Balancing Performance, Flexibility, and Scalability in Optical Networks
News Release from:
20 March 2012
The availability of Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) supporting 100 Gb/s and 400 Gb/s data rates enables network operators to significantly increase bandwidth capacity in DWDM optical networks with substantial CAPEX and OPEX savings. Moving to such higher data rates, however, requires a shift from the continuing trend of implementing narrower optical channel spacing given that data rates beyond 100 Gb/s cannot fit within a 50 GHz channel.
To meet the increasing demands of telecom, CATV and Enterprise operators for lower cost-per-bit transmission capabilities, systems equipment OEMs need technology that can allocate bandwidth
flexibly and dynamically to meet evolving performance and capacity needs without requiring new equipment deployments. In this way, systems equipment OEMs can enable their customers to maximize efficiency as well as introduce new services and capabilities that give them a competitive edge.
