Rochester, NY – September 27, 2019– Precision OT, a leading provider of optical transceivers and related active/passive optical components, announces the launch of its new, Bluetooth® enabled TN100-S-BT tuning box and corresponding mobile tuning application for its SFP+ optical transceivers. The product will make it simpler and more affordable for network operators to leverage Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technologies within their network architectures. Precision OT will be providing live demonstrations of its TN100-S-BT tuning box at booth #1325 during SCTE Expo, taking place in New Orleans September 30 through October 3, 2019.
“Managing the logistics of one’s optical networks can be a complex and cost-intensive business without both tunable transceivers and the technology required to tune them quickly and remotely,” says Todd Davis, CEO of Precision OT. “For a while now, Precision OT has been a part of the wider industry trend toward supporting the use of tunable optics. Already, our hallmark TN100-XS tuning box allows customers with a USB connection to a computer to configure our tunable SFP+ and XFP optics as desired. But now, we’ve gone one step further. In fact, customers with our SFP+ optics no longer need a computer connection to tune their equipment. Our newest tuning box, the TN100-S-BT, is Bluetooth® enabled, which means that, as long as technicians have the corresponding tuning app on their phone, they can set their optics to any of the standard ITU C-Band 50GHz or 100GHz channels of their choice – all on the go.”
Precision OT’s TN100-S-BT tuning module is approximately half the size of the company’s standard TN100-XS box. Each TN100-S-BT features an SFP+ port, making it a stellar choice for customers with optics from within that family. Customers can download the corresponding tuning application to their devices and begin tuning immediately.
Benefits of employing tunable transceivers with either the TN100-S-BT or TN100-XS tuning boxes include:
- Eliminates the sparing of hundreds of fixed channel CWDM/DWDM transceivers with one tunable optic
- Acquires tuning flexibility to any of the standard ITU C-band 50GHz or 100GHz spaced channels
- Offers a simple, user-friendly mobile application interface with Android and iOS compatibility
- Acquires new features without the need for software installation procedures or security concerns
