Svein Håvard Haugen, director of engineering at Nevion, said: Weve created optical modules that can expand as customers needs grow and feature more functionality, including upgrade ports and SFPs, into the same space-saving modules.
Nevion debuts new Flashlink active and passive optical modulesthe WOC seriesthat provide CWDM protection. Offered within new enclosures, the series supports Nevions optical solutions with a passive wideband optical splitter available in 50/50 or 90/10-split ratio, and an active wideband 2×2 optical redundancy switch with tally output.
A new high performance CWDM system (CWDM1-8/CWDM9-16) based on eight-channel optical filters gives broadcasters the ability to scale as needed through an upgrade port, supporting up to 16 channels of bidirectional traffic on the same fiber. Equipped with long haul specifications, the filters provide an alternative to Nevions 18-channel CWDM filter when fewer channels are needed. Wavelengths are chosen according to the ITU-T G.694.2 standard.
Used as a stand-alone filter or within an N-Box, Nevions new 18-channel, bidirectional optical CWDM filter (CWDM18) can function as a multiplexer or de-multiplexer, and occupies one Flashlink slot.
Nevions next-generation Flashlink Compact 2 packs features into a compact 1RU frame. With higher channel count, and SFPs and BNCs on opposite sides of the chassis, Flashlink 2 provides 36 channels supported by multiple electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical conversion. This optical conversion solution features a built-in CWDM filter and hot-pluggable optics. It joins Nevions Sublime optical series and multiple optical conversion solutions with a router core.
