Cloud connectivity, mobile broadband, high-definition video, and Internet of Things services continue to fuel the hyperscale bandwidth growth in metro optical transport networks.
These applications are the key catalysts that drive surging demand for high-capacity Data Center Interconnect (DCI).
Data center operators, Internet content providers, and service providers are challenged with the need to address the exponential traffic growth and consequently are expected to deliver high-capacity bandwidth to interconnect data centers by providing high-performance and cost-effective solutions that offer flexibility, simplicity, and ease of deployment.
The combination of OptiDriver® Optical Transport & DCI platforms with its new Digital Coherent CFP2 (CFP2-DCO) based 100G/200G modules provide the solution of choice for addressing the above challenges of data center operators and enabling the expansion of their metro network expansion with the delivery of Terabits of bandwidth capacity over high-speed optical links.
OptiDriver provides the following key benefits:
The miniature format of OptiDriver’s new 100G transponders and 200G muxponders outperform other industry solutions in high-service density and granularity.
More specifically, the high-density format of the 200G muxponders trade service granularity for exceptional density.
The entire OptiDriver solution including chassis and modules can be managed with MRV’s
Pro-Vision® Life Cycle Service Orchestration (LSO) service management and orchestration software platform.
OptiDriver and Open Line System (OLS)
The OptiDriver architecture supports OLS design. OptiDriver chassis containing OptiDriver 100G transponders and 200G muxponders can be combined with amplification, dispersion compensation, or OADMs and filters from other equipment vendors to create best-of-breed networks.
More specifically, OD-4-DCI optical transport capabilities and any of the higher capacity chassis like OD-12 or OD-16 that can accommodate OLS capabilities (amplifiers, DCM, Mux/DeMux, etc.) can be combined to provide high-density stackable solution.
Supports Layer 1 wire-speed, hardware-ready encryption with future software activation.
OptiDriver and Pluggable Optics
MRV offers wide range of pluggable transceivers that are standards and/or MSA compliant.
For metro & regional and DCI applications MRV provides (CFP2-DCO) pluggable transceivers solutions that offer higher density. Coherent Digital CFP2 are tunable single wavelength DWDM transceivers that incorporate advanced functionality including various coherent modulations formats and flexible SD-FEC capabilities. These features easily adapt our solutions to applications ranging from Data Center Interconnect and enterprise, to metro and long haul reach (rate dependent).
