ROADM – the solution for multichannel networks
Versatile add/drop of lightpath channels for the network upgrade and protection
Reconfigurable multiplexers ROADM-x/1 (x=2, 4,9) are intended for flexible routing and cross-connect of optical channels on core network nodes. Multiplexers ROADM-1T/40C enables you to extract several optical channels from input DWDM signal, and to add client channels into output DWDM signal. Multiplexers ROADM-x/1 (x=2,4,9) enables you to extract arbitrary channels from 2, 4, or 9 input DWDM signals and combine them into one output DWDM signal. An optical equalizer has one DWDM input port and one DWDM output port. An output signal power in each multiplexer can be tuned channelby-channel in the Network Management System (NMS) using internal attenuators. All ROADM units support the
WSS redundancy that allows you to reconfigure the path of optical channel when receiving the control signal. This technology allows you to provide redundancy for high bit-rate channels 100G and 40G at a minimal cost. The reconfiguration of the route takes less than 40 sec.
