- Hyper-scale density, integrating Infinera's photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology to deliver 500 Gbps of line-side superchannel bandwidth to deliver 1 Tbps of input and output capacity in just two rack units (RUs) while supporting a flexible combination of 10, 40, and 100 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) clients.
- Simplified operations via a rack-and-stack form factor and a flexible software approach to management.
- Plug n Play Efficiency, via seamless integration with Infinera FlexILS line system for long-reach applications using XT-500 and GMPLS automation.
- Low power per rack – less than half as much power per Gbps as traditional DWDM systems and less than many newer competitive systems.
Judge's comment: "With an impressively low power consumption of only 1 Watt per Gbps of WDM transmission, the DTN-X XT-500 delivers up to 21 Tbps of capacity in a single rack."
