Lumacron ships first Helios 4000 Wavelength Interceptors
We’re delighted to announce general availability of the Helios 4000 Wavelength Interceptor, bolstering the capabilities of our Zeus Survey Ecosystem. Supporting full-duplex DWDM access and monitoring, Helios 4000 offers 40 add/drop ports (20 EAST, 20 WEST) on 2 DWDM line-side connections with flexible grid WSS (6.25GHz channel spacing), integrated EDFA, and high-resolution Optical Channel Monitoring.
“Our customers don’t want to use massive ROADM mainframes to deliver carrier wavelengths for monitoring” said Alan McDade, CEO, Lumacron Technology. “Many of the OAM&P complexities associated with transport network deployment simply aren’t necessary in the context of network monitoring and signals intelligence – at Lumacron we can focus on what our customers really need, high density monitoring in 1RU, with an intuitive operator UI and an open REST API that works out of the box”.
Helios 1800 and 4000 appliances are shipping now. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an evaluation.
