NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Booth #1217 – ProLabs, a global leader in optical networking and connectivity solutions, today announced self-tuning Clarity Auto-Tunable DWDM Transceivers, which are designed to save service providers cost and time to deploy new services. Clarity will be unveiled this week at Cable-Tec Expo®, in ProLabs’ booth (#1217) on the exhibition floor of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
The cable market is challenged by demand for increasing subscriber bandwidth while at the same time maintaining or reducing CapEx and OpEx. This challenge is driving multiple system operators (MSOs) to deploy new technologies and network architectures. One such example involves using Remote-PHY (R-PHY) technology to deliver digital Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) signals over the fiber part of the network rather than traditional analog or hybrid-fiber coax architectures. Using DWDM transceivers allows more efficient use of fiber resources, which in turn enables MSO subscribers to enjoy higher bandwidth and more advanced services. Enabling DWDM transceivers to self-tune, further reduces costs – and the traditional need for tuning equipment is eliminated.
ProLabs provides a complete set of end-to-end solutions – from tuning transceivers to fit within DWDM networks to monitoring DWDM networks to troubleshoot issues. These solutions are designed to save service providers time and money. As the newest member of ProLabs’ solution portfolio, Clarity is a plug-and-play solution that is appropriate for any OEM switch platform that supports SFP+ transceivers. Service providers can plug Clarity into the host and passive mux – and the transceiver automatically locates the open channel, tunes and locks onto the transceiver at the other end.
Specific features and benefits of Clarity Auto-Tunable DWDM Transceivers include:
“While the idea of tuning products is certainly not new, the industry is accustomed to using products that require software or a separate device to perform this functionality,” said Raymond Hagen, global product line manager, ProLabs. “With Clarity, we have eliminated the need for technicians to track fibers or carry extra equipment to program the wavelength of each module during their deployment, which leads to faster deployment and reduced costs. It’s a win-win.”
In addition to the unveiling of Clarity Auto-Tunable DWDM Transceivers at Cable-Tec Expo, ProLabs will also have its full line of optical transceivers on display at its booth. ProLabs technical experts will be demonstrating three products: Clarity, ProTune™ and EON-OMP-2.
Demo d etails are as follows:
Added Hagen, “As networks aim to meet growing 5G connectivity demands, MSOs need the ability to both increase capacity and monitor network performance to deliver high-quality connectivity. Our ProTune and EON-OMP-2 products can do just that – and are complementary in their functionality. Our demos will show how these products can extend the purchase of the DWDM transceiver – from the turn-up of the connection to the management and monitoring of the network. We look forward to demonstrating the power of these solutions at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo.”
