Recently, NGON 2023 & Huawei Optical Innovation Forum 2023 were held in Cannes, France. The event brought together Huawei, global carriers, and analysts to discuss the opportunities and challenges faced by the industry and share technological innovations and solution applications updates. During the conference, Dr. Christopher Janz, Technical Vice President of Huawei Optical Systems Competency Center, delivered a keynote speech and introduced the new architecture and vision of Huawei iMaster NCE T-AUTO to the industry, aiming to lead the direction of optical network automation.

Christopher Janz discussed the ongoing evolution of WDM networks, emphasizing the importance of meeting distinct and deterministic SLA requirements, especially when new services such as data center interconnection and enterprise cloudification are growing rapidly. In this new phase of service development, users are concerned about both WDM bandwidth and latency, rather than just bandwidth alone. Data center interconnection serves as a prime example of this trend, with the latency between AZs within a region being less than 1 ms and the latency between regions being less than 10 ms. With the digital cloudification and interconnection of medium- and large-sized enterprises, WDM networks are transforming from basic connection networks to service networks. Bandwidth and availability have become the core requirements of enterprise users.

Optical network development is currently facing three major challenges.

To overcome these challenges, the Huawei iMaster NCE optical developed the innovative T-AUTO vision. Transport Digital Map serves as the foundation, upon that, capabilities such as Agile Service Routing, Ultimate SLA Guaranteed, and Time-Saving Ticket Journey enhance optical network automation level. Meanwhile, together with "Open to NaaS", they enable WDM infrastructure networks to better meet the diversified service requirements in the new era, helping carriers improve efficiency and increase revenue.

Concluding his keynote speech, Christopher noted that in order to achieve high-quality development, it is important to support adaptability of network supply structures to application demands. Huawei's new iMaster NCE T-AUTO vision is designed to anchor the changes of key requirements in optical network evolution from basic networks to high-quality service networks, and is set to become the driving force behind optical NaaS and automation innovation. This revolutionary vision will facilitate transformation in quality and efficiency and guide the planning of a new blueprint for the evolution of all-optical transport networks.
