BARCELONE, Espagne, 6 juillet 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Lors du NGON WDM forum 2022 qui s’est tenu récemment, WOM, opérateur du Chili, a partagé son plan stratégique et sa vision de la construction de réseaux optiques avec les partenaires du secteur et les médias. WOM a également fourni des témoignages sur la solution de réseau autonome (ADN) tout optique de Huawei.

Lors de ce forum, Edison Alfaro Leon, directeur du département de réseau principal et de réseau de transport de WOM, Chili, a prononcé un discours introductif intitulé « WOM’ s Next Generation Optical Autonomous Network ». Edison a déclaré que WOM travaillerait avec Huawei pour construire un réseau optique intelligent et automatisé dans tout le Chili, pour faire entrer plusieurs industries du pays dans la nouvelle ère des réseaux optiques.

Après seulement quelques années de développement, WOM compte plus de 80 centres de service client et 7 millions d’abonnés au Chili. Grâce à une philosophie commerciale axée sur le client, WOM s’est construit une solide réputation qui l’a propulsé à la première place du Customer Experience PXI Ranking de 2019 à 2021. Edison considère que, si l’infrastructure réseau de WOM a la croissance la plus rapide du Chili, il est difficile de déployer un réseau optique du nord au sud à cause de l’environnement géographique complexe du pays.

Le territoire du Chili s’étend sur 38 latitudes, avec des climats différents et un terrain complexe du nord au sud. Par conséquent, pour utiliser au mieux les ressources en fibre optique, WOM présentera les solutions d’interconnexion optique (OXC) et 400G de Huawei pour déployer des réseaux de transport optique (OTN) sur les réseaux de zone urbaine (MAN).

Edison a également souligné deux orientations stratégiques de WOM pour sa collaboration avec Huawei, en se concentrant sur l’efficacité des opérations d’exploitation et de maintenance de réseau optique. En présentant la solution ADN tout optique de Huawei, le composant principal Huawei iMaster Network Cloud Engine (NCE) permettra une toute nouvelle expérience d’exploitation et de maintenance de réseau optique.

Pour la stratégie visant à améliorer l’efficacité des opérations d’exploitation et de maintenance de réseau optique, Huawei iMaster NCE pourra être utile à certains égards. Tout d’abord, la prédiction de sous-intégrité du réseau optique identifie la détérioration des performances de la fibre avec une précision de 95 %. Ensuite, la combinaison des cartes EOTDR et GIS réduit la durée de localisation de plusieurs heures à quelques minutes. L’assurance des ressources réseaux optiques réduit le délai de commercialisation des services de plusieurs semaines à un jour. La fonction d’assurance de l’intégrité du réseau optique transforme la surveillance manuelle en surveillance visuelle en temps réel. En outre, la précision de la détection des risques SRLG dépasse 90 %, ce qui réduit les risques de défaillances de co-câblages.

Dans le cadre de la stratégie de monétisation de la qualité du réseau optique, Huawei iMaster NCE contribuera à améliorer la qualité du réseau optique et à augmenter les recettes. Tout d’abord, la durée de provisionnement de services est réduite de plusieurs semaines à quelques minutes. Deuxièmement, la capacité de bande passante à la demande (BoD) fournit la solution optimale avec une bande passante élevée et de faibles coûts pour divers secteurs d’activité au Chili. Troisièmement, la carte de latence fournit une latence visualisée et commercialisable. Quatrièmement, l’analyse des SLA aidera WOM à fournir une garantie de SLA déterministe aux clients. Enfin, l’assurance de disponibilité identifie et visualise les risques liés aux services, garantissant ainsi la stabilité des services.

Avec le développement rapide de l’Amérique latine, un nouveau centre numérique sera certainement créé en Amérique du Sud. Selon Edison, WOM renforcera sa coopération avec Huawei pour développer des réseaux optiques vers l’intelligence et l’automatisation, et fera de l’ADN de nouvelle génération la base de la transformation numérique de divers secteurs au Chili.

WOM of Chile and Huawei Jointly Usher In the ADN Era of Optical Networks

BARCELONA, Spain, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In the recently held 2022 NGON WDM forum, WOM, a carrier from Chile, shared its strategic plan and vision for optical network construction with industry partners and the media. WOM also provided testimonials about Huawei’s all-optical autonomous driving network (ADN) solution.

At the forum, Edison Alfaro Leon, director of the Network Planning Department of WOM, Chile, delivered a keynote speech entitled “WOM’ s Next Generation Optical Autonomous Network”. Edison stated that WOM would work with Huawei to build an intelligent and automated optical network across Chile, leading various industries in Chile into the new optical network era.

WOM boasts of more than 80 customer service centers and 7 million subscribers in Chile after just a few years of development. According to Edison, although WOM has the fastest-growing network infrastructure in Chile, it is not easy to deploy an optical network from the north to the south due to Chile’s complex geographical environment.

Chile has a territory spanning 38 latitudes with multiple climates and complex terrain from the north to the south. Therefore, to make the best use of optical fiber resources, WOM will introduce Huawei’s optical cross-connect (OXC) and 400G solutions to deploy optical transport networks (OTNs) on the metropolitan area networks (MANs).

Edison also pointed out two strategic directions of WOM for collaborating with Huawei, focusing on optical network O&M efficiency. By introducing Huawei’s all-optical ADN solution, the core component Huawei iMaster Network Cloud Engine (NCE) will enable brand-new optical network O&M experience.

For the strategy of improving optical network O&M efficiency, Huawei iMaster NCE will help in certain aspects. First, the optical network sub-health prediction identifies fiber performance deterioration with an accuracy of 95%. Second, the combination of EOTDR and GIS maps shortens the locating duration from hours to minutes. The optical network resource assurance shortens the service TTM from weeks to one day. The optical network health assurance feature transforms the manual monitoring to visualized real-time monitoring. In addition, the accuracy of shared risk link group (SRLG) risk detection exceeds 90%, which will reduce the risks of co-cable faults.

For the optical network quality monetization strategy, Huawei iMaster NCE will help to improve optical network quality and increase revenue. First, the service provisioning duration will be shortened from weeks to minutes. Second, the bandwidth on demand (BoD) capability provides the optimal solution with high bandwidth and low costs for various industries in Chile. Third, the latency map will provide visualized and marketable latency. Fourth, SLA analysis will help WOM provide deterministic SLA assurance for customers. Fifth, the availability assurance identifies and visualizes service risks, ensuring service stability.

With the rapid development of Latin America, a new digital center will certainly be established in South America. According to Edison, WOM will deepen cooperation with Huawei to develop optical networks towards intelligence and automation, and make the next-generation ADN the foundation for the digital transformation of various industries in Chile.
