Optical networking and connectivity solutions provider, ProLabs unveiled its new 1G DWDM tunable transceiver at SCTE Cable-Tex Expo. It reduces the cost and complexity of transceiver inventory requirements for data centers and enterprise networks. ProLabs ProTune Coding & Tuning System provides the ability to tune 1G DWDM optics, which offers flexibility.
The solution contains five tunables. They have the capability to tune to channels 20-27, 28-35, 36-43, 44-51, or 52-59 respectively. ProLabs 1G DWDM tunables are being showcased with the company’s 400G, coherent, 100G ZR4, and fiber monitoring solutions. These include the CFP2-DCO coherent transceiver, the QSFP28 100G ZR4, and the Optical Monitoring Platform. Jon Eikel, Chief Strategy Officer, ProLabs said,
“The flexibility to deploy and tune a 1G DWDM transceiver addresses a variety of operational challenges for network operators. Having a 1G tunable transceiver in the access network helps operators reduce sparing and inventory complexity. This drives better performance in mean-time-to-repair by simplifying to a single part that fix agents can fit into any network segment on any wavelength.”
