1696 ROADM (Vendor Soup)

Time 07/17/07 01:15PM-01:45PM

Session Abstract

The Alcatel-Lucent 1696 ROADM platform offers significant scalability to fiber networks while solving several key issues associated with such high-capacity networks. One of the key benefits the 1696 ROADM product offers is the ability to monitor and manage wavelengths without needing intrusive procedures. This is accomplished using our patented Wave Tracker technology, which allows an operator to point and click "any to any" wavelength reassignment, run expansion and failure scenarios before they happen, and monitor the network down to the wavelength and module level. The second issue of reconfigurability and scalability can be solved from an architectural perspective using Reconfigurable Optical Switching, which also provides the flexibility to start with 10 Gbps wavelengths and migrate to 40 Gbps and above without losing any operational benefits. This session will cover the architecture, features and benefits of the Alcatel-Lucent 1696 ROADM product.
