JDSU adds to WaveReady family

FEBRUARY 26, 2009 -- Added to the portfolio are a 10-Gbps tunable transponder with forward error correction (FEC), a power balancing system, and a 40-channel universal multiplexer/de-multiplexer.

FEBRUARY 26, 2009 -- JDSU (search Lightwave for JDSU) has released additions to its WaveReady line of scalable optical transport products for access and metro optical networks. Added to the portfolio are a 10-Gbps tunable transponder with forward error correction (FEC), a power balancing system, and a 40-channel universal multiplexer/de-multiplexer.

The new WaveReady products will be on display at CeBIT 2009 in Hannover, Germany, March 3-8 (Hall 13, stand B20).

The WaveReady system is designed to provide a compact approach for tunable optical networks, providing automated optical gain equalization that ensures maximum network availability and reduces the need for maintenance.

Introduced at CeBIT:


  • The WaveReady WRT-852, a compact C-Band or L-Band tunable transponder with FEC designed for reliable and cost-effective transport of 10-Gbps services. The WRT-852 supports the transport of multiple services, including OTN, SONET/SDH, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel. In addition to improving the transmission performance of 10-Gbps services via FEC, the WRT-852 provides statistics on SONET/SDH and Ethernet traffic.
  • The WaveReady WRS-05AD1C00B, providing per-channel power balancing capabilities for tunable, amplified networks.
  • The WaveReady 40-channel Universal Multiplexer, featuring high isolation and low insertion loss in a compact platform compatible with point-to-point or OADM deployments.
