RM ROADM-H10-WB

Ten-Degree Open Architecture ROADM Shelf

RM ROADM-H10-WB

Rackable 10 degree reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer WhiteBox. Includes ROADM, optical amplifier with 1510 nm optical supervisory channel (OSC) and optical channel monitoring (OCM). Scalable from two to ten degrees using one RM ROADM WhiteBox per ROADM degree. Supports up to 80 channels.

EKINOPS RM ROADM-H10-WB provides all the functionality of a full Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) degree in a single 1RU shelf. Complete with a Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS)-based optical switch, booster amplifier, pre-amplifier and Optical Channel Monitor (OCM), the RM ROADM-H10-WB simplifies the installation and scalability of your ROADM network while improving its overall flexibility and performance. By integrating all of these functions, the RM ROADM-H10-WB eliminates the external cabling between modules to more effectively scale to any size network up to ten degrees.

The RM ROADM-H10-WB adds advanced functionality to any optical transport network. It can be combined with either EKINOPS optical multiplexers or the RM OC16 optical coupler to support full colorless, directionless and contentionless (CDC) system configuration. Automatic per-channel power balancing optimizes performance to achieve the highest Optical Signal-to-Noise Ratio (OSNR) possible and Flexgrid compatibility enables multirate designs by accommodating channels with different spectral widths and spacing requirements.

Having a compact and flexible form factor means “plug-and-play” scalability that allows the operator to add degrees when and where necessary without disrupting traffic on the existing degrees. Scalable from one to ten degrees, the RM ROADM-H10-WB extends the network beyond simple point-to-point and ring configurations to spurs and even optical mesh. It also eliminates the need for back-to-back transponders normally required for inter-network connectivity by providing an optical layer junction point for pure wavelength traffic.
