EFFECT Photonics develops auto wavelength tuning for efficient DWDM network deployment
ROME, 25 September 2018.
Following on from announcing the narrow tunable Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) SFP+ optical transceiver using their optical ‘System-on-Chip’ PIC technology, EFFECT IS demonstrating their auto wavelength tuning feature at ECOC 2018 (Rome) in their private customer suite.
The EFFECT DWDM optical transceiver commences a sequence of wavelength tuning to establish a link with a transceiver at the opposite end of the link. This functionality is host-independent as the protocol is implemented within the optical transceiver.
Auto wavelength tuning simplifies network provisioning and deployment, which is especially useful for large-scale roll-outs of existing and next-generation mobile networks. It also significantly reduces the operational expenditure during the deployment of remote PHY network infrastructure.
The development of auto wavelength tuning is a result of customer feedback and the need to streamline the deployment and provisioning of new network infrastructure using tunable technology. This additional feature is also useful for system diagnostics and optimising the link performance for communications equipment located in different environments.
Features of the system include:
– Compatible with 50/100 GHz and flexible grid spaced networks
– Suitable for 10Gbps and 25Gbps
– Distances of 40km or 80km
– Up to 40 bi-directional channels
