TeraLink introduces an innovative optical performance monitoring solution for the next-generation DWDM networks. TeraLink¡¯s ¡®Argos¡¯ series OPM can monitor not only the optical powers and wavelengths of DWDM channels, but also the ¡°true¡± values of OSNR.

TeraLink developed a unique solution to overcome this problem. Unlike other OPMs, our patented ¡®Polarization-Nulling¡¯ technique enables the Argos series OPM to monitor the ¡°true¡± OSNR even in a modern dynamic DWDM network.

Using Argos series OPM, the network operators can detect and then correct slowly degrading optical signals before disastrous failures and ensure the transmission quality of DWDM signal.
