Menara Networks Announces Customer Sampling of its 200G Coherent CFP-DCO Transceiver

LOS ANGELES--()--Menara Networks, an IPG Photonics business and a vertically integrated provider of IP/Ethernet DWDM transport solutions, today announced it is now sampling its Coherent CFP-DCO transceivers to selected customers.

Based on an advanced 16 nm Coherent Processor, Menara’s Digital CFP-DCO DWDM transceiver provides complete DWDM coherent transmission for 100G and 200G per wavelength in a CFP MSA form factor. It performs all necessary adaptive advanced modulation, digital signal processing for linear and non-linear fiber impairments compensation, G.709 compliant OTN framing, and a multitude of hard and soft decision based forward error correction encoders/decoders. Compatible with 100GE, CAUI, OTL 4.10, and OTL 4.4 interfaces, Menara’s Coherent CFP-DCO is full C-band tunable and supports ITU-T G.694.1 12.5 GHz Flexible Grid. With maximum versatility, it enables ZR, Data Center Interconnection, Metro and Long Haul applications.

"Menara’s Coherent CFP-DCO complements our 100G direct detection solution and provides state-of-the-art Coherent DWDM transmission capabilities in a CFP MSA,” said Dr. Salam ElAhmadi, Menara Networks CTO and co-founder. “It is based on an innovative modular design and offers a low power, rich feature-set that will benefit our customers and broadens their use-case for Coherent transmission at 100G and 200G.”

Menara Networks is showcasing its Coherent CFP-DCO transceivers live on a 250 km repeater-less fiber link featuring IPG Photonics industry leading compact hybrid EDFA/Raman Optical Services Transport Platform (OSTP) at Menara booth #3631 on the exhibit floor of this week’s Optical Fiber Communications from March 21-23, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Also showcased live at Menara’s booth is the company’s recently announced transceiver breakthrough of integrating C-band tunability, OTN framing and Forward Error Correction capabilities in a SFP+ transceiver MSA form factor.
