The optical core of this Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) platform is based on an advanced Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS). This delivers the most flexible wavelength routing and topology available today. The platform enables optical mesh architectures, with which metro and regional carriers are shaping the DWDM transport network of the future. It also integrates optical multiplexer/demultiplexer, variable optical attenuation and a Micro Electrical Mechanical System (MEMS)-based optical switch into a single component. The WSS removes the need for fiber jumpers when adding or dropping wavelengths. Overall, the capabilities of the FLASHWAVE 7500 system allow drastic reductions in both CAPEX and OPEX.
The FLASHWAVE 7500 Metro/Regional Multiservice ROADM is an economical and sophisticated solution for today's metro and regional bandwidth requirements for up to 40 wavelengths, 24 nodes and 1000 km in distance. Remote software provisioning and sophisticated self-tuning features allow rapid service activation. Advanced optical line cards provide efficient on-ramps to a fully photonic backbone, delivering key business services such as Video on Demand (VoD), residential high-speed Internet access and enterprise data services across metro and regional networks up to 1000 kilometers.
