The Transmode TS-Series

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

The modularity of the solution and its flexible plug-in units allow a step-by-step growth in both functionality and capacity. or requirements in functionality expand. it’s a small and compact system with a low initial investment. And stop worrying about traffic types. As a network grows. Low cost per channel Measuring the cost per channel is the best way to indicate the total cost of operating a transport network. Virtually all traffic formats – Gigabit Ethernet. 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. Low power consumption is another important aspect of maintaining low costs. Compact solutions require less power .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. different types of chassis and traffic boards are available to accommodate changing needs. and reduces the critical factor of site rental costs. Transmode’s TSSeries is cost efficient in many different aspects. called multi-rate boards. the iWDM concept results in the intelligent use of an existing infrastructure while existing traffic types are easily transported over the WDM technology. simply deploy the number of boards needed to cover the required amount of traffic. As many of the boards in the TS-Series support multiple traffic types in one unit. This means a solution that requires less space. SDH/SONET or Fiber Channel – are cost-efficiently transformed into wavelengths and transmitted through a network. To begin with. Again.

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

the TS portfolio involves the following families of traffic boards: Family of Muxponders • 5400 Combining 2 x Gigabit Ethernet signals into one 2. TS-1100 and TS-100. 80 wavelengths.5 Gigabit/s all traffic types • 7900 For 10 Gigabit/s all traffic types TS-1100 5400 5800 5810 7720 7900 .25 Gigabit line signal • 5800 Combining 4 x Gigabit Ethernet signals into one 4. can be carried in the fiber.5 Gigabit/s all traffic types • 7720 For Dual 2. each with multiple traffic types.25 Gigabit line signal • 5810 Combining 2 x Gigabit Ethernet and 2 x STM1/4 signals into one 4. (Wikipedia) Muxponder: A combination of a Multiplexer and a Transponder. Available in two different chassis. A technology that multiplexes multiple optical signals on a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (colors) of a laser light to carry different signals. and outputs that into a single line. (Wikipedia) Wavelength: In the fiber (single or fiber pair).5 Gigabit line signal • 5500 Combining 4 x low speed protocols into one 1. Another name for wavelength is channel. (Wikipedia) Solution facts: Transmode’s TS-Series is optimized and specially designed for the challenges of metro applications. A Multiplexer selects one of many digital input signals.25 Gigabit line signal In addition. CWDM: Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing DWDM: Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing Transponder: An automatic device that receives. the TS-Series comprises a number of pluggable optics (SFPs and XFPs). and to do this we use the iWDM concept.Small words that make a big difference: WDM: Wavelength Division Multiplexing. filter types and an amplifier. amplifies and retransmits a signal on a different frequency. In a Transmode network a wavelength can transport many different traffic types. Family of Transponders • 7400 For 1/2/4 Gigabit/s Fiber Channel • 7700 For 2. a wavelength represents one color of light.
