Conquering the Challenge of In-Band OSNR Measurement in Modern Networks

Octubre 27, 2016

Date/Time: Thu, Oct 27, 2016 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CDT


Measuring Optical Signal-to-Noise-Ratio (OSNR) in live Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems using polarization multiplexed transmission (Pol-Mux) is an unsolved challenge. In this webinar, our global product line team of Wolfgang Moench, Jon Lundberg, Tyler VanderPloeg and Doug Clague will present and discuss a novel solution for the problem of OSNR measurement in coherent, polarization-multiplexed traffic.

Topics include:

  • Characterizing and diagnosing 40 to 400G traffic without shutting down the network or individual channels
  • Measuring in-service, in-band OSNR on pol-mux signals
  • Measuring per channel, in-service, chromatic dispersion
  • Supporting legacy traffic as well as upcoming modulation and optical spectrum management schemes

We look forward to an engaging webinar!
