Menara Networks Announces General Availability of Industry's Only Tunable SFP+ with Integrated OTN and Forward Error Correction Capabilities
Menara Networks, an IPG Photonics (News - Alert) business and a vertically integrated
provider of IP/Ethernet DWDM transport solutions, today announced the
general availability of its OTN tunable SFP+ transceiver; a
"System-in-module" with integrated Forward Error Correction (FEC) and
advanced monitoring capabilities.
Based on the company's proprietary high speed Integrated circuit,
Menara's OTN SFP+ provides superior optical performance, enhanced FEC,
and full G.709 OTN functionalities - akin to those found in
chassis-based DWDM transponders - in a pluggable small form factor. It
transparently processes 10G Ethernet, 10G FC and 9.96 Gbps SONET/SDH and
is compatible with all major routers and Ethernet/MPLS switches.
Menara's OTN SFP+ is the industry's only module capable of 120 km reach
without optical amplification or dispersion compensation at 11.1 Gbps. A
rich menu of "near-end" and "far-end" in-service monitoring makes it
ideal for zero foot-print 10G NID applications. The Telcordia (News - Alert) qualified
module is tunable over the entire C-band on the 50 GHz grid and is
available for commercial and industrial temperature applications.
"We are happy to announce general availability of our OTN SFP+," said
Siraj Nour ElAhmadi, Menara President & GM. "This product is now
shipping to a major OEM customer and several service providers affording
them significant footprint, power consumption and cost advantages versus
a transponder-based solution."
In an earlier press release, Menara Networks announced customer sampling
of the company 200G Digital CFP2-DCO module, as the latest member of the
Hytham line of digital coherent 100G/200G pluggable modules.
Menara Networks is showcasing live its Atlas line of OTN
"system-ina-module" and its Hytham line of 100G/200G digital coherent
pluggable modules in an IP over DWDM application based on Juniper
Networks® MX Router and IPG Photonics high performance compact hybrid
EDFA/Raman Optical Services Transport Platform (OSTP) at its booth #
4423 on the exhibit floor of the Optical Fiber Communications from March
13-15, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center.
