Get the most out of your fiber infrastructure

The Transmode TS-Series

Transmode has taken an additional step towards increasing the efficiency of WDM technology. This could mean the expansion of data transport capacity between different company hubs. Or addressing specific security aspects. . It’s widely used by large telecom operators and service providers to increase capacity in metro networks.WDM – Technology that solves your capacity problems WDM is a standardized and well-proven technology. mainframes or servers. iWDM offers powerful and cost-efficient solutions that use existing technology – in a smarter way. By innovatively transforming many types of traffic into one wavelength. public and private institutions are realizing the benefits offered by WDM technology in terms of transporting data from A to B. then Transmode can make that choice easy. WDM is also well suited for a range of enterprises or smaller ISPs as it offers the opportunity to capitalize on this leading technology in metro network solutions. We call it the intelligent WDM (iWDM™) concept. If the decision is between renting more fiber or better utilizing existing fiber. More and more enterprises. we make even better use of the capabilities presented by WDM.

it’s a small and compact system with a low initial investment. simply deploy the number of boards needed to cover the required amount of traffic. To begin with. different types of chassis and traffic boards are available to accommodate changing needs. Virtually all traffic formats – Gigabit Ethernet. As a network grows. The modularity of the solution and its flexible plug-in units allow a step-by-step growth in both functionality and capacity. SDH/SONET or Fiber Channel – are cost-efficiently transformed into wavelengths and transmitted through a network. Low cost per channel Measuring the cost per channel is the best way to indicate the total cost of operating a transport network. the iWDM concept results in the intelligent use of an existing infrastructure while existing traffic types are easily transported over the WDM technology. And stop worrying about traffic types. As many of the boards in the TS-Series support multiple traffic types in one unit. and reduces the critical factor of site rental costs. Low power consumption is another important aspect of maintaining low costs. called multi-rate boards. Transmode’s TSSeries is cost efficient in many different aspects. or requirements in functionality expand. Compact solutions require less power . This means a solution that requires less space. Again. Moving from CWDM to the more capable DWDM technology is easy – and made without disrupting the traffic – thanks to the modularity and scalability offered by the pay-as-yougrow architecture.Just pay for what you need Transmode’s TS-Series offers a CWDM and DWDM solution with all the functionality needed for the cost-efficient transmission of high-bandwidth traffic.

This eliminates the need for manual provisioning and reduces the need for expert handling. This means that there is no need for “over-sizing” a network. the cost of transporting data is dramatically reduced. We call it the iWDM concept. Consequently. a channel carries 2 x Gigabit Ethernet and 2 x SDH traffic and is transported over fiber together with several other channels. And it’s not just typical telecom operators that stand to profit. Thanks to Transmode’s superior utilization of fiber capacity. And by replacing manual with automated configuration. than larger ones.Transmode has many satisfied customers running CWDM and DWDM networks. Plug-in slots and robust hardware account for easy component handling and they reduce the risk for costly and timeconsuming damages during installation. where several channels share the same fiber. the solution can be up and running within minutes. our various chassis and boards offered enable the perfect match of size and functionality. In this example. site cooling is drastically reduced. a fact that avoids unnecessary investments and unnecessarily high power consumption. . easy to use iWDM allows for automated node provisioning and the automatic detection of protocols. Easy to install. Finally. Transmode’s commitment to Low Power Design is a proof point that our products and solutions have low power consumption today – and tomorrow. It’s large installed base – with more than 7500 deployments – clearly shows that this is the technology to move forward with.
