Optelian Introduces TMX-2200 100/200G Transponder/Muxponder

Robust design is ideal DWDM transport solution for 100 GbE or OTU4 services

February 13, 2018Ottawa, ON/Roswell, GA — Optical networking solution provider Optelian introduces the TMX-2200 transponder and muxponder, allowing 100 GbE and OTU4 services to be transported over DWDM at a fraction of the cost.
Optelian’s TMX-2200 is an ideal DWDM transport solution for 100 GbE or OTU4 services. It interfaces to standard 100G SR4 or LR4 client optics, and incorporates a CFP2-DCO pluggable line interface with a software programmable DWDM modulation format that can operate in 100G DP-QPSK or 200G DP-16QAM mode.
Up to two 100G 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-2200 provides significant fiber relief opportunities in point-to-point applications, and is ideally suited for data center interconnect (DCI) and wholesale transport of 100G services.
“The challenge for us was designing a best-in-class transponder and muxponder that achieves the transport capacity of a leading-edge DCI solution, while also providing the reliability, wider operating temperature and much smaller depth expected for telco-grade networking equipment,” said Scott Agnew, vice president of R&D, Optelian. “We pride ourselves in designing robust, high-quality products that are built to last for decades in the toughest environments, and we are confident we have once again succeeded in that endeavor with the TMX‑2200.”
The TMX-2200 has undergone NEBS qualification and is now available to all customers.
Optelian is exhibiting at OFC 2018 in San Diego, March 13-15 in booth 3748.
