The 8-dimension (80 waves per dimension) optical cross-connect
prototype implements a free cross-connect of 640 x 640 waves.
The 12-channel parallel fiber transmitter and receiver pair is designed for use in applications such as board-to-board, rack-to-rack, and bay-to-bay links in optical cross-connect
switches, terabit routers, VSR equipment, and high-speed computers.
A new generation of managed optical cross-connect
systems route huge volumes of network traffic, while adapting dynamically to changing traffic patterns and customer needs.
In addition to testing maximum bandwidth, labs need to be able to test numerous devices in rapid succession, which plays to the unique architecture of this optical cross-connect
product and the wear and tear saved from only wiring the system once.
Drava and Mura are ideally designed for 5G and lower line card applications requiring framer/pointer processing functions, in particular the Multi Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP) and Optical Cross-Connect
The CHESS Wideband chip set is a high capacity VT/TU grooming solution portfolio that enables cost-effective in-service upgrades to [acute accent]MSPPs, MSPPs and Optical Cross-Connect
The venerable optical cross-connect
(OXC), for example, is usually an optical-electrical-optical device that is more of a super-charged digital access cross connect (DACS or DXC).
Most recently, Nortel deployed a complete metro optical solution for Verizon Dominicana's wireline network, based on Nortel Optical Cross-Connect
DX and Optical Metro 3500, to consolidate network traffic, provide improved flexibility and reduce operating expenses.
Under the terms of this agreement, the Polatis family of Optical Cross-Connect
Switches, which offer industry leading performance, will be available through JDS Uniphase's network of resellers, direct sales, and distribution channels.
With this Nortel deployment, the MAN LAN will expand its capabilities to incorporate additional optical cross-connect
functionality for circuit switching, extending its ability to create optical paths for the research community.
