Highly flexible wavelength routing



Dynamically add/drop selected DWDM wavelengths at any node in your network and  seamlessly change network capacity as needed.

  • Colorless, directionless, 50GHz and 100GHz grids.
  • Power monitoring and automatic power balancing
  • Optional EDFA booster/preamp
  • Optional internal 4/8 mux/demux, DCM and band splitters
  • Embedded optical supervisory channel (OSC) for remote management
  • Up to 8-degree ROADM
  • 10G/100G and 200G wavelengths;
  • Automatic channel restoration
  • Power monitoring on all channels


The PL-1000RO  Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer offers DWDM channel management based on advanced next generation wavelength-selective switch (WSS) technology.  The solution offers highly flexible wavelength routing capabilities suitable for mesh, ring, linear add/drop, core and edge DWDM network topologies. The PL-1000RO supports colorless, directionless and both 50GHz and 100GHz grids.

Service Flexibility

The user configures the PL-1000RO dynamically to add/drop selected wavelengths at any node in the network and can seamlessly change the network node capacity as needed. The device automatically equalizes and balances the power of the added and bypassed wavelengths.
The PL-1000RO simplifies network management and reduces operation costs (OPEX) by allowing fast deployment of new wavelengths remotely. The PL-1000RO fully integrates with PacketLight’s WDM product line.

User-friendly NMS

  • Deploy new services, control and monitor the optical network
  • Power monitoring for all channels
  • Up to 96 C-band channels
