PacketLight’s PL-1000RO offers ROADM functionality based on the most advanced next generation wavelength-selective switch (WSS) technology.
The solution offers highly flexible wavelength routing capabilities suitable for mesh, ring, linear add/drop, core and edge DWDM network topologies. The PL-1000RO supports colorless, directionless and both 50GHz and 100GHz grids.
The PL-1000RO ROADM is configured dynamically to add/drop selected wavelengths at any node in the network and seamlessly change the network node capacity as needed. In addition, it automatically maintains the equalization and power balance of the added and bypassed wavelengths.
The product integrates an EDFA for amplifying the wavelengths and a tunable dispersion compensation module (DCM) for delivering effective and flexible wavelength routing.
Powerful Feature Set
The PL-1000RO ROADM simplifies network management and reduces operation costs (OPEX) by allowing fast deployment of new wavelengths remotely. The product fully integrates with PacketLight’s transponder/muxponder and OTN product families and is managed from PacketLight LightWatchTM NMS platform.
