Smartoptics is the only vendor whose complete end-to-end solutions are layer 1 tested by Brocade. Not just transceivers or multiplexers, but systems that allow intelligent long distance connectivity based on embedded CWDM/DWDM principles, without the need for expensive and complex stand-alone DWDM platforms. With Smartoptics embedded solutions Brocade users can connect as many SAN & WAN Internet switch links (ISLs) as required, independent of speed over a dark fiber network.

M-Series, world’s first intelligent distance extending DWDM multiplexer platform
The M-series from Smartoptics monitors each wavelength and detects if there’s a service interruption. It can simultaneously transport SAN and IP signals up to 500 kilometers between sites. M-Series can also be used as a passive multiplexer with management.
