Metropolitan Networks

Metropolitan networks are designed to have the proper capillaries  to connect with efficiency and flexibility metropolitan regions creating multi service redundant optical links, which may use both ring and mesh topologies. Metro networks must be prepared to support never-ceasing traffic grooming from lower to upper rates in order to save resources, support the growing bandwidth demand and optimize business profitability.

LightPad i6400G platform provide DWDM nodes of several degrees with ROADM WSS and superior performance OTN transponders of rates from 2.5G to 100G. Medium capacity and compact OTN Switch, from LightPad OTS platform, are also ideal to metro networks, allowing low cost and reduced physical occupancy applications, still taking OTN protocol advantages to implement quality policies, traffic priorities and protection mechanisms.
