SWEDEN -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet-optical networking solutions, today launched the industry's first CFP based all-pluggable 100G Solution for Metro networks with support for coherent optics. Uniquely, the solution supports both Layer 1 WDM transport and Layer 2 packet-optical applications.

To address the specific challenges of the metro network environment, Transmode's new Metro 100G Solution includes three highly flexible plug-in units for the widely deployed TM-Series. The range of new units includes a 100G Transponder, a 100G Muxponder and a 220G Layer 2 Ethernet Muxponder (EMXP). The new EMXP is part of the company's popular family of EMXP units that support Ethernet switching in the Native Packet Optical 2.0 architecture with a common Ethernet feature set from 1G or 10G CPE access nodes to a 100G core network.

Sten Nordell, Transmode's Chief Technology Officer, said, "This is a significant development milestone for Transmode and we are delighted to be bringing this kind of new solution to the industry. Not only is quick implementation of the new coherent CFP units important but extending their use to both Layer 1 and Layer 2 applications is greatly significant. The Metro P-OTS market is the fastest growing segment of the optical networking industry and one that Transmode already serves well. We are the largest vendor of Metro Edge P-OTS in EMEA and we support customers across the globe with highly sophisticated packet-optical networks. We can now extend these to 100G while also extending our existing TM-2000 based Layer 1 100G capabilities deeper into metro networks."

The range of new units become available from Q2 this year. They bring better economics to metro 100G applications as well as greater flexibility now and as 100G CFP technology evolves, and simplified sparing and operations. Furthermore, the use of new coherent CFPs greatly reduces power consumption and increases solution density. For example, the new 100G Transponder only draws as low as 75W including optics and all three units are dual slot units allowing up to 8 units to be supported in the TM-3000 chassis (11u).

The new units support complete flexibility on all 100G CFP ports enabling operation with shorter reach SR-10, LR-10 or LR-4 optics or longer reach Coherent 100G CFP units that can support applications up to 800km. The units can be deployed in existing TM-Series networks and can be deployed in networks supporting any lower speed wavelengths such as 2.5G, 10G, 40G or other protocol specific rates such as 16G Fibre Channel.

Pluggable optics
I'm going to go ahead and make the not-so-shocking prediction that pluggable optics will be much discussed at OFC 2014.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
