Huawei, a provider of next-generation telecom network solutions for operators, announced that it exhibited multi-vendor interoperability on DPoE ONU registration, provisioning, OSS management, software download and config file of DPoE Standalone ONU with IEEE 802.1ad tagging and DPoE Bridge ONU with transport mode.

The company showcased the DPoE 1.0 phase interoperability testing at the CableLabs (News - Alert) DPoE 1.0 interoperability event recently. This interop was the first in a series of interoperability events scheduled in 2011.

The DPoE 1.0 specification provides cable operators a standard method to provision, manage and operate Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) products by leveraging their existing back office infrastructure to deliver IP and MEF (News - Alert) based services for business and commercial applications, company officials said.

“We are pleased to have successfully demonstrated DPoE 1.0 phase interoperability testing of CableLabs,” said Charlie Chen, senior vice president of marketing and product management for Huawei (News - Alert) North America, in a statement.

“The combination of Huawei's understanding of DPoE 1.0 specification and our extensive design capabilities will provide mature, flexible, and compatible solutions for cable operators who are developing leading-edge voice, data, and multimedia services,” Chen added.

The next interoperability event for DPoE products is scheduled to begin on April 11, 2011. Huawei will continuously participate in future DPoE 1.0 interoperability events and devote itself to developing DPoE 1.0 based EPON products to meet cable operators' requirements.

Recently, Huawei and NII Holdings (News - Alert), a provider of mobile communication services in Latin America under the NEXTEL brand, announced that equipment and related services for new W-CDMA networks being developed by NII subsidiaries in Mexico and Brazil will be provided by Huawei.
