OTTAWA, ON/MARIETTA, GA — Optical networking solution provider Optelian announced an expansion of its portfolio for outside plant (OSP) environments, including a range of optical fiber amplifiers (OFAs) and dispersion compensation modules (DCMs), each supporting extended temperature operation. The addition of these products significantly broadens Optelian’s existing OSP solution.

Optelian solutions deliver services across regional, metro and local networks. Service providers choose Optelian for its expertise in delivering a portfolio of products for the optical transport market, its organizational focus on partnering with customers throughout the life-cycle of the network, and its full service implementation encompassing design, deployment, sustaining services and consulting capabilities. Optelian’s extensive portfolio of GR-3108 OSP-rated products includes the compact OMS-2190 shelf, the family of transponder/regenerator cards, the FLX-1610 muxponder, pluggable SFP, SFP+, and XFP modules, passive mux/demux shelves, and a full set of compact passive modules delivering splitter, mux/demux and OADM

Expanding WDM Footprint Across Entire Service Area
This new addition to the portfolio allows operators to further expand their WDM footprint across their entire serving area. Service providers are now able to extend their reach, deploy fiber to the premises (FTTx), interconnect communities, deploy mobile backhaul solutions, and support centralized RAN (C-RAN) and small cell CPRI-based interconnect in the metro. These revenue-generating deployments are made possible with Optelian’s OSP-rated products, the low acquisition cost, and low operational cost. The Optelian infrastructure is designed to operate without operator intervention or site visits, which is key to low total cost of ownership.

Optelian’s OFA-1700 and OFA-2000 series of amplifiers are now certified for extended temperature range operation. Optelian also offers its DMS family of passive dispersion compensation modules, packaged into the smallest enclosure available in the industry. These DCMs are compatible with 100 GHz and 50 GHz channel spacing, and with coherent and non-coherent transceivers. With the addition of these products, the portfolio provides a complete low-cost small-footprint solution for OSP applications.

These OFAs and DCMs join Optelian’s portfolio of NEBS-certified products. Network operators with Optelian’s NEBS and extended temperature rated products benefit from carrier-grade quality solutions in the CO, aggregation sites and remote locations, wherever service is required.
