Metropolitan dwdm system

The MultiWave Metro is a dense wavelength-division multiplexing system designed for use in metropolitan ring applications. The system consists of optical add/drop multiplexer nodes connected together on a 2-fiber ring. It provides up to 24 duplex channels over a single pair, allowing the pair to carry up to 60 Gbits/sec. The system can simultaneously support point-to-point, star, ring, or mesh configurations on the same fiber pair. Its standards-based, open architecture allows it to interface to all types of sonet/sdh lightwave terminal equipment as well as atm and Fast IP switching equipment and various embedded management systems.
