e-TICS Optical Supervision DWDM Link (e-TICS OSup DWDM)
Mini Optical Spectrum Analyzer (MOSA II)
e-TICS OSup DWDM... connecting the dots
The Mini Optical Spectrum Analyzer (MOSA II) remotely monitors optical channels in the DWDM system, analyzing the DWDM layer performance by identifying, locating, and demonstrating problems and failures both at the sub-systems and physical elements. MOSA II performs optical power scans over the spectrum used by DWDM systems, monitoring optical channels in terms of their optical power, SNR (signal to noise ratio), and spectral deviation. It precisely evaluates the effects of intervention in optical networks, when the number of optical channels increases or when there is an increase in the transmission rate. MOSA II is available in a 1U and a 2U version, both fitting into a 19” rack.
MOSA II can be remotely accessed via e-TICS Optical Supervision (e-TICS OSup) DWDM Module, reading the optical spectrum of its ports, identifying the channels used for transmission of signal/data, and retrieving the SNR for the monitored channels. MOSA II then compares the results with DWDM parameters, such as: optical power of active element inputs and outputs, power per transmission and receiving channel (recovered from the vendor’s Element Management System), optical channels SNR, lambda, and spectral deviation. Results of the analysis are presented both via graphical (spectrum) and textual views.
