Zhone Debuts its FiberSLAM -- a Hybrid C/DWDM Multiplexer

Zhone Technologies unveiled its FiberSLAM -- a 1 RU hybrid access system that integrates Coarse/Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (C/DWDM) Gigabit-Ethernet (GbE) and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) capabilities.
The unit is designed for bringing fiber access to carrier Remote Terminal (RT) and cell tower installations.

FiberSLAM is based on Zhone's Single Line Multi-Service (SLMS) architecture and supports a migration from TDM (E1/T1 and DS3) to all-Ethernet (GbE) networks. Separate wavelengths may be used for dedicated channel delivery.

Flexible filter options allow the same chassis to be deployed in point to point, protected, and 1310 sideband applications through the addition of the field upgradeable module.
