Smartoptics Solutions

Techgardens is a leading provider of optical networking solutions. We provide innovative, scalable, future-proof, cost-effective solutions and devices for the new era of open networking. Our solutions enable huge amounts of data traffic to be transported over a dark fiber network. We have partnered with Smartoptics to address the needs of a wide variety of customers, including power and utilities, enterprises, government and much more. As a leading systems integrator, Techgardens can facilitate your next infrastructure project utilizing top of the line products, engineering and solutions to address any needs you have. 

Metro & Enterprise Networks

With an open architecture the functionality of once monolithic optical transport systems can be disaggregated, using embedded transceivers, open line systems and Software Defined Networking (SDN) control, resulting in optimal price/performance. The benefits of open optical networking have already been leveraged for Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and other point-to-point applications, but open line systems are now increasingly also being required by operators for metro and regional networks with ring and mesh topologies.

To meet the diverse requirements of active open line systems, Smartoptics has introduced the Dynamic Connectivity Platform (DCP), supporting the optical networking needs of both enterprises and operators. Smartoptics offers everything to help you get more out of your fiber networks, including multiplexers and optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs) An optical multiplexer combines wavelength channels onto an optical transmission fiber.

OADM’s are used in WDM systems for multiplexing and routing fiber optic signals, selectively adding and dropping individual or sets of wavelength channels from a DWDM stream. Both give you more flexibility in terms of volume of traffic and type of data you want to transmit. 

Alien Wavelengths

Alien waves provide an easy, inexpensive and fast means for adding capacity to an existing system. With Smartoptics, we can provide an instant bandwidth upgrade without having to re engineer existing services.

Our alien wavelength solutions allow operators to free up ports on existing muxes and ROADMs for future capacity expansion.

Mobile Backhaul

Consumer demands for a richer internet experience, as well as emerging applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) and even autonomous cars, are driving a growing need for enhanced broadband communications capacity. Cable TV broadband providers with virtual CMTS architectures, mobile network providers with virtual access networks or Cloud RAN (CRAN) 5G networks and fixed network providers offering passive optical access (EPON) are all looking for smart ways to offer high-capacity connectivity to their end-users.

To meet these increasing bandwidth requirements and improve service delivery in the last mile of transport, many service providers are now opting for an architecture with network aggregation points closer to the subscriber. These aggregation points are then typically back-hauled to the metro or regional network over high capacity links in a “spine-and-leaf” architecture. As a result, today’s operators also need to incrementally upgrade the backhaul capacity in the “second level” of their access networks.

We provide both active backhaul solutions as well as CPRI-based fronthaul solutions. We provide cost-efficient solutions for both CWDM and DWDM channels making possible a broad range of multiplexing schemes in a single or dual fiber configuration.


If your business is heavily network centric, and you are migrating from 10G to 40/100G then our Smartoptics High Capacity Transceivers provide you the ability to significantly reduce your interfaces costs and potentially help shape your switching and routing platform decisions.
