On October 26, at the Asian optical fiber communication and Optoelectronics International Conference (ACP / ipoc2020) held in Beijing, Wang Libiao, vice president of transmission and access product line of Huawei Technology Co., Ltd., issued the theme report of F5G progress and prospect. In his speech, he introduced the current progress of F5G international standards, shared the innovative applications of F5G in global families, parks, data centers, smart cities and other fields, and called for strengthening the close cooperation between industry, University and research to jointly build F5G all-optical network and release the new momentum of digital economy.

F5G all-optical network releases the new momentum of digital economy, and the four major commercial innovations have broad application prospects

Progress of F5G standard: there are 51 member units in the world, and R1 standard has been released

Wang Libiao pointed out that the optical network technology has developed to the fifth generation. The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has made a comprehensive exposition on the intergenerational F5G: with 10gpon, WiFi 6, 200g, OTN and OXC as the representative technologies, the fifth generation fixed network technology F5G, with Gigabit broadband connection, Tbit level transport capacity and 5g, helps the cloud computing power and AI intelligence, and jointly enables the digitization of the industry, Is the cornerstone of the digital economy.

Since its establishment in early December 2019, f5gisg has flourished and attracted the active participation of many industrial partners, including 51 members from operators, equipment manufacturers, vertical industries and research institutions.

Not long ago, at the bbwf2020 online f5gpanel meeting, Luca pesando, chairman of etsiisgf5g, grandly released F5G release 1.0: F5G intergenerational definition, F5G white paper and f5gusecaser1 with 14 use cases. Among them, F5G intergenerational definition formally summarizes the key features of f1g ~ F5G intergenerational by analyzing and summarizing the intergenerational evolution of resident network, access network, transmission and aggregation network and end-to-end all-optical network, and defines F5G intergenerational with three features such as efbb (Super bandwidth), FFC (all-optical connection) and GRE (extreme experience).

F5G’s four major business innovations have broad application prospects

“Connecting everything with light” is the vision of F5G. At present, a large number of enterprises around the world are actively exploring this aspect. Using the characteristics of large bandwidth, low delay and high reliability of optical fiber, F5G reflects its unique value in many emerging communication scenarios. Judging from the current business progress, the following four applications will first reflect value:

1. Smart home: lay the optical fiber to each room, interconnect with the home gateway through the deployment of edge ont, combine the dual band Wi Fi to ensure the flexibility of use, realize the full coverage of true Gigabit, support the “home economy” such as remote office, cloud entertainment, WiFi elderly care, and incubate webcast.

2. Smart Park: for the park scenarios of enterprises, education, electric power, transportation, hotels, medical and other industries, make use of the advantages of multi service carrying and passive long-distance of optical network to reconstruct the local area network of the park, sink the optical fiber to the access point, reduce the end generic cabling, meet the demands of high bandwidth and low delay of business, and save 80% of equipment space.

3. All optical data center: with the increase of business volume, both inside and outside the data center will face massive bandwidth growth. Using the latest 800g, OXC and other optical network technologies can greatly improve the efficiency of data transportation, improve server utilization and computing power, and create a green and efficient computing network.

4. All optical City: build a 1ms delay circle with optical network, build an all-optical base of the city, ensure data transmission with the lowest delay and the highest reliability, realize information integration and sharing, open up the physical world and digital world, and become the artery of smart city.

Continue to explore around the three major technical routes, and closely cooperate with industry, University and research to form technology spillover

At present, the innovation and commercialization of F5G has been highly concerned by the global optical network industry. Looking forward to the possible evolution direction of the next generation in the future, it will continue to evolve along the three dimensions of FFC (all-optical connection), efbb (enhanced fixed network broadband) and GRE (guaranteed experience), and study key technologies such as 50gpon, WiFi 7 and 800g backbone optical transmission. The domestic industry and academia have excellent practical environment and theoretical basis. By strengthening the close cooperation between industry, University and research, it can accelerate the maturity of these key technologies, and is likely to form technology spillover, extend to the market outside network communication, and open up a new application market, such as optical sensing, interstellar optical communication, industrial optical network, etc, Step by step from F5G’s fibre to everywhere to opticalto everything.

International Conference on Asian optical fiber communication and Optoelectronics

Asia Communications and Photonics Conference and Exhibition (ACP) is the largest optical communication, photonics and related technology summit in the Asia Pacific region. The conference dates back to 2001 and is held once a year. It is jointly sponsored by China Optical Society, China communication society, OSA, SPIE and IEEE. At present, ACP has developed into the most important optoelectronic optical communication conference in the Asia Pacific region. The content of the conference will extend from the traditional optical communication field to all fields of the optoelectronic industry. It is an Expo and international conference with the combination of science and commerce, high-level, high-quality and high-tech level.

Acp2020 was jointly held with the International Conference on information photons and optical communications (ipoc), hosted by Beijing University of Posts and telecommunications, and held in Beijing from October 24 to 27, 2020.
