Within the solutions portfolio are optical transport elements, transponders, muxponders, and media converters, in addition to data, optical test and verification equipment.
As network complexities increase and distance requirements grow, network administrators are challenged with meeting new requirements and integrating new with old infrastructures; whether it be connecting copper to fibre, or single-mode to multimode fibre networks. ProLabs offers a range of media converters that
support a variety of cable and connector types to seamlessly integrate disparate networks.
This range includes:
- Mini-media converters (MiMCs)
- Managed media converters
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) Media converters
- Unmanaged media converters
- Industrial media converters
The Transponder/Muxponder Series includes the EON-10210 which offers ten independent transponders operating from 1G to 16G line rates, enabling 20 DWDM channels per 1U of rack space and the EON-121 - which converts a 100G QSFP28 client interface to Coherent CFP for metro, long haul and DWDM applications (up to 200G per 1U of rack space).
These products allow:
- Data Centre Interconnect
- Ability to add/drop channels
- Wire Rate encryption
OTDR and Network Services Validation
Prolabs’ EON-NSV-OTDR has been designed to allow for not just the testing of the underlying optical circuit but also the data services that may be running over it. The EON-NSV-OTDR can be configured to provide real-time monitoring of the network and should pre-defined 'Service Level Agreement' criteria fail to be met, can send alarms to notify the Network Management team. The benefits of these products include
- Remote Cost-effective fibre plant monitoring
- Reduces field visits and time to repair
- Remotely Monitors optical fibre plant and data services
EON-OMP-2 MultiService Platform
Prolabs’ EON-OMP-x family of products is a compact platform that can be configured to support a variety of features and functionalities. The platform can support a wide array of interface modules, such as EDFA, OEO, OLP, OLM, FEC, OCM, OTDR, ROADM and Muxponder/Transponder modules. All Interface modules are hot-swappable and can be configured in any mix, to cater to the specific required functionality. The platform is fully redundant, with low power consumption and fully manageable – easily integrating into standard northbound management architectures. The platform can provide customers with a multi-service, multi-rate access platform which can be integrated into existing CWDM/DWDM networks, allowing a cost-effective way of extending the footprint of existing networks.
OCM Optical Channel Devices
The EON-OMP-OCM Interface card measures the optical spectrum, channel power, channel wavelength, channel OSNR, and total power on the monitored fibre.
ProLabs OCM offers network operators increased visibility into identifying the root cause of network issues to minimize the impact of infrastructure disruption while reducing the meantime to repair. The card which sits within the OMP not only saves time by improving visibility of remote Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) channel signal characteristics such as to receive power, receive wavelength and Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR), it dramatically reduces truck rolls to remote locations to perform physical audits of DWDM channel and signal integrity. This device allows the Network Management Centre engineers to remotely monitor and troubleshoot reported network issues before sending out any field engineers.
- Flexible multi-service optical platform
- OEO, EDFA, OCM, OTDR, ROADM & 100G launch functionality.
