Come and visit our stand to learn how to Get More Out of Your Existing Fiber Infrastructure …

The increasing requirement for new services to be deployed in a prompt, flexible and cost effective manner has driven the need for a new approach in fiber optic services. ProLabs High Density CWDM transceivers offer the capability to effectually double circuit capacity over existing CWDM infrastructure, reducing time and expense. Network operators can gain the benefits of overlaying new services on existing fiber optic networks without the capital investment associated with adding new fiber or purchasing new network equipment. By utilising each channel individually for bidirectional transmission, you can leave existing infrastructure in place, only replacing transceivers at each output point. Our fiber experts will be available at our exhibition stand to discuss your company’s needs, and give live demonstrations of how ProLabs HDCWDM transceivers can improve your business. This is ideal for expanding building & campus networks, carrier Ethernet and wireless backhaul/fronthaul - all using your existing core infrastructure.
