VIAVI: new market opportunities in 5G commercialization
Sha Huijun, SE Director Greater China of VIAVI, was interviewed by CIOE team at the 22nd China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE 2020) onsite and shared us the VIAVI's latest test solutions and new opportunites in 5G industry.
VIAVI is one of the world's leading and largest end-to-end solution companies for communication testing. Based on the Chinese market for decades, the company has been helping the hottest 5G construction in China through long-term accumulation and investment, providing a full range of 5G end-to-end test solutions from wireless to wireline bearer to core network, including the R&D, deployment, operation and maintenance of 5G.
VIAVI has the deep expertise to deliver unparalleled physical and virtual network intelligence to help service providers, enterprises and their ecosystems deploy, maintain, optimize and grow the world's most complex and robust networks. As a leader in testing, VIAVI has successful collaboration experience with communications companies, with core competencies in network testing and service support.
At CIOE 2020, VIAVI launched several new test solutions divided into 4 areas in order to cope with the continuous development of 5G industry.
High-speed interconnection test for next-generation networks: open coherent testing for high-speed and next-generation high-speed interfaces 100G PAM-4 test solutions, the latter solution reached 24 hours of operation in the 100G PAM-4 link appears zero error code performance, to provide the industry with the standard test original interface.
Data center and enterprise network optimization verification test: the large number of fiber deployments and connectors used in construction for the most important foundation in big data. We have a set of low-cost solutions for automatic fiber cleaning and inspection, handheld automatic verification of fiber insertion loss, etc., to help the deployment of new infrastructure.
5G bearer network SPN (Flex-E) test: test corresponding solutions for 5G deployment, operation and maintenance. Has a highly integrated test platform from deployment to operation, maintenance and fault location, covering the entire cycle of 5G forward transmission to return transmission. At the same time, there is a set of early warning test system for the physical performance of the fiber, so as to support 5G bearer network.
Optical layer test of fiber device module boards: test solutions for 5G patch cords and other optical devices in the production process.
As an inseparable part of the industry chain, VIAVI has witnessed the process of 5G industry from the beginning of technical research to the current large-scale deployment. Mr. Sha believes that the next 2 to 3 years as the whole industry continues to develop, the network will expand dramatically, and the chip industry, optical device industry, optical module industry, and system manufacturers will all usher in huge business opportunities. And due to the rapid release of market capacity, there are many opportunities for test instrument vendors in R&D, production or later deployment phase. Only by seizing the current opportunity and quickly launching products that meet market demands can bring greater value to the company.
At the end of the interview, Mr. Sha said "VIAVI, as an old friend of CIOE, has been exhibiting in this industry event every year. Light is an indispensable part of human life, communication based on light as the medium of transmission will gradually penetrate into more detailed scenarios. I believe that with the continuous investment in 5G and big data, CIOE will get a long-term development with the popularity of optoelectroinc industry. As a member of the industry, VIAVI will accompany CIOE to do better together!"
