Optical Technologies that can grow with your need for Speed

MWFN offers a range of optical technologies to meet the ever-evolving requirements of enterprise customers. Our Optical Ring Services deliver resilient, flexible, manageable, and scalable network solutions. MWFN can custom design a unique solution to meet the particular requirement.

Integrated Optical Service

Integrated Optical Service combines DWDM, SONET, and packet technologies into a single network that supports TDM, Ethernet, storage, video, and mainframe applications. Through the use of Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) nodes, Integrated Optical Service offers the latest innovations in optical networking technology.

Dedicated Wavelength Ring (DWR) Service

DWR is an optical service based on Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology. Designed as a survivable ring architecture that allows customers to add and drop various services or channels at each service location. Dedicated Wavelength Ring Service is a resilient optical transport service that delivers more robust transport networks and increased operational efficiency. By transporting high-speed data protocols over a single fiber pair, DWR meets your demand for a scalable, converged network.

Building Better Optical Networks

Your enterprise demands a highly reliable, resilient, and flexible data transport network that can handle bandwidth demands and help control capital costs. Integrated Optical Service is the ideal solution. Robust and highly survivable, it is secure enough to transport your mission-critical voice, data, Ethernet, storage, and video applications, and powerful enough to handle various high-bandwidth applications that require LAN/WAN and SAN connectivity.

Converged Technologies on Resilient Architecture

Based on the latest in optical networking technology, Integrated Optical Service converges wavelength, SONET, and packet technologies into a single delivery architecture. A highly scalable service platform, which can carry traditional voice, data, and video applications, and supports, interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SONET, SDI, and HD-SDI.

The Ethernet Packet Ring Service (EPRS) Option

EPRS combines the multipoint capabilities of Ethernet switching with the resiliency inherent in Integrated Optical Service. Structurally sound, with the redundancy to help avoid service loss, our ring architecture is designed to have no single point of failure.

Reliable Support for Multiple Applications

Built on a self-healing architecture providing exceptional network reliability, Integrated Optical Service can be used to construct network backbones to handle high-speed, high-volume voice, video, data, Ethernet, and SAN applications. Supported technologies include TDM, ATM, frame relay, SONET, Ethernet, fiber channel, and digital video.
