Optelian enters 100G market with MPX-9110

Optelian has thrown its hat into the 100-Gbps ring with its new MPX-9110 platform. The optical transport equipment developer touts the 1RU MPX-9110 as the most compact and efficient 100-Gbps option on the market.

Optelian has thrown its hat into the 100-Gbps ring with its new MPX-9110 platform. The optical transport equipment developer touts the 1RU MPX-9110 as the most compact and efficient 100-Gbps option on the market.

Operators can configure the new system as a muxponder or transponder. The MPX-9110 can aggregate and transport any mix of 10-Gbps, 40-Gbps, and 100-Gbps services over a 100-Gbps Optical Transport Network (OTN) DWDM wavelength. The platform also supports 40G and 100G wavelengths over existing infrastructure engineered for 10 Gbps.

Service aggregation options include 10x10G, 1x40G plus 6x10G, and 2x40G plus 2x10G. Client-side connections can be a combination of 10/40/100 GbE, OC-192/STM-64, 8/10G Fibre Channel, and OTU 2/3/4.

The 100-Gbps optical transmission capability takes advantage of DP-QPSK, coherent receivers, and forward error correction (FEC).

"Internet usage, driven by bandwidth-intensive video streaming and enhanced user connectivity via multiple devices, will surge in the coming years. Operators need innovative ways to leverage their existing infrastructure while increasing capacity,” according to Optelian CEO David Weymouth. “Our analysis indicates 100G offers a 30% cost-per-bit savings relative to 10G transport strategies. Optelian’s solution enables efficient scalability and supports the rapid deployment and management of new, revenue-generating services.”
