Scaleable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system
The LambdaDriver® series is a multi-functional, compact modular Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system capable of providing exceptional solutions for comprehensive and elaborated optical networking. With its flexible architecture and outstanding variety of optical networking modules and chassis the LambdaDriver® platform is ideally suited for any market segment from Enterprise Access, Metropolitan Carriers and Service providers networks to Long Haul transport capabilities. The products support different network topologies such as PTP, Linear OADM and Ring using DWDM and CWDM technology. The supported data rates vary from 8 Mbps up to 10 Gbps with seamless upgrades to 40 Gbps.
As new technologies and equipment evolve and abound, businesses and service providers must respond to growing traffic and service requirements while reducing power consumption, size, and overall cost. The LambdaDriver® modular series delivers astounding results to businesses and operators that need to maximize the bandwidth and service flexibility of their networks, while creating new revenue opportunities through high-speed Ethernet, SONET/SDH optical rings and SAN services.
The LambdaDriver® series chassis include three compact chassis, LD 400, LD 800 and LD 1600, 19-inch rack mountable chassis with modular architecture and hot-swappable modules that can be selected to meet network and service requirement. The LambdaDriver® all-inclusive transparent access interfaces (transponders) are single slot modules that supports all data centric protocols, enabling businesses and service providers to mix all the protocols in a range of 8 Mbps and 10 GE, including SONET/SDH, Ethernet, Video (SDI/ASI), Voice (E1/T1) and Storage (SAN) applications.
Having more than 15 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of fiber optic systems and network infrastructure equipment, MRV has earned a world-class reputation as optical transport innovators. MRV was the first to use multimode extension (MMX) technologies and CWDM with 16 wavelengths multiplexing. MRV was the first to develop SDI interfaces in the SFPs (Small Factor Pluggable) format. The unique optical-layer design of MRV's equipment supports in-service migration of CWDM to DWDM throughout the entire chassis range. The flexibility of MRV's products, combining CWDM and DWDM, advanced TDM multiplexing, and all-inclusive optical cards designed for pluggable optics (SFP/XFP) interfaces, offers service providers a lower initial cost, allowing for starting with fewer channels units, while ensuring simple system upgrades or future network reconfigurations, and keeping minimal spares inventory and maximum end user flexibility.
