Optical – Syncronous San Extension
Here’s the market-leading SAN Distance Extension solution.
1. high capital outlays
2. high recurring costs (leased fiber)
3. high points of failure
Here’s SmartOptics’ SAN Extension solution
1. minimal capital outlay
2. minimal recurring costs
3. minimal points of failure
Explanation: Solutions adhering to SmartOptics’ model will extend their SAN via a single WAN fiber pair through the use of a revolutionary ‘passive’ C/DWDM Mux/Demux’s unpowered appliance. This revolutionary appliance reduces the number of WAN fibers required to a single pair. Therefore, the capital expense on ‘active’ fbier switching equipment is kept to the theoretical minimum. Likewise, the loathsome recurring WAN lease fees are also kept to a theoretical minimum. Finally, since this solution relies on the theoretical minimum ‘active’ fiber link – the ‘points-of-failure’ are kept to a theoretical minimum.
