Ethio Telecom has announced that ZTE is to construct its 100G DWDM/OTN backbone transmission network in western and southern Ethiopia.

Ethio Telecom needed to deploy a large-capacity national transmission backbone network to meet high-bandwidth transmission requirements. ZTE says the 100G DWDM/OTN will increase capacity 10-fold and help Ethio Telecom to develop its 3G, LTE and broadband services.

“The transmission backbone network will be built to achieve a large-capacity OTN cross, optical network intelligent scheduling and ultra-long distance transmission,” a ZTE statement read.
