BTI Systems narrows gap between CWDM and DWDM with expanded capacity


Company introduces 16 channel CWDM and support for 10G CWDM

Ottawa, Canada—Tuesday.- BTI Systems, a global supplier of Optical Edge networking solutions for the delivery of gigabit services, today announced its Netstender™ platform can now deliver 10 gigabits/second (G) over CWDM. The company is delivering 10G over a 16 channel CWDM system to supply service providers with a cost-effective method to build out networks as they scale their business to meet the demand for new services from their customers.

CWDM systems have historically been limited to 2.5G optics and 8 wavelengths, driving customers to more expensive DWDM solutions to provide higher channel counts and 10G transport at the wavelength level.

BTI’s 16 channel CWDM solution with support for 10G wavelengths closes the cost and reach/capacity gap between CWDM and DWDM, delivering greatly increased capacity at much lower cost points. The BTI Netstender enables service providers to tap into CWDM capabilities to move beyond SONET and SDH architectures as their businesses scale.

BTI’s solutions are also environmentally hardened for Outside Plant (OSP) operations, meeting the Telcordia GR-3108 OSP requirement for extended temperature. BTI offers its CWDM solution in ultra-compact 1U and 2U designs, with up to 16 wavelengths of capacity that can be implemented in 4 wavelength increments. BTI’s Netstender has technical acceptance from the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) division of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certification.

“The price-for-performance of 10G 16 Channel CWDM will catapult its viability in the network, especially important for independent telephone companies and carriers that need to scale their network capacity quickly to meet the demand for new services,” said Pete Dale, Vice President Business Development, BTI Systems. “The ability to deploy CWDM in the Outside Plant is also critical, as GbE DSLAMs, PON and business services are driving the need for gigabit-speed backhaul out at the edge of the network.”
