DiCon Fiberoptics Releases New Optical Channel Monitor Ideal for DWDM Networks

Richmond, CA—DiCon Fiberoptics is pleased to present its new Optical Channel Monitor (OCM) for use in DWDM networks. Based on DiCon’s MEMS Tunable Filter, the Optical Channel Monitor offers superior optical performance and features proven MEMS durability and reliability.

DiCon’s Optical Channel Monitor supports a standard 88 channels with options to cover 96, and is suitable for either 50 or 100 GHz channel plans. Its wavelength range is customizable, covering both C and L band applications and any combination of 10 and 40G bit optical channels. The OCM is voltage controlled and can scan continuously with a scan speed of 250 ms or hold a particular park state position.

“With the growth of Reconfigurable Optical Networks, our Optical Channel Monitors provide a highly reliable, durable and low-cost monitoring solution for our customers,” said Jarlath McElroy, DiCon’s Director of Sales. “Featuring a compact 70mm x 106mm x 10.8mm footprint, customers have the option of integrating a 1xN MEMS Fiber Optic Switch to provide the flexibility of monitoring up to 12 separate points in a network node without changing the form factor.”

The Optical Channel Monitor is an optical subsystem that scans DWDM networks and reports the power of each channel in real time. Feedback from the Optical Channel Monitor can be used to optimize power levels, identify performance drift, and verify system functionality. An extension of DiCon’s proven MEMS product line, the Optical Channel Monitor offers the same durability, repeatability, and stability as DiCon’s MEMS Tunable Filter,1xN Fiber Optic Switch, and Variable Optical Attenuator.
