Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is the best way to increase efficiency and data density but it requires a new level of testing. Every connector, splice, MUX, DEMUX must be tested using the appropriate wavelengths and correct colored transceiver TX is received at the proper level on the RX side. When a DWDM is half full it is hard to troubleshoot with legacy test equipment which is why inline DWDM OTDR/iOLM channel testing is required.
Webinar: A New Generation of Pluggable, 100 – 400G Coherent Optical Modules: Implementation and Testing
Evolving network requirements are driving an expansion of use cases that can benefit from coherent optical technology. This is ushering in a new era of pluggable coherent optical technology with 100 – 400Gb/s capacity, support for various interoperable transport standards and a wide variety of client payloads. At the same time, the options for pluggable client optical transceivers are also broadening with respect to form factor, client rates and types. At the nexus of these trends are transport and router platforms utilizing both client pluggable optics and coherent pluggable optics to support a range of different applications. These systems will leverage the capabilities of this new generation of multi-rate coherent pluggables to enable features like modularity, pay-as-you-grow, interoperability and flexibility.
Tellabs and EXFO demonstrate a fiber-based enterprise LAN, designed using Passive Optical Networking technology, that can economically support one gigabit to ten gigabit connectivity speeds simultaneously over existing infrastructure to satisfy the ever-increasing network densities and capacities demanded by today’s modern smart buildings.
Tellabs and EXFO showcased a live demonstration of “the ever-increasing bandwidths possible over PON while preserving investments in existing fiber cabling, splitters, and equipment, at the Winter BICSI Conference.
Do you know which use cases 5G is realistically expected to support by 2025? Or how it will be possible for 5G to deliver on its multifaceted promise by then? Attend this webinar and learn: What 5G is (now) and it will be (by 2025), Which 5G use cases are likely to change our world by 2025 (maybe autonomous vehicles, maybe not…), Which near- and long-term 5G network challenges worry operators the most and why, from specific domains (e.g., radio access) to end-to-end network slicing, and What is needed to ensure that 5G fully delivers by 2025, if not earlier, and what can be done starting today.
EXFO introduces the Optical Wave Expert, the first device to integrate DWDM channel power validation and intelligent OTDR fault-locating capabilities on a single port. Designed to save multiple service operators (MSOs) time and money, the Optical Wave Expert equips field technicians to automatically measure, diagnose and troubleshoot optical fiber links.
The lifecycle of a traditional enterprise Ethernet switch, supported by copper cable, is 5 to 7 years. POLs eliminate the need to rip and replace network infrastructure, requiring changes only to the endpoints. This webinar will focus on the deployment of optical line terminals, passive optical splitters and optical network terminals to optimize enterprise network architecture for modern-day applications like IoT, cloud, network-as-a-service and wireless.
