LOS ANGELES -- Optelian, a trusted designer and manufacturer of optical transport systems, today announced that its LightGAIN optical networking platform now has 80-channel DWDM capacity. Optelian will demonstrate the higher bandwidth system at OFC/NFOEC (booth #2400) being held this week at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

This high capacity is supported using 50 GHz spaced 80-channel multiplexers, two and four degree ROADMs, optical channel monitors, higher powered optical fiber amplifiers, high linearity fiber Bragg grating dispersion compensation modules and tunable DWDM transponders. LightGAIN's modularity allows network operators to start with a 40-channel system, and then grow to 80 channels by simply adding another 40-channel multiplexer, without disrupting traffic on existing channels.

This new high-bandwidth system will benefit long-haul and metro network operators who anticipate high growth in their networks.

"Explosive bandwidth demands from mobile devices and over-the-top video services are driving the need for more transport capacity in optical networks," said Sheldon Walklin, Optelian's Chief Technology Officer. "Our 80-channel solution is scalable, can be upgraded while in service, and is simple to manage. It has multi-degree ROADM capability with fully automated optical power management. Moreover, it is 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s ready, providing a future upgrade path to 8 Tb/s per fiber."
