Pirelli's tunable laser

Pirelli Broadband Solutions has added full L-band coverage (40nm/100 channels) to its tunable offerings, which include dynamically tunable laser (DTL), integrable tunable laser assembly (ITLA) and 300-PIN MSA transponders.

With an enhanced tunable offering for next-generation WDM networks, Pirelli's solutions are now suitable for metro networks in new markets such as Japan and countries in Latin America. All L-band solutions deliver the same functionality as their C-band counterparts, including built-in reliability, simplified network configurations and reduced systems costs.

At the core of the tunable portfolio is Pirelli's DTL is a Telcordia GR-468-CORE qualified and hermetically sealed in a 26-pin butterfly package, providing increased reliability, a smaller footprint and a significant reduction in optical network costs. The Pirelli ITLA allows telecoms operators to integrate tunability into their networks while reducing development costs and time to market. For further integration, Pirelli's 300-PIN MSA transponders, available in multiple optical interfaces (NRZ, negative-chirp NRZ and Duobinary formats), extend the reach of metro networks to 350km+.

"Adding L-band functionality to our tunable product offering is the logical next step in anticipating customer demands and addressing new markets, like Japan and Brazil," said Daniele Fadini, senior VP of sales for optical components and modules for Pirelli. "Reducing inventory, number of lambdas, providing one interface for all wavelengths, and offering flexibility in the optical layer are now achievable benefits for network operators using the L-band spectrum."
