China Unicom trials Adva’s G.metro technology for mobile fronthaul

Created November 8, 2016

Adva Optical Networking (“Adva”) has announced 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 fibre link between head-end and tail-end equipment, reducing the need for wavelength configuration and management. By leveraging autonomous transponders, this technique dramatically reduces cost and complexity for metro access network applications. China Unicom showcased the device to customers at a laboratory demonstration in Beijing.
