networks, that have conventionally required both optical and electrical technologies, but will undoubtedly be simplified to only optical transmission technology from end-to-end later on. Initially, four products will undoubtedly be released on October 1, 2022.

Summary of the SpectralWave WX Series

NEC envisions All Optical Networks as a next-generation, green infrastructure that may result in the realization of digital twins, social transformation and the creation of new services and industries. Through the provision of the products, NEC can help deploy transport networks with large capacity, low latency and multiple connections, and also advanced security, robustness and power-saving.

Traditionally, transport networks have already been built by equipment from exactly the same vendor as vertical integration models. However, NEC’s new open optical transmission devices support multi-vendor configurations, allowing customers to procure and combine equipment from multiple vendors relative to their needs.

The compliance with open specifications such as for example Open ROADM and TIP’s Phoenix enable the unit to aid configurations that hook up to the event blocks of APN-T, APN-G and APN-I as defined by Open APN, and under examination by the IOWN Global Forum(1).

Furthermore, NEC has well-established experience and know-how in large-scale carrier networks to supply system integration in multi-vendor environments using open optical transmission devices from the development to the operational phases.

“NEC aims to advertise the products to telecommunications carriers, energy companies and data center operators across the world,” said Sou Satou, Senior Director, Network Solutions Business Division, NEC Corporation. “In the years ahead, NEC will continue steadily to donate to the creation and expansion of open optical networks, looking to acquire 25% into the future optical transport market by giving products which have grown in capacity from the existing 400G to 800G and equipment that supports longer distances.”

The products were developed within a capital and business alliance formed between NEC and NIPPON TELEGRAPH AND TELEPHONE CORPORATION (NTT, Hq: Chiyoda-ku Tokyo; President & CEO: Akira Shimada) in June 2020. Beneath the agreement, the firms conduct joint research and development and globally provide ICT products that utilize innovative optical and wireless technologies(2).
