PM OPM8

Optical Power Measurement module

PM OPM8

Pluggable remote optical perfomance monitoring module. Used for automated power balancing.

Optical power monitoring is a powerful tool for providing visibility into network-wide performance reporting of signal strength and availability. It improves the overall operation of the network with the ability to provide end-to-end network optimization.

Functional Description

The EKINOPS PM OPM8 is a device which provides up to eight spectrum input ports for optical power monitoring over the C-Band. The PM OPM8 is composed of an optical switch to select the input port to monitor. The selected input port is then monitored by the Optical Power Monitor component.

The PM OPM8 monitors the service state of each individual channel as well as the aggregated DWDM signal to provide information about optical power, channel presence/absence and channel mismatch due to out of service channels. It can also compensate for the insertion loss of the monitoring ports on a per channel basis.
