Lightchip's Optical Performance Monitor sets a new standard for monitoring DWDM networks. The OPM is a high performance product designed for ease of use in today's high performance networks. It rapidly provides precise measurements of both the optical power and the wavelength for every channel.
It has an ultra-high dynamic range of 60dB thus enabling the monitoring of optical channels essentially independent of channel variations of transport power. In addition, the extremely high optical power sensitivity of the permits non-intrusive optical performance monitoring.
The OPM is designed to easily interface with other DWDM modules such as muxes, demuxes, EDFAs, or OADMs. The shelf monitors each DWDM channel independent of the direction of the channel, thus is compatible with bi-directional networks.
