Supplied by Optical Fibre Trends cc

Optical Fibre Trends, the original OTN Systems supplier in South Africa and neighbouring sub-Sahara countries. With 24 years of experience with OTN and now Xtran. Supplying solutions to the Operational Technology markets – O.T. – for the Airports, Mining, Highways, Metro and Solar markets.

The latest variant of the OTN product, Xtran, is class-leading in what is capable in industrial networks. Switching networks with the capability of the MPLS-TP platform for seamless mesh and redundant networks. The Multiprotocol Label switching–Transport Profile protocol makes the deterministic requirement for O.T. networks simple and reliable. Still catering for legacy and various other protocols in one platform, with speeds ranging from 1Gbps all the way to 100Gbps. With chassis models ranging from 15 slots, XT-2215 to the compact 10 slots XTD-2110. The TXCare management platform is also putting your finger on the pulse of your operational network with continuous and live feedback on what is happening. This will help with faultfinding on vast networks.

The OTN XTran network systems is designed for the powerindustry, railway authorities and other heavy industries thatrequire an efficient packet-based infrastructure. XTran networknodes are designed with specific mechanics and performancevalues to build a reliable multiservice network and comply tointernational standards as well as to the most demandingenvironmental standards like IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613 and EN50121-4.
