Optical Supervisory Channel OTDR SFP Transceiver Receives High Scores in Lightwave Innovation Awards.
Los Angeles, CA – July 10, 2014 — Optical Zonu Corporation (OZC), a designer and manufacturer of innovative fiber optic networking solutions, announced today that its Optical Supervisory Channel SFP Transceiver with Built-In OTDR was recognized among the best in the industry by the judges of Lightwave’s Innovation Awards. The Awards panel consisted of industry experts from component and subsystem providers, system OEMs, carriers and analysts.
“Congratulations to Optical Zonu on an outstanding 4.5 Diamond score in the first annual Lightwave Innovation Awards,” said Lightwave Publisher Ernesto Burden. “Optical Zonu’s team should be very proud of this excellent showing in this highly competitive program. This score, based on an unbiased assessment from our judges, indicates that the Optical Supervisory Channel SFP Transceiver with Built-In OTDR is at the forefront of technology innovation.”
Optical Zonu created the iSFC SFP transceiver with built-in micro-OTDR to help major carriers and other end users save millions of dollars in operating expenses, SLA compliance fees, and lost opportunities. Thanks to its automatic fault-detecting and fault-finding capabilities, it significantly cuts the need for truck rolls and/or expensive OTDR expertise. The built-in OTDR works by automatically running reflection tests when a fault is detected, then sending the reflection and location results via SNMP to the host switch. This new version simply runs those tests solely on an optical supervisory channel outside of data-transmitting DWDM channel band.[button align=”left” link=”http://www.opticalzonu.com/sfc/otdrsfc/” color=”red” textColor=”#FFFFFF”]More info on iSFC Transceiver >>[/button]
