Aurora Debuting 100-GHz DWDM Platform


Aurora Networks said it will debut a new 100-gigahertz dense-wave-division-multiplexing optical networking platform at the Society of Cable and Telecommunications Engineers’ Cable-Tec Expo, June 16-18 in Orlando, Fla.

The vendor said its 40-channel transport system dramatically reduces fiber consumption in high-capacity networks by enabling the deployment of up to 40 unique optical wavelengths on a single optical fiber over long distances.

This allows operators to scale their networks to meet the demands of present and future services without the need to install additional fiber, Aurora said.

"Every product in Aurora's DWDM line has been engineered to support 40-channel DWDM distribution without concerns for compatibility and interoperability," senior product manager Ron Wolfe said in a prepared statement.

"The rollout of this new platform allows our MSO customers to quickly and easily deploy high-bandwidth services over existing networks without costly fiber upgrades," he added.
