What differentiates PacketLight WDM?

Carrier Grade Reliability

PacketLight Networks offers reliable, carrier grade CWDM, DWDM and OTN solutions that ensure access to business and critical data while protecting investment with scalable, pay-as-you grow architecture without service disruption, and carrier class service with guaranteed SLA (Service Level Agreement).

Rich High-end Feature Set

PacketLight’s unique, integrated (1U) architecture is carrier grade feature rich and allows scalability, manageability and ease of use and maintenance to support any WDM infrastructure from simple Point-to-Point networks to carrier class metro access rings and linear add-and-drop networks.

Flexibility and Scalability

PacketLight’s product suite offers multirate Transponders, Muxponders, Optical Amplification, pluggable optics and ROADM to provide unlimited flexibility to build a cost effective, scalable, highly efficient optical network infrastructure for carriers, enterprise campuses and data centers.

Compact, Low Power Consumption Solution

PacketLight products present the leading edge in small footprint WDM products. They have the highest port density in 1U footprint, thus decreasing the cost of space and power consumption, the two issues that are the biggest challenges for data centers and central offices.

Operate Your Network With Ease

PacketLight’s NMS/EMS LightWatch and the built-in free web based management tools provide remote configuration, performance monitoring, fault management, and ease of administration capabilities that enable a user to quickly adapt to the equipment without complicated education process.

Solutions that Provide Solid Savings

PacketLight’s modular design allows customers true pay-as-you-grow architecture to significantly decrease CAPEX. In addition, simplified operation and remote management eliminate high maintenance cost decreasing the overall OPEX of the organisation.
