Alcatel-Lucent WaveStar® OLS 1.6T

The Alcatel-Lucent WaveStar OLS 1.6T, Alcatel-Lucent’s core DWDM system, provides high capacity along with reliable performance. Its flexible, cost-effective design offers a fully open architecture to operate in multi-vendor environments.

Delivering up to 1.6Tb/s capacity over a single fiber, this leading long-haul optical line system minimizes costs per terabit/kilometer and helps improve operating efficiency. Its modular design supports a simultaneous mix of data channels—from 100Mb/s to 10Gb/s—over one fiber from a variety of equipment manufacturers, and offers flexibility, low operating costs, and reliable performance.

  • Open architecture that supports multi-vendor signals
  • Support for any mix of signals, 100Mb/s to 2.5Gb/s, in the same system
  • Strong forward error correction
  • System reach up to 1020 km, with extended spans using Raman amplification
  • Small footprint (1 bay = 64 channels) with low cost of growth
  • Minimal power consumption
