Optelian has announced availability of two new system cards -- the RDM-2x1 and OCM-40 -- for ROADM and network monitoring applications. According to the company in its news release, the capabilities enabled by Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexing (ROADM), allow network operators to realize significant operational savings when reconfiguring optical channels at remote locations.


"'The RDM-2x1 and the OCM-40 are key building blocks in agile optical networks,' said Dave Mills, VP sales for Optelian. 'With these new cards, network operators get all the benefits of LightGAIN systems including low power consumption, ease of deployment, and decades of worry-free operation.'

"The capabilities enabled by Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexing (ROADM), allow network operators to realize significant operational savings when reconfiguring optical channels at remote locations. Rather than sending technicians to a site, provisioning is done easily and quickly at the operations center. Traffic can be rerouted instantly in response to service requests or fiber cuts."
