2016lwia 5 0 4cPowered by the Photonic Service Engine 2 based on SuperCoherent technology (PSE-2s), Nokia's 500G DWDM Muxponder for the 1830 PSS platform helps operators increase network capacity, simplify operations, and reduce costs by flexibly transporting up to five 100G services in a compact form factor. The muxponder offers seven unique modes of operation, enabling service providers to deploy common hardware from metro to ultra long haul, which simplifies sparing and provisioning.

The 500G DWDM Muxponder supports a variety of optical modulation formats, including DP-64QAM modulation to support single-carrier 400G, DP-8QAM for 200G, and 4-dimensional set partition QPSK (4D-SP-QPSK) for transcontinental 100G. The two-slot card supports two line ports with independently provisionable operating mode, fully tunable across extended C-Band. On the client side, 5xCFP4 clients support 100GBASE-LR4, 100GBASE-SR4, and OTU4. Nokia's WaveTracker technology offers end-to-end photonic OAM.Content Dam Lw Online Articles 2016 03 D5x500 Front 2

Judge's comment: "I believe this product will be the first for both dual-carrier PSE, single-carrier 400G, while in a reasonably dense footprint. It may also be the first commercial product to operate at 45 Gbaud."
