Higher bandwidth, larger capacity, and longer transmission distance requirements are driving customers to pursue a stable, efficient, and unified network that can cost-effectively scale. OTN network, as an ideal choice to meet these requirements, is gaining momentum in the market with enhanced network performance and reduced transport costs. Aiming at building user experience-centric next-generation network architecture, the FS multi-service WDM & OTN platforms fit and benefit your OTN system.
FS OTN solution enables high-speed carrier access networks to be faster, more cost-effective, and easier to manage, which provides a solid foundation to accommodate tomorrow's needs. FS elaborate OTN solutions, including every design, assembly, integration, testing, and delivery phase, are optimized for short haul, DCI, metro, and long haul network where flexibility, space and power are at a premium, ideal for campus, enterprises, carriers, and data centers.
FS optical transport network solution can support from 10G/25G to 100G/200G for metro network or long-haul network respectively. It provides not only a standardized but also a scalable solution with a complete product line — CWDM/DWDM Mux Demux, OEO Transponder, EDFA (Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier), DCM (Dispersion Compensation Module), OLP (Optical Line Protection), Optical Performance Monitoring (OPM), Red/Blue Filter Module, NMU cards, and managed chassis with 1U/2U/5U available choices.
Take a quick look at the figure below to get a brief understanding of FS Optical Transport Network Family first:
FMT series and M series are the two divisions of FS OTN product categories. Specifically, FMT series products that support 10G/25G networks are suitable for customers who have basic requirements. In addition to the existing functions of the FMT series, the M series can also be expanded and upgraded, supporting 100G/200G or even higher speeds and longer transmission, to satisfy the scalable network needs with higher requirements.
KEEP READING to dive into these two FS WDM & OTN solutions with separate characteristics.
FMT Series is a multiservice transport system featured by a high-density design and low insertion loss, which can optimize the network performance and deliver better services for customers. As an All-in-One transport system for metro networks, FS FMT platform makes devices like OEO, EDFA, DCM and OLP into small plug-in cards and provides standard rack units as well as user-friendly software to achieve better management and monitoring.
FS FMT Infrastructure covers FMT OEO/EDFA/DCM/OLP, DWDM Red/Blue Filter, Fiber Monitoring Modules, and Managed Chassis. They can be used together with FMU Mux/Demux to build a multifunctional WDM system with longer transmission distances.

High-Integration OTN System
1U management chassis is suitable to be applied where space, power, and environment are key considerations. FS FMT series 1U chassis that supports both DWDM and CWDM for both dual fiber and single fiber configurations and optical amplifiers, OEO, DCM and OLP modules are designed in a modular fashion to accommodate distance extension without service interruption.
High-Level Network Management
FS Network Management Unit (NMU/NMS) is developed with ARM9 control design. NMU/NMS provides full fault, configuration, performance, security management, and instant push emails. FMT monitoring online management software (a Java-based network management system) built with modular client uses the Microsoftware SQL Server 2008R2 database.

Q: The M6200 Series DCM module is completely passive, can I use it with the FMT Series?
A: It's not recommended to use the module in this way. M6200 series and FMT series cannot be used as a unified management platform, so the mixing use will be bad for the management operation experience.
Q: Is M6200 Series the update for the FMT platform?
A: No. The M6200 series is a new series, which is different from the FMT platform. M6200 series is managed via new NMS network management software with M6200 series managed chassis. FMT platform is managed via Monitor Online Software with FMT managed chassis.
Q: As the newer product line, what makes M6200 different from the previous FMT platform?
A: Take 10G OEO for example. The differences lie in the upgrade in rate, more ports, diversified work patterns, and management software:
Rate: the newer M6200 OEO is 100Mbps to 11.1Gbps, while the FMT OEO supports 1Gbps to 11.3Gbps
Ports: the newer M6200 OEO can transmit 5 channels while FMT OEO transmits 4 channels.
Diversified Work Patterns: M6200 OEO support Forward mode, Loopback mode, Freedom mode, 1+1 protection mode and Broadcast mode management while the FMT OEO support Normal, Loopback, and FC mode.
Management Software: M6200 OEO supports WEB and SNMP v2 management, while the FMT OEO supports Monitor Online and SNMP v1 management.
Q: We bought your M6500 platform before, just wonder whether it can be managed together with M6200 series?
A: Yes, they can be managed together since they both have the same NMS system which adopts B/S architecture. You can check the user manual for M series network management: https://img-en.fs.com/file/user_manual/m-series-nms-network-management-user-manual.pdf
Q: A question about SNMP. We use Zabbix for the monitoring of our infrastructure. Do you have some ready-to-use templates for that monitoring system?
A: Yes, that relevant template can be downloaded in resource column of product page. Please refer to this link for more configuration instructions: https://img-en.fs.com/file/user_manual/configure-zabbix-to-monitor-m-series-platforms-via-snmp.pdf
Q: Our project requires network transmission to be stable and reliable. Could you guys help me design for my new project?
A: Absolutely. FS well-designed OTN solution has an elaborate procedure including every design, assembly, integration, testing, and delivery phase. Our professional technical team for your customized WDM & OTN project, feel free to contact us!
