15 MAY 2008 -- Transmode has increased the port density of its TG-Series passive optical WDM platform.
The TG-Series is designed to be compact, temperature-hardened, flexible, scalable, and easily adaptable to the requirements of the "second mile" network. It is intended for network upgrades, such as Ethernet overlay for PDH or SDH networks, as well as for greenfield installations, including high-security business interconnect and fiber to the curb installations for VDSL networks, amongst others. It may also serve as a first step into WDM networking, providing an easily upgradeable route to an active approach using Transmode's complementary TM-Series or TS-Series compact access products.
The TG-Series has now been advanced with new plug-in modules, each of which provides 24 LC connector ports. The modules can, for example, be configured as an eight-channel mux/demux with extension and monitor ports. Three units can be fitted in a 1RU rack-mount panel.
"As the second-mile fiber networks migrate closer to the end customer we are receiving increased interest in requirements such as compactness, environmental hardening, and power consumption," said Magnus Ã�berg, Transmode's CTO. "We are proud of providing solutions as the TG-Series, which in combination with our active TM- and TS-Series of WDM platforms, are highly suitable for the metro/regional, as well as for the second-mile access area."
