We just introduced a new 200G optical transport solution for data center interconnect (DCI) and telecom applications! What do the new 200G muxponders bring to our OptiDriver WDM optical transport portfolio? To name a few benefits, data center operators, communication service providers and enterprises will benefit from simplified network design, reduced stranded chassis space, reduced sparing requirements and minimized learning curves.
Based on digital coherent technology, the new offering enables a complete solution, ranging from 100G transponder module to the 200G muxponder modules, all in miniature form factor to optimize service density and reliability. Furthermore, the 200G muxponders pass with flying colors in regards to high-service granularity, meaning that the failure of a module only affects the service to one port. And if you happen to be wondering how energy efficient the new transponder and muxponders are, you’ll be pleased to know they are particularly energy efficient with between 0.16 and 0.25 watts/Gb, making them the highest power efficiency in the industry.
“MRV is advancing flexible solutions for DCI and telco applications alike,” added Tim Doiron, Principal Analyst for ACG Research. “With the introduction of multiple next-generation 100G and 200G coherent DWDM transponders and muxponders for their unique, modular architecture, MRV is helping service providers in four essential areas: lower power, pluggable versatility, wire-speed encryption capability and simplified operations.”
Additionally, the ultra-high bandwidth modules can be used in combination with other modules in our OptiDriver portfolio including optical add/drop multiplexers (OADM), multi rate and multiprotocol transponders, dispersion compensation, ROADMs, optical multiplexers, and amplifiers, giving service providers the ultimate flexibility.
