A large public research university discovered that the bandwidth it had budgeted throughout their network would be unable to support their goals and initiatives going forward. Their medical and engineering colleges wouldn’t be able to participate in prestigious projects that require high-speed data transfer. At the same time, engineers noticed increasing congestion in the links between dormitories and data centers.
Champion ONE provided a complete, end-to-end passive solution featuring DWDM transceivers, passive filters, and amplifiers for the network ring connecting two data centers with a local service provider facility. Each data center held two 40 channel DWDM mux/demuxes and two amplifiers. The local service provider held an 8 channel DWDM OADM to drop off 8 services.
