200G multi-rate muxponder/transponder/ADM for Metro Applications



This is the smallest and most integrated transport solution of its kind, reaching up to 200km/42dB without intermediate sites and 2500km with inline sites. A powerful 200G multi-protocol multi-rate muxponder/transponder/ADM solution for building high capacity optical transport networks.

  • Enables the same device to be used in multiple applications and adapt to network growth and changes
  • Multiple user-configurable operation modes: muxponder, transponder and ADM
  • Layer-1 GCM-AES-256 based encryption
  • Flexible OTN cross connect
  • Dual pluggable CFP2 coherent tunable DWDM line interfaces
  • Supports various client services, allowing easy migration from current to future services without replacing the unit
  • Comprehensive line and service performance monitoring
  • Dual AC or DC pluggable power supply and pluggable fan unit
  • Supports standard MSA pluggable SFP+ (8G/32G client), QSFP+ (40G client), QSFP28 (100G client) and CFP2 (uplink)
  • Integrated EDFAs, mux/demux, and optical switch
