JDSU expands test suite for 10 Gbps networks
JDSU released additions to its WaveReady product line of scalable optical transport solutions designed for access and metro optical networks.
Added to the portfolio are a 10 Gbps tunable transponder with forward error correction (FEC), a power balancing system and a 40-channel universal multiplexer/de-multiplexer.
The WaveReady system is designed to be a compact solution for tunable optical networks, providing automated optical gain equalization that ensures maximum network availability and reduces the need for costly maintenance.
- The WRT-852, a compact C-Band or L-Band tunable transponder with FEC, supporting OTN, SONET/SDH, Ethernet and Fibre Channel.
- The WRS-05AD1C00B, providing per-channel power balancing capabilities for tunable, amplified networks.
- The 40-channel Universal Multiplexer, featuring high-isolation and low-insertion loss in a compact platform compatible with point-to-point or OADM deployments.
“The demand for multichannel and reconfigurable 10 GigE transport is growing extremely fast due to the widespread deployment of broadband and the emergence of new bandwidth-intensive business and network applications,” said Michael McCallen, JDSU’s director of the WaveReady product line.
