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.
