Alcatel Announces a Lot of Products
Below are the innovations announced today by Alcatel Optronics:
-200 mW output power submarine pumps, which qualified for a product life cycle of more than 25 years. Designed for high bit-rate, DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing) transmission, these pumps allow the amplification of an increased number of wavelengths and confirm Alcatel Optronics' worldwide leadership in this market segment;
-ultra compact external 40 Gbit/s modulator based on Indium Phosphide and a low operating voltage representing a significant breakthrough in both the integration and the cost reduction for high bit rate optical systems;
-a complete product line dedicated to Raman amplification ranging from pump modules at 300 mW, multi-pump modules at 800 mW and optical amplifier subsystems. This product line, which confirms Alcatel's global leadership in Raman amplification, will reduce the metropolitan transmission system cost as well as long haul and ultra long haul;
-a new 10 Gbit/s WDM optical interface dedicated to metropolitan applications characterized by its compact size and which conforms to international interoperability standards between manufacturers (MSA); and a new optical add/drop multiplexer based on Fiber Bragg Grating technology which permits a simpler and more integrated configuration and at a lower cost.
