Smartoptics passive embedded xWDM (wavelength division multiplexing) systems require no power, emit no noise and only need 1U of space in the equipment rack. At the heart of our solutions is a multiplexer capable of combining up to 80 traffic channels together over a fiber pair. It’s passive. That means the device requires no maintenance so operational expenditure is limited to a spare part that can be held locally.

Transporting huge amounts of data without having to use complicated and expensive telecom-based transponder systems means that the cost is a fraction of competing technologies.
