China Telecom and Huawei’s CloudFAN Slicing Solution Wins the Outstanding Innovation Team Award at PT Expo China 2017

Beijing, September 27 (CWW) – At the PT Expo China 2017, China Telecom’s Shanghai Branch, the Shanghai Research Institute of China Telecom, and Huawei received the annual Outstanding Technology Innovation Team award in the optical communication field. This award was received for a new PON OLT that supports flexible network slicing and its applications.

PT Expo China is hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade. It is China’s largest exhibition and conference in the information communications field. In 2017, the Expo held its annual award selection, with an award selection committee composed of leading experts from the People’s Posts and Telecommunications News (PPTN), the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), academic institutions, and China Telecom, China Mobile, and China Unicom and their research institutes. These awards are authoritative in the communications industry.

In 2016, China Telecom’s Shanghai Branch, a leading operator in broadband network construction, set a goal to implement giga-to-the-home access and create the first giga city within 3 years. It is estimated that more than 5000 communities will have gigabit access by the end of this year. China Telecom’s Shanghai Branch has different broadband user groups, including high-value enterprise leased line customers, common home users, and common campus users. Trends connected to gigabit broadband development, such as emergence of new service types, integrated service bearing, and intelligent operation, require that networks have the features of service isolation, flexible expansion, and fast service provisioning. Network operators must resolve problems due to increased user numbers, such as insufficient equipment room space and increased power consumption. To address these challenges, China Telecom’s Shanghai Branch, the Shanghai Research Institute of China Telecom, and Huawei jointly set up an innovation team to conduct in-depth research on, and development and application of, network slicing.
