Optical Channel Monitors – CTM Series

The CTM Series of optical channel monitors is ideal for original equipment manufacturers looking to achieve the necessary cost targets for embedded DWDM monitoring for ROADM, multi-haul and third-party wavelengths applications. These low-cost and ultra-compact optical channel monitors are ideal for use in closed-loop control of power-equalized channels. They offer the capability to monitor DWDM signals with arbitrary modulation formats on a flexible channel grid.

Optical Channel Monitors – OCM Series

The OCM Series of optical channel monitors are ideal for high-capacity multi-degree ROADM applications. They can be configured via software commands to operate in scanning or dwelling mode. In scanning mode, the OCM performs flexible-bandwidth channel monitoring function with fine frequency granularity using an integrated frequency reference. The rich set of spectral data resulting from one measurement is transferred over a high-speed serial peripheral interface (SPI) to virtually eliminate measurement latency. In dwelling mode, the OCM 2580 provides access to a high bandwidth photocurrent signal to enable advanced signal analysis on a selected channel.
