Question:
What are the differences between major features of 1600G, 320G V300R003, 320G V300R004, and 6100 V100R003?
Analysis:
From a wide perspective, WDM products can be classified into long-haul (LH) DWDM products and metro WDM products. LH DWDM products include 320G V300R003, 320G V300R004, and 1600G, and metro WDM products include metro 6100 V100R003. All these products are developed on the 1600G product platform. Therefore, they are compatible in boards and functions. In future, their software platforms will be independent and their points of focus will vary depending on market positioning.
Product 320G V300R003 is developed on the 1600G platform. The product uses the major boards of the earlier 320G product and inherits the functions and features of the earlier 320G product. It is used as the transition of the earlier 320G product and 400G system and for consumption of inventory materials. Therefore, it is not recommended. Naturally speaking, 320G V300R004 is the same as the 400G system. It has the same features as the 400G system. The only difference lies in that 320G V300R004 uses the 32-wavelength system. 320G V300R004 is intended for users who have requirements on application scales on networks.

Alarm acknowledgment mechanisms supported by BWS 320G and 1600G
The 4.0 platform and 5.0 platform have supported the alarm acknowledgement mechanisms since 4.08.04.20P03 and 5.08.03.10 respectively.

NEs supporting the alarm acknowledgment mechanism on 320G and 1600G devices
Question: If alarms are generated, NEs of earlier versions report the alarms to the NMS only for three consecutive times regardless of whether the NMS receives the alarms or not. In the latest version, NEs establish an alarm acknowledgment mechanism with the NMS. Therefore, when alarms are generated, the NEs continuously report the alarms to the NMS until they receive acknowledgment information from the NMS. For 4.0 and 5.0 platforms, which NEs on 320G and 1600G devices support the alarm acknowledgement mechanism? Answer: On the 4.0 platform, NEs support the alarm acknowledgement mechanisms since 4.08.04.20P03. On the 5.0 platform, NEs support the alarm acknowledgement mechanisms since 5.08.03.10.
