Optix OSN1800

Compact broadband backbone transmission and switching platforms bring high-performance Optical Transport Network (OTN) capabilities to the enterprise. Huawei’s OptiX 1800 WDM transport systems support both Dense and Course Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM and CWDM), providing ample bandwidth for video surveillance, data backup, and server-based multimedia applications.

Available in 1U and 2U rackmount models, offering 4 or 8 line cards supporting up to 10 GE transmission speeds, Optix 1800s are ideal for cross-connections between data centers, between Storage Area Networks (SANs), and as an edge transport system in metropolitan networks.

OptiX OSN1800 I and II


Large bandwidth

Supports 40 x 100 Gbit/s DWDM capacity, fulfilling service evolution requirements in a long term

Full service scenarios

  • Supports various services, including E1, E3, T3, FE, GE, STM-x, 10GE, 100GE, CPRI, FC, and SAN

  • Supports various service scenarios, such as fixed broadband, mobile backhaul, and leased line


Supports 2M, 1588v2, and synchronous Ethernet clocks, meeting the clock precision requirements of WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000, and LTE/LTE-A

Flexible installation

  • 1U and 2U boxes can be installed in a cabinet, on the wall, or on a pole
  • 1U, 2U, and 5U boxes can be installed in a 19/23' standard cabinet

    Low power consumption

  • Adopts natural heat dissipation and uses AC/DC power
  • Case-like design facilitates flexible deployment at any site
  • Typical 1U chassis consumes less than 25 W, which is less than the power consumption of a table lamp


    As the core architecture of the next generation transport network, T-SDN features automation, virtualization, flexibility, openness, and synergy. Through T-SDN, the OptiX OSN 1800 can realize hardware virtualization.
