The OP‐X1 reuses line cards from OP‐X4, the large chassis model of the family. It has a single service slot for these line cards, which include 4 x 100GbE CFP2, hybrid 10/100GbE, and high‐density 10GbE port line configurations. The system can be installed in multiple deployment scenarios and applications including as a 100GbE access device/NID for offering premium 100G services to data Center tenant or high‐end enterprises.
The OP‐X1 provides innovation in both hardware and software dimensions:
- Hardware innovations include front‐to‐back ventilation with horizontal card placement and distributed SDN architecture provided by an industry‐standard single board computer (SBC) deployed on the line card.
- Software innovations ensure that the OP‐X 1 is a solid foundation for the revolution in network design coming with SDN/NFV. The OP‐X1 offers programmability alongside APIs based on OpenFlow and Netconf protocols and is fully integrated into MRV's Pro‐Vision service orchestration and management system, enabling seamless operation in a mixed environment.
Judge's comment: "With its flexible mix of 100G and 10G Ethernet interfaces, coupled with 800G of switching capacity, the OP-X1 enables bandwidth expansion to a wide range of customers."
