On-The-Fly Transceiver Coding Made Easy

Posted by Jon Zatlokowicz on Mar 14, 2022

An Approved Networks OnePort Programmer with transceiver inserted

The OnePort Programmer from Approved Networks has always been conveniently small and portable with proprietary software that is both intuitive and easy-to-use.

Now, with the growing need for tunable and fixed channel 10G DWDM transceivers, the Approved Engineering and Product teams developed an application which allows customers to not only program 10G DWDM transceivers, but also tune them to a specific channel. This increase in demand for 10G DWDM transceivers has brought forth the need for our customers to have the ability to change the tunable transceiver platforms and the ability to tune themselves.

OnePort saves time and money
