Optelian Adds Multi-Service Networking Card

Optelian is pleased to announce the addition of the FLX-1610 multi-service networking card to the LightGAIN portfolio. It provides high-density, multiprotocol aggregation and flexible deployment options that improve network efficiency and offers unprecedented service delivery flexibility to LightGAIN networks.

Optelian has expanded its LightGAIN optical transmission platform with the introduction of a high-density FLX-1610 multi-service card offering 14 SFP ports for any mix of client services, and two XFP line ports to handle both linear and ring topologies. Any combination of protected or unprotected Ethernet, SONET/SDH, storage, and video client services (155 Mbps to 4.25 Gbps) can be supported up to a cumulative bandwidth of 10 Gbps per XFP port. The line interface is OC-192 with optional G.709 OTU2 encapsulation and tri-FEC for enhanced reach. The FLX-1610’s deployment options include 10 Gbps and 20 Gbps point-to-point muxponder modes, as well as a distributed add/drop networking mode where services can be cross-connected between any FLX-1610 within a linear ADM chain or UPSR-protected 10G ring.
