VPIphotonics is proud to present the new VPIlinkConfigurator Version 3.5, a versatile software tool for optical link engineering including automatic equipment placement and configuration and a thorough system wide performance assessment. It supports equipment configuration of complex networks including ROADMs and detailed performance calculation of true ring topologies.
Version 3.5 provides enhancements of the design workflow, graph view and user interface as well as the modeling of library devices.
VPIlinkConfigurator has proven to be beneficial in numerous commercial engineering projects. With the improved capabilities and usability enhancements provided in Version 3.5, it is set to deliver the same outstanding results in the future.
Improved Reporting macro to automatically allocate chassis and other necessary equipment (with minimized number of non-photonic items per node)
Enhanced Graph View to permit visualization of link and channel parameters
Separation of user configuration files from default product configuration files to make updates more convenient
Enhanced Lumped Raman Amplifier model to account for dependence of characteristics on fiber type within a single library item
New GainTilt parameter accounts for the spectral variation of an amplifier gain
User Interface improvements to simplify creation and maintenance of an item library and improve the design workflow
Existing demonstrations have been modified and new ones added to illustrate the functionality and applications of the new features and modules.
