Optelian, a designer and manufacturer of optical transport systems, says its LightGAIN optical networking platform now has 80-channel DWDM capacity. This capacity is supported using 50 GHz-spaced 80-channel multiplexers, two- and four-degree ROADMs, optical channel monitors, higher-powered optical fiber amplifiers, high linearity fiber Bragg grating dispersion compensation modules and tunable DWDM transponders. LightGAIN’s modularity allows network operators to start with a 40-channel system, says Optelian, then grow to 80 channels by simply adding another 40-channel multiplexer, without disrupting traffic on existing channels. This new system “will benefit long-haul and metro network operators who anticipate high growth in their networks”.
