Optelian, a designer and manufacturer of optical transport systems, announced the availability of automatic power balancing for DWDM networks, which enables automatic power measurement and adjustment. With this new capability, optical power levels are continuously and automatically measured and adjusted at all network nodes without any technician involvement. Automatic power balancing is implemented using Optelian’s RDM-2×1 wavelength selective switch together with the OCM-40 optical channel monitor. It can be used with any vendor’s DWDM system, including Optelian’s own LightGAIN system.
