Part of Ribbon's optical networking portfolio, the TM400_2 leverages 400G ZR+, a disruptive technology that incorporates pluggables to deliver improved economics and flexibility. The TM400_2 delivers 400G optical transmission using standard and interoperable CFP2-DCO pluggables, optimized for transport over colorless/directionless/contentionless (CDC) ROADM networks, in either independent-wavelength or dual-carrier modes. Leveraging multiple wavelengths enables longer transmission distances than what embedded 800G solutions, often reliant on costly proprietary technology, can achieve with a single wavelength, says Ribbon.

Judge’s Comment: “Cable operators need increasing speeds to connect their hubs to one another. This product should provide a solution more suited to that application than larger traditional DWDM products.”
