Metro Optical

Cost, space, power, and scalability

Lumentum solutions address the evolving challenges of modern metro networks. Our products include TrueFlex transport modules and subsystems, optical transceivers, tunable transmission modules, and passive components.

Our TrueFlex colorless/directionless (CD) and colorless/directionless/contentionless (CDC) ROADM architectures are key enablers towards the goal of realizing a scalable and dynamic network. Functional integration—a holistic approach that brings together diverse transport functionality such as optical switching, amplification, and monitoring onto a single high-density line card such as the ROADM-on-a-Blade—helps you realize the full potential of your network.

Our whiteboxes offer users the flexibility of constructing their own need-based transport systems using standalone photonic-layer building blocks that are independently addressable and controllable through standardized APIs.

We offer the broadest range of tunable transmission products including a narrow linewidth integrable tunable laser assembly (ITLA), a dual-channel intradyne coherent receiver (ICR), a 40G DP-QPSK coherent transponder, and a wide range of tunable XFP and world-leading tunable SFP+ products. 

Lumentum’s variety of pluggable transceivers and optical components meets the needs of the diverse data-rate and reach requirements for your dynamic networking solutions, helping you adapt to the ever-changing needs of users.
