Optelian’s TMX-4400 transponder, deployed in a DA Series™ TMS-1190 platform, is an ideal, “pay-as-you-grow”, compact DWDM transport solution for 100G-400G services. The transponder is efficiently designed for multi-market Deploy Anywhere™ end-to-end transport architectures. It interfaces to standard QSFP28/DD 100G-400G client optics, and incorporates a CFP2-DCO pluggable line interface with a software programmable DWDM modulation format that can operate in multiple line modes. Client services can be transported over a single DWDM wavelength with optional physical layer encryption. It provides full client- and line-side performance monitoring for clear service demarcation, fault localization, and SLA assurance.
The TMX-4400 provides efficient transponding and DWDM transport for 100GbE-400GbE and/or OTUCn client services. The TMX-4400 incorporates a pluggable CFP2-DCO with a software programmable modulation format, and fully-integrated coherent transceiver, including DSP. The line signal can be set to CFEC or SCFEC for the longest possible reach, or OFEC for interoperability.
It can be used for point-to-point DWDM links of various distances depending on modulation and associated link budget, or provide all-optical transmission over 1000 km or more in amplified systems. Integrated physical layer encryption capabilities are also available.
