Padtec Terabit OTN Muxponder

March 17, 2015
The Terabit OTN Muxponder is an ultra-dense standalone optical transport system that provides connectivity up to 1 Tbps in a single 1RU chassis and uses under 750 W total power per box.
The solution leverages the latest subsystem technology (16QAM format to transmit 200G/wavelength from a CFP2) to transmit the 1 Tbps from a 1RU chassis, with room left to accommodate 10 QSFP modules for the 100G client connections. This results in 2.5X the next highest marketed capacity. Judge's Comment.

The Terabit OTN Muxponder is an ultra-dense standalone optical transport system that provides connectivity up to 1 Tbps in a single 1RU chassis and uses under 750 W total power per box. A 1RU high-cap approach enables a pay-as-you-go model so that a fully filled single standard rack can host 84 Tbps.

Using coherent 200G CFP2 line-side optics and 100GbE QSFP28 client-side optics, the Terabit OTN Muxponder allows five 200-Gbps line-side signals to groom ten 100 Gbps client signals. The chassis uses standards-based Ethernet over OTN to ensure maximum packet flows between remote data center nodes. Padtec says with this solution customers can support cloud environments and source their own optics.
