Own The Link

Cost Savings Calculator

The Own the Link Cost Calculator compares the cost of various Layer 1 optical links. The cost of all the components (transceivers, cabling, patch panels, connectivity) are summed, normalized to one link, and divided into the data rate. The result is a Layer 1 value presented as $/Gb per port. This allows for a direct comparison of the design options.
