InnoTrans Communications will demonstrate its flexible optical network offerings at the upcoming 2010 Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans Oct. 20-22.
InnoTrans, founded by the technical team behind Synchronous, will demonstrate how its Chromadigm 1550 DWDM solutions can be initially deployed for node splitting and fiber reclamation, and then convert to a fiber deep or RFoG solution without taking down the existing network even momentarily.
The Chromadigm solution has the following features:
- Provides distance independent performance, crucial for RFoG and fiber deep projects, which may have receivers at varying distances from the transmitter
- Operates in the C-Band on ITU wavelengths, which can be amplified in the field or in the hub to overcome network losses, unlike O-Band solutions, which have limited reach
- Has SBS suppression built in so that high powers can be launched into the fiber, unlike current direct modulation transmitters
- Has high OMI, essential for RFoG products since a low modulation depth produces very poor carrier to noise ratios
- Ability to scale to 16 wavelengths in the future, providing a future proof building block to keep HFC networks at the forefront of bandwidth delivery in the access market
- Has Integrated Optical Muxes and EDFA’s, minimizing the need for numerous optical jumpers in the headend.
