Optical Disaggregation and Open Line System Briefing

1 hour
Network operators face many challenges in scaling their optical infrastructure. Networks today need support for disaggregated architectures and open line systems (OLS) in order to expand their capacity. Additionally, there is an increasing need for automation and speed to market. Disaggregation of optical components allows operators to select which OEMs solution best fits their needs. Adopting this strategy allows for greater flexibility and agility when positioning multiple vendors solutions.


In this briefing, WWT subject-matter experts will discuss with you the capabilities and benefits of adopting an open line system (OLS) and optical disaggregation strategy. We will work with your key stakeholders to understand and help determine your specific needs, as well as a strategy to deploy and transition to a next generation optical solution.
