Utilizes Self-Tuning Transponders to

Radically Reduce Complexity and Cost

Beijing, China. November 3, 2016.
ADVA Optical Networking announced today that China Unicom has conducted a
successful field trial of its G.metro(WDM-PON)technology in an advanced
fronthaul network. The wavelength-agnostic prototype uses a single
bidirectional fiber link between head-end and tail-end equipment, reducing
the requirement for wavelength configuration and management. By leveraging
autonomous transponders, this innovative technique dramatically reduces cost
and complexity for metro access network applications, including mobile
fronthaul/backhaul, fixed broadband access and enterprise networks. After
successfully evaluating ADVA Optical Networking's G.metro technology, China
Unicom showcased the device to customers at a laboratory demonstration in

"Due to booming demand for mobile data, it's become essential that we find
innovative ways to increase capacity. Converged metro-access networks are key
to this, but so are reducing complexity and improving operational efficiency.
That's what ADVA Optical Networking's strategy is able to deliver," said
Guangquan Wang, editor, G.metro recommendation and director, network
technology research institute, China Unicom. "With this field trial and lab
demo, we've shown how to achieve these efficiencies and ensure low-latency
performance. During the trial, the prototype was installed in one of our
central offices in Tianjin to replace the transmission link of one of our
working LTE stations. The results showed that the new technology integrated
seamlessly with our current wireless equipment and had no impact on services

The demonstration revealed how this innovative new architecture significantly
increases fiber capacity in access systems. ADVA Optical Networking's
prototype technology, which is defined by the ITU-T G.metro standard,
directly distributes DWDM wavelengths to remote radio units, base stations,
desktops or end users. This enables up to 40 DWDM wavelength channels with a
grid of 100GHz. Each channel is able to transmit data at 10Gbit/s over a 20km
fiber distance without optical amplification. With a centralized wavelength
locker at the head-end, cost and complexity at the tail-end are significantly
reduced. This enhanced efficiency will be crucial for converged metro-access
and for 5G networks in the near future. The prototype also proved to be fully
compatible with current commercial wireless technology, paving the way for
imminent real-world deployment.

"Today's service providers are facing an unprecedented challenge. Keeping pace
with ever-increasing mobile data demand is simply impossible without a
fundamental change to network architecture," commented Michael Eiselt,
director, advanced technology, ADVA Optical Networking. "This successful
proof-of-concept shows that our innovation in G.metro technology is the
answer. After five years of continuous development, we've demonstrated the
feasibility and reliability of the autonomous wavelength tuning concept.
We've shown how it works in a live network to significantly reduce the
overall cost of data transport. Now that our prototype has been trialed
successfully with zero errors, G.metro technology has moved a big step closer
to real-world deployment."
