24 September 1998 SYNAPSE: an access network WDM test bench
Author Affiliations +
SYNAPSE is a consortium of private companies and research centers associated in a pre-competitive effort to foster the development of new components, systems and applications likely to be needed in future transparent optical networks. It plans to deploy a high data rate DWDM-based test bench linking the Quebec, Rimouski and Montreal metropolitan areas to allow in situ validation of new components, sub-systems, network topologies and applications requiring large bandwidth. The scope and goals of this 5-year initiative, as well as technical aspects and distinctive features of the projected test bench, will be briefly reviewed in this article.
