OptiDriver® advanced ROADMs solution enables seamless photonic Metro networks. The 2/4 degree ROADMs use advanced WSS (Wave Selecting Switching) technology to implement reconfigurable and flexible networks up to 96 DWDM C-Band channels at 100GHz or 50GHz spacing.
The modules physically switch and attenuate signals on a per-channel basis in response to a comprehensive set of commands via the LD management module. The devices support colorless and directionless wavelength allocation so that one or a bundle of any selected DWDM channels can be switched to a specified ADD/DROP port.
Each specific channel at the ADD ports can be attenuated by software command via the integrated VOA (Variable Optical Attenuator). A group of channels switched to an ADD port can be attenuated as well via management commands.
