DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 CFP2-DCO transceivers to selected customers.
Based on an advanced 16 nm Coherent Processor, Menara’s Digital CFP2-DCO “system-in-a-module” provides complete DWDM coherent transmission for 100G and 200G per wavelength in a CFP2 MSA small form factor. It performs all necessary adaptive PM-QPSK and PM-QAM 16 modulation, digital signal processing for linear and non-linear fiber impairments compensation, G.709 compliant OTN framing, and a multitude of hard and LDPC-based soft decision forward error correction encoders/decoders. Compatible with 100GE, CAUI, OTL4.10, and OTL 4.4 interfaces, Menara’s Coherent CFP2-DCO is full C-band tunable and supports ITU-T G.694.1 6.25 GHz Flexible Grid. With maximum versatility, it enables ZR, Data Center Interconnection, Metro and Long Haul applications.
"Building on a long track record of bringing high performance optical modules with advanced functionalities to the market, Menara’s engineering team successfully integrated all necessary functions for digital coherent transmission in a CFP2 form factor,” said Salam ElAhmadi, Menara Networks CTO & VP of Engineering. “CFP2 smaller foot-print not only doubles the faceplate density but also improves 200G coherent transmission economics.”
Menara Networks is showcasing its Hytham line of digital coherent modules live on a 200 km repeater-less fiber link featuring IPG Photonics’ industry-leading compact hybrid EDFA/Raman Optical Services Transport Platform (OSTP) at booth # 4423 on the exhibit floor of the Optical Fiber Communications from March 13-15, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center. Also showcased live is the company’s Atlas line of full C-band tunable, industrial temperature grade 10G SFP+ and XFP modules with integrated OTN framing and Forward Error Correction based on the company proprietary ASICs.
