Dynamic Power Detection
Enablence offers advanced optical channel monitors (OCMs) that ensure proper and efficient operation of the network.
As networks become more configurable, monitoring and balancing the power in each channel becomes critical. Optical channel monitoring is used to measure the power in each channel of a multi-wavelength optical system. Enablence’s APMUX is an OCM for metro and long-haul networks designed for fast optical power detection of individual channels on a multiplex of DWDM wavelengths.
The APMUX takes advantage of Enablence’s proprietary Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) technology to integrate multiple components in a small form factor. It consists of an Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG), arrayed photodetectors and an internal temperature controller for stabilization of the AWG chip, integrated in a common package.
