Getting the most out of your network is critical in today’s capital-constrained environment. Deploying dedicated fiber runs to every location is both impractical and expensive so reaching as many customers as possible from your existing fiber plant is critical to your success as a network operator. With Ekinops’ line of low-cost Optical Add & Drop Multiplexers (OADMs), you can aggregate traffic from multiple locations and deploy service to any customer without disrupting existing traffic. EKINOPS provides a broad line of OADM solutions for any network environmentand any channel count. Whether you need to add or drop a single wavelength or multiple wavelengths in only one direction or both east and west, or whether you have a dual fiber network or only single, EKINOPS has the solution for you. With up to four OADM modules hosted in a single 1RU enclosure, we provide a high density, low cost platform in the least amount of space to minimize the impact on your operations and your bottom line.
The EKINOPS solution is based on a 1RU passive chassis which can hold a mix of various elements such as Optical Multiplexers (OMs) and OADMs. The OADM modules support either 1-, 2-, 4- or8 channel Add & Drop capability on dual fiber spans covering CWDM channels from 1271 nm to1611 nm. For single fiber configuration, the OADMs support 1-, 2- or 4-channels of Add & Drop and can be uni- or bi-directional. OADMs can be one-degree adding and dropping traffic from a single side, or two-degree adding and dropping traffic in both the east and west directions.All OADMs are designed for operation in Extended Temperature Range (ETR) environments from -40°C to +65°C / -40°F to +149°F.
