PacketLight Networks Delivers 400G per Wavelength with the New PL-4000T Transponder/Muxponder Platform

Product News: Benefit from 400G Standards-based, Cost-effective, High Capacity Transport Solution for DCI, Metro and Long-haul Applications

PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of DWDM/OTN and optical fibre networking solutions, has released the PL-4000T transponder/muxponder. The solution delivers any mix of 100GbE, OTU4 or 400GbE services over 400G wavelengths for high capacity DCI, metro, and long-haul applications for service providers, enterprise, campus, government, and cloud computing networks.

The PL-4000T modular, standards-based device increases network capacity and enables flexible pay-as-you-grow architecture by delivering either a 4x100GbE muxponder or 1x400GbE transponder per slice using pluggable optical modules. In addition, the PL-4000T strengthens data security by supporting Layer-1 encryption based on GCM-AES-256 standards and Diffie-Hellman (DH) Key Exchange.

“We are focused on our customers’ needs to expand their networks faster than ever by providing them with the benefits of our latest technology,” says Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight Networks. "Our solution enables migration to 400G networks with optimal cost and performance while supporting the OIF ZR, OpenZR+, and Open ROADM standards.”

The PL-4000T supports standard MSA pluggable modules QSFPDD, CPF2-DCO, and QSFPDD-DCO, and industry standard OFEC and CFEC. The modules reduce power consumption by more than 70 percent and improve port density per 1U compared with existing proprietary, bulky solutions on the market.

The solution integrates EDFA, mux/demux, and an optical switch for fiber protection, delivering the entire DWDM/OTN end-to-end infrastructure solution in a 1U form factor. The PL-4000T provides a full demarcation point between the 100GbE, OTU4, and 400GbE client service and the DWDM and is interoperable with any third-party vendors’ switches and routers.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
