TM-Series

The TM-Series is a family of packet-optical transport products. This carrier-class platform provides the transport of any service between 10Mb/s and 100Gb/s in metro and metro core networks. Services include Ethernet, MPLS-TP, OTN and SDH/SONET. Combining cost efficient increase of capacity with selective Ethernet functionality, it offers the optimal way of capitalizing on today’s and tomorrow’s demanding services.

With multi-dimensional scalability, the TM-Series’ products allow the packet-optical network to grow smoothly, both in capacity, size and functionality. Its modular design provides a valuable pay-as-you-grow approach. Integrated Ethernet capabilities in our Native Packet Optical architecture enables the TM-Series platform to offer advanced Layer 2/Layer 3 functionality reducing the need for expensive and complex equipment.

The TM-Series includes solutions for applications such as Mobile Backhaul, CATV/MSO Backhaul, Broadband Backhaul, Business Ethernet, Enterprise Networks and Core Networking.

TM-Series features and benefits include:

  • Seamless mix of CWDM and DWDM on fiber pair or single-fiber configurations
  • Flexible use of pluggable optics and configurable hardware
  • Wide range of ROADMs for cost efficient dynamic networking and key in Transmode’s Flexible Optical Networks
  • Native Packet Optical architecture providing selected Layer 2/Layer 3 features such as IGMPv3 and SSM
  • Superior Sync performance ideal for 4G and LTE applications
  • Industry leading Low Latency and jitter performance for latency critical applications
  • Low Power Design architecture – 75% energy savings compared to similar solutions
  • High Density Design providing networking solutions with leading density capabilities
  • Variety of options in reach (1-1500 km), number of wavelengths (incremental steps up to 80 channels), services per wavelength, traffic formats, capacity and chassis options
  • Managed with the Transmode Enlighten™ software suite for multi layer networks

TG-Series

The TG-Series is a family of cost-effective, passive optical WDM products. Designed for access applications, the TG-Series provides one of the most compact WDM access solutions on the market. The TG-Series fits in a wide range of applications, from controlled environments in central offices to street cabinets or even underground enclosures such as  manhole applications that require environmentally hardened products.

The TG-Series supports point-to-point, mesh, bus and ring-based network topologies and can be used in a number of network scenarios such as Fiber To The Curb (FTTC), Fiber To The Building (FTTB) and high-security access networks. The optical modules come in a variety of form factors, including rack-mounted modules for central offices and street cabinets. Modules ideal for use in harsh environments like manholes are also offered.

The TG-Series is fully compatible and interoperable with the TM-Series and the TS-Series as well as the Transmode Network Manager (TNM). This gives network operators a simple upgrade path to fully active WDM solutions. Combined with parts from the TM-Series, it forms Transmode’s iWDM-PON solution.

TG-Series features and benefits include:

  • Supports point-to-point, mesh, bus and ring-network architectures
  • Creation of spurs only containing the wavelengths specific to the add/drop node increases network security significantly
  • Single Fiber and Fiber Pair support extending the TG-Series flexibility and increase cost efficiency
  • Supports a wide range of deployments; from controlled central offices to underground chamber or manhole applications
  • Simple installation and commissioning
  • Highly adaptable to specific customer requirements
  • No need for power nor software due to the passive design reducing cost and environmental impact
  • Compact filter housing with 1u and 3u racks

Enlighten

Enlighten is a multi-layer management suite for managing Transmode optical and packet-optical transport networks. With its extensive set of capabilities, Enlighten helps network operators carry out the day-to-day activities associated with managing their transport network and services. Enlighten’s full lifecycle approach provides operators with a set of tools for planning, deploying and operating the transport network in a cost effective and simple manner.

To cater for the growing need for capacity and more sophisticated transport services, packet-optical based networks are increasingly becoming the transport network of choice. Enlighten ads to the benefits of packet-optical networks by introducing features designed for management of such networks. With a single, integrated management system for multi-layer networks faults are identified quicker, troubleshooting made easier and resolution time is reduced significantly. This helps meeting Service Level Agreements.

Enlighten features and benefits include:

  • Provides service and network management throughout the full lifecycle with integrated planning, deployment and tools
  • Reduces truck rolls due to centralized commissioning of amplified links and software upgrades
  • Reduces resolution time and improves SLA delivery due to automatic correlation of alarms from different layers
  • Faster provisioning due to point-and-click based service provisioning and activation
  • Real-time visualization of service quality in an SLA dashboard
  • Ecosystem partners for complementing functionality
