NetTest has unveiled its new DynaMics channel equaliser to allow system designers to more accurately control their all-optical networks.
Built on the bulk-optics platform and using liquid crystal technology, the new equaliser enables users to remotely and independently control the amplitude of each network channel, according to NetTest product marketing director Laurent Begin.
“Programmable components such as the DynaMics channel equaliser are vital in the development and maintenance of advanced networks,” Begin said.
“This new product allows system designers to effectively pilot their networks, ensuring maximum protection and performance.”
Begin also confirmed the future release of DynaMics R-OADM – a fully integrated, reconfigurable optical add drop module built on the same bulk-optics multi-purpose platform combined with MEMS technology.
NetTest also unveiled Mics Platinum, which it is touting as the only completely athermal mux/demux featuring an insertion loss of 2.5dB for the Gaussian option and 4.4dB for the FlatTop option, and an insertion loss uniformity of 1dB for 16 channels and 1.5dB for 40 channels.
With improved athermal design, no temperature regulation is required over the whole operating temperature range of –5 to +70°C, reducing design and operational costs in large channel count systems, Begin said.
“With the launch of Mics Platinum, produced specially for easy integration into DWDM systems, NetTest strengthens its position as the leasing manufacturer of athermal mux/demux for large channel count networks,” Begin added.
