As the need for bandwidth continues to increase exponentially, identifying solutions to maximise infrastructure is imperative to the cable market. The latest solution from ProLabs has been designed to support existing network infrastructure, offering service providers an innovative solution for a truly plug and play deployment experience. With no host intervention required, the Clarity Auto-Tunable DWDM Transceiver is simply plugged into the host device and passive mux and the transceiver does the rest.

Clarity Auto-Tunable DWDM transceivers are compatible with any Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) switch platform that supports SFP+ transceivers including switch platforms that do not natively support tunable transceivers. The transceivers have the capability to auto-discover and self-tune to individual wavelengths without manipulation by OEM platforms or peripheral devices, reducing the complexity of tuning to specific wavelengths in the field.

The cable market constantly faces the challenge of meeting ever-increasing bandwidth demands while maintaining or reducing Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and Operational Expenditure (OpEx). As this challenge intensifies, Multiple System Operators (MSOs) will continue to implement new technologies and network architectures. One example includes the use of Remote-PHY (R-PHY) technology to deliver digital DWDM signals in the network, over fibres rather than traditional analogue or QAM signals.

Using DWDM transceivers allows a more effective use of the fibre resources available, which results in MSO subscribers being able to utilise higher bandwidth alongside advanced services. Service providers’ costs can be reduced further as the need for transceiver tuning equipment is eliminated due to the DWDM technology self-tuning advancement.
