Metro-Haul Reaches Japan

 In 2019, News
METRO-HAUL’s impact continues to spread. A recent press release from NTT reports on “NTT and Telefónica start PoC on Open Optical and Packet Transport technologies within Telecom Infra Project.”

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT; Headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Jun Sawada) and Telefónica announced that they have conducted a successful PoC on Open Optical and Packet transport technologies at the SDN NFV World Congress 2019 in The Hague.

The goal is to implement open and commoditized networks to achieve wide scale economy for some components of the CANDI architecture and create an open market for disaggregated elements, both IP and optical.

The press release names several METRO-HAUL partners (ADVA, Infinera, and Telefónica) participating with NTT in this proof of concept and explicitly calls out METRO-HAUL as “the EU funded project Metro-Haul provided implementation and support in the field of optical disaggregation.”
