The first five digits in the feature code of a fixed-wavelength OTU board indicate the wavelength. For example, 19300 indicates 193.00 THz.

Whether the MCA board can detect drifting wavelengths
The MCA board can detect the single-wavelength optical power, center wavelength, number of wavelengths on an optical channel, and OSNR. It cannot detect drifting wavelengths.

MCA and OPM boards that can detect the center wavelength
Optical spectrum analyzer boards provide in-service centralized monitoring of optical signals. The boards support the following optical signal counters: optical power, center wavelength/frequency, and OSNR. The supported optical signal counters vary according to spectrum analyzer boards.
