ECI Extends its Optical Portfolio with AccessWave CWDM

ECI Telecom introduced its AccessWave compact, optical networking platform targeting access and edge C/DWDM (Coarse/Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) applications.

The AccessWave is part of the company's BroadGate family of optical access solutions. Together, the XDM products and the BroadGate family now span from access to long-haul, all managed under a unified network management system - ECI's LightSoft network manager. LightSoft provides simplified management of the optical layer, enabling end-to-end, access to long-haul provisioning with one system.

ECI said the AccessWave supports all commonly required data, storage and circuit services, with capacity ranging from less than 2.5 Gbps up to multiple 10 Gbps. It offers unique aggregation and protection features that both reduce costs and enhance QoS.

The Access Wave is environmentally hardened, making it suitable for outside plant installations, in copper, fiber or cable access optical networks.
