The PL-4000T Transponder/Muxponder 1U Platform delivers 4x400G wavelengths, increasing network capacity and enabling pay-as-you-grow architecture. The solution supports standard 400G pluggable QSFPDD-DCO and CPF2-DCO uplink modules, as well as Open ROADM, Open ZR+, and ZR standards that enhance 400G networks with optimal cost and performance, reduced power consumption, and improved port density.

Judge’s comment: “One of the first solutions for 400G-ZR and ZR+. Integrated EDFA, mux/demux and optical switch is a bonus."
