Movaz Network RAY(TM) Product Suite The RAY(TM) product suite contains six products: RAYexpress(TM), a fixed 40 channel optical add/drop multiplexer; RAY- ROADM(TM), a reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer; RAYstar(TM), an integrated transport and switching platform; RAYextender(TM), a family of Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers, Raman Amplifiers and Variable Gain Amplifiers, iWSS(TM), an NxN wavelength-selective switch; and RAYtracer(TM) /RAYo/s for automated network management.
A better cost-for-performance amplifier is the result--one that can amplify, as an example, more than 8-channels at 10 Gb/s over the entire C-band without the high price that accompanies Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFAs), and without the need for expensive gain flattening filters, laser pump hardware or transient control circuitry.
