ECI Telecom’s XDM Reduces Optical Network Costs

At CeBIT 2000, ECI Telecom launched XDM, a revolutionary optical platform. XDM is the first product to integrate within a single shelf the functionality of a DWDM optical networking multiplexer, narrow, wide and broadband Digital Cross-Connects, IP routing, ATM switching and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) Add-Drop-Multiplexers.

This all-in-one optical platform ensures tenfold capacity increase, full nonblocking connectivity, with more than 70 percent savings in network deployment costs.

A single XDM system can terminate terabit fiber while it provides direct subscriber connections at any speed from 64kbps up to STM-64 (10gbps).

Corning Introduces Transmission Products

Corning Inc., an optical-layer company, recently introduced optical fiber and photonic products designed to meet the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth.

Corning introduced a line of submarine optical fibers that permit carriers to optimize the performance of their ultra-high-capacity networks in the high-pressure environment of undersea transmission systems.

Submarine LEAF+ optical fiber, Submarine SMF-LS+ optical fiber and Submarine SMF-28+ optical fiber are three fibers specifically designed for use in undersea networks.

Engineered to work separately or in combination, each fiber has optical properties that complement one another and perform optimally in DWDM systems operating in the 1,530 nanometers (nm) to 1,565nm window.

Corning also has a series of products to help system operators increase the bandwidth capacity of their networks through wavelength or channel management. Corning’s PurePath Wavelength Modular Switch, a reconfigurable optical add/drop module is capable of individually adding or dropping specific wavelengths at 100 GHz or 200 GHz without any interruption of through traffic.
