ADTRAN Adds Four-Degree ROADM

ADTRAN introduced a new four-degree, scalable, compact Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (mini-ROADM) system-on-a-blade enables greater flexibility for service providers to respond to shifts in traffic and capacity demands in their residential, business, wholesale and mobile backhaul networks. ADTRAN's Optical Networking Edge (ONE) blade solution integrates into its flagship Total Access 5000/5006 platform.

ADTRAN said the flexibility of the four-degree, gridless mini-ROADM design reduces complexity in the network compared to alternative ROADM architectures that typically require a multi-blade implementation and a separate service delivery platform. The mini-ROADM design also simplifies agile optical network deployments by uniquely integrating into a single card the typical distributed and over-sized ROADM sub-elements, such as the amplifiers required to adjust for optical losses. These new features allow service providers to rapidly respond to customer requirements in dynamic markets like residential broadband, carrier Ethernet and 4G backhaul.

In addition, ADTRAN has doubled the transmission capacity of its ONE portfolio for up to 88 wavelengths of 10 Gbps. Future upgrade to 100Gbps networking and services will also be supported.

"ADTRAN has been working closely with customers to deliver a solution that allows them to merge multi-service access, aggregation and packet optical transport for increased network flexibility and scalability,” said Mano Nachum, packet optical networking product line manager, ADTRAN’s Carrier Networks Division. "The new ONE capabilities allow service providers to take full advantage of the benefits of agile photonics in response to the ever growing traffic and capacity demands on their metro, middle-mile and access edge networks."
