Aurora upgrades CWDM solution
Aurora Networks has debuted its improved CWDM Ethernet transport solution with Smart Media Converter technology, which allows cable operators to deliver Ethernet over a shared optical access network at speeds up to 1,000 Mbps.
The new FastE and GigE service modules (MC2701B and MC2710B) fit into the current two-rack unit (2RU) Smart Media Converter chassis and the new patent-pending CPE enclosure chassis, the CH1202B.
Aurora's portfolio supports up to 10 CWDM wavelengths and 40 DWDM wavelengths over 250 kilometers, and it allows up to 320 dedicated TDM FastE channels to be carried over a single fiber, the company said. In addition to FastE and GigE transport, the WDM transport supports OC-3, OC-12 and OC-48 data rates.
