200G muxponder/ transponder/ ADM for short haul transport and Layer-1 encryption



200G muxponder/transponder/ADM  for short haul optical transport systems that supports a variety of protocols at multiple rates and features Layer-1 encryption.

  •  Muxponder, transponder, and ADM in just 1u
  • Dual pluggable QSFP28 interfaces for uplink and client
  • Layer-1 GCM-AES-256 based encryption
  • In-band or out-of-band optical supervisory channel (OSC)
  • Supports standard MSA pluggable SFP+ (8G/10G/16G/32G client), QSFP+ (40G client), QSFP28 (100G client) and  QSFP28 (100G uplink)
  • Supported clients:
    • 10G/40G/100G LAN
    •  8G/16G/32G Fibre Channel
    • STM-64/OC-192
    • OTU2/OTU2e, OTU4


Provides modular and cost-effective high transport capacity of up to 200G by aggregating multiple services into dual 100G OTU4 uplinks. The solution is low power consumption and saves rack space, reducing overall CAPEX and OPEX, and enabling users to easily and cost effectively increase capacity of short haul networks. The unit can also function as a standalone 200G encryption machine for any mix of the featured client services.

PacketLight LightWatchTM NMS.

PacketLight LightWatchTM multi-platform Java-based network management system (NMS) is an essential tool for effectively managing, configuring, and monitoring fiber optic networks.

PacketLight’s NMS provides comprehensive visibility and control over network infrastructure, enabling administrators to ensure optimal network performance, security, and reliability. The NMS enables administrators to monitor the equipment on the network, track traffic, detect and resolve issues, and configure network devices remotely.

The system collects and analyzes network data, and generates valuable insights and reports that are central in decision-making and troubleshooting. By centralizing network management tasks and automating routine processes, the NMS streamlines operations, enhances efficiency, and reduces downtime. It serves as a critical component in maintaining a robust and resilient network infrastructure in today's mission-critical landscape.
