Transmode launches passive WDM platform


Transmode, a leading provider of Optical Networking Solutions launches the TG-Series, a passive optical WDM platform, at the 2nd European Next Generation Access Network Forum FTTx in Berlin.

Increasing demand for new and upcoming high capacity business and residential services, such as IPTV, is driving extensive growth in telecommunications network capacity requirements. Whilst multiple technology choices are available for the first mile - copper, fibre or wireless, the preferable choice for the aggregated second mile is clear - fibre. Due to the capacity growth, fibre is required closer to the end customer with deployments to street cabinets and even manhole applications.

The Transmode TG-series is designed to meet the requirements of next generation networks. It is temperature hardened, flexible, scalable and easily adaptable to the requirements of the second mile network. It is intended for network upgrades, such as Ethernet overlay for PDH or SDH networks, as well as for Greenfield installations, including high security business interconnect and FTTC (Fibre to the curb) installations for VDSL networks, amongst others. It may also serve as a first step into WDM networking, providing an easily upgradeable route to an active solution, utilising the TM-Series or TS-Series compact access products.

“Vtesse Networks, the UK’s principal Optical Network service provider, has wide scale deployments of the Transmode TM-Series and TS-Series and found the TG-Series a very useful addition to the portfolio” said Alan Mitchell, Vtesse’s CTO. “Transmode was able to adapt the TG-Series to give us an optical networking infrastructure that fulfilled our needs for high security whilst still allowing multi customer use.”

The highly integrated TG-series includes rack based modules for central office or street cabinet use, pig-tail modules where available space is minimal and environmentally hardened splice enclosure modules for manhole applications. The modules can be tailor-made to fit particular customer requirements and are fully compatible with the Transmode TM-Series and TS-Series.

“The introduction of high speed services is driving rapid growth in traffic levels and this is driving fibre deployments deeper into the access network” said Magnus Öberg, Transmode’s CTO. “We are proud of our heritage in metro networking and are very pleased to be announcing this extension of our portfolio that together with our TM-Series and TS-Series makes us strongly positioned to support our customers’ metro WDM and access networking requirements”.
