COLOGNE -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet optical networking solutions, today announced the availability of the latest member of the EMXP IIe family, the EMXP IIe 240 providing very high density and low power 10G based Ethernet switching for Metro-Edge P-OTS applications.
Transmode has been at the forefront of the rapid migration to metro and regional packet-optical transport solutions (P-OTS) which integrate Layer 2 Ethernet into the optical platforms. The company is currently shipping these solutions across the globe and was the leading vendor of P-OTS products in EMEA in 2014 according to analyst firm IHS Infonetics.
Transmode's EMXP II/IIe family combines the best of the optical and Ethernet worlds including MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) services, MPLS-TP and OTN transport. The EMXP family provides Ethernet and MPLS-TP services with industry-leading transport performance such as ultra-low latency and zero jitter to ensure high service performance. The family of plug-in units also supports SyncE and 1588v2 for mobile and other synchronization sensitive traffic.
The new EMXP IIe 240 unit extends the switching and port density with support for 240G non-blocking switching and 24x 10G ports on a single plug-in unit. Each 10G port supports either client or long reach (1500 to 2000 km) optics with tunable DWDM optics and Forward Error Correction (FEC) via standard GFEC or super-FEC options. This configuration of effectively 24 10G long reach transponders and a central 240G switch on a single unit gives very high 10G port density and power consumption as low as 5W per 10G port even when DWDM optics are used in all ports.
