Packetlight Networks Overview
Wait, first - what is WDM?
WDM (Wavelength-division multiplexing) is a technology which multiplexes a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (i.e., colors) of laser light. This technique enables bidirectional communications over one strand of fiber, as well as multiplication of capacity. (Wikipedia)
Packetlight offers a variety of WDM & OTN (optical layer transport) products such as: Based on 100G/200G DWDM muxponder/transponder/ADM products. These products cover short haul, DCI (data center interconnect), metro, and long haul applications. Among the 100G to 200G products:
