Introduction to Infinera G30 Optical Line System and G30 Muxponder Platforms
The exponential growth in traffic generated by applications such as 5G, smart cities and content providers creates a new challenge for operators on how to reduce the operational costs of their optical network while increasing the revenue of the services to be offered.
One technology that is growing in adoption is the disaggregation of the optical network components. The concept of optical disaggregation is focused on the way that an operator can select the components of a WDM system, as they no longer need to be from the same vendor. Adopting this new technology allows operators to have greater flexibility in choosing the components of their WDM network and no longer ties them to a single vendor.
This video explains in more detail the concept of optical disaggregation, its benefits and differences with the solution offered by Infinera known as Open Line System (OLS). We present the basic components of the Infinera G30 OLS and G30 Muxponder and their respective modules. Finally, we will show an example of a 4 node application.
