1.6T high capacity platform for data centre interconnect, cloud and colocation providers



Modular and cost-effective solution for rolling out 100G services or increasing existing network capacity. The device has four 400G pluggable drawers and pluggable optical modules, delivering up to 1.6T in a 1U chassis, and enabling pay-as-you-grow architecture.

  • Provides full demarcation point between the service and the uplink DWDM side and is interoperable with any third party switch or router
  • Supported clients: 100G LAN, OTU4
  • Provides full visibility and performance monitoring of both line optical transport layer (OTN) and service interfaces 100G LAN/OTU4
  • Remote management with in-band GCC, or out-of-band OSC
  • CFP2 ACO tunable DWDM for 100G/200G line interface
  • QSFP28 SR4/ER4/LR4/CWDM4 for 100G client interface
  • Dual pluggable power supply units AC/DC
  • Easy maintenance with field-replaceable parts
