Optelian unveils DA Series 1RU disaggregated optical platform

Oct. 20, 2020
Leveraging the company’s TMS-1190 optical transport system and a range of modules, the DA Series will support multi-service, multi-haul transport upgrades, remote business services access, and fiber-deep architectures.

Optelian today introduced its DA (Deploy Anywhere) Series disaggregated optical platform technology. Leveraging the company’s TMS-1190 optical transport system and a range of modules, the DA Series will support multi-service, multi-haul transport upgrades, remote business services access, and fiber-deep architectures in a compact and hardened (OSP-compliant) platform, the company says.

The TMS-1190, designed with a shallow depth and 1RU height, supports up to four service slots for OSP-compliant transponders, muxponders, and open line system configurations that can be mixed and matched as requirements warrant. The IMS-1190 operates as a single chassis or in a stacked configuration, supporting requirements from 1G to 1.6T.

Optelian’s first DA Series module, the TMX-4400, supports DWDM transport of 100/200/400GbE or OTU services in “anyhaul” applications. It interfaces a 100G to 400G QSFP28/DD on the client side and a CFP2-DCO on the line side with software-programmable DWDM modulation. Supported interfaces include those based on OpenZR+, CableLabs, and Open ROADM specifications.

“Demand continues to grow for flexible, high-bit-rate, compact and disaggregated transport equipment. We are excited to roll out both the TMS-1190 platform and its family of OSP-capable 100G to 800G multi-rate transponders – each providing reliability, flexibility and extended operating temperature in a compact form factor,” said Scott Agnew, CTO, Optelian. “This platform promises to improve overall cost per bit in any deployment environment without sacrificing optical transport performance parameters.”
