How do DWDM and OTN devices lower power consumption?

Low power consumption reduces costs, ensures low heat dissipation, less electromagnetic flux, and is environmentally friendly, all of which prevent damage to the operations and communications systems. With operators and data centers looking for ways to save costs, DWDM/OTN equipment manufacturers are responding with:

  • Green technology - High-efficiency components that consume less power with high-level system integration.
  • Smart cooling systems - Precise, automated fan speed control to regulate the device to the required temperature, save power, and reduce noise.
  • Consumption as you grow - Add optical modules and change power consumption only when needed and activated.
  • Power and footprint - Utilize the latest components, such as optics and DSPs, to reduce power consumption per bit.
