iROAD

The iROADTM provides a flexible, integrated solution for multi-channel reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) with power monitoring and automatic channel balancing at  low cost, small size and low power dissipation. The key building block for the iROADTM module is an integrated 2×1 switch-VOA-tap array based on Enablence’s library of proven optical building blocks and planar lightwave circuit (PLC) integration technology.

BENEFITS

IROAD

  • Number of channels: 16 to 40
  • Channel spacing: 200, 100, 50 GHz
