The Apollo 9901X makes provisioning L1 business services easy. Rather than mapping multiple colored interfaces onto a ring using muxponders, it supports all services on a single 100G wavelength. L1 services connect to the 9901X via low-cost gray interfaces, and are added to the ring traffic under software control.
