Menara Networks announces customer sampling of new transceiver

Menara Networks, an IPG Photonics business and a vertically integrated provider of IP/Ethernet DWDM transport solutions, has announced it is now sampling its Coherent CFP2-DCO transceivers to selected customers, the company said.

Based on an advanced 16 nm Coherent Processor, Menara´s Digital CFP2-DCO “system-in-a-module” provides complete DWDM coherent transmission for 100G and 200G per wavelength in a CFP2 MSA small form factor. It performs all necessary adaptive PM-QPSK and PM-QAM 16 modulation, digital signal processing for linear and non-linear fiber impairments compensation, G.709 compliant OTN framing, and a multitude of hard and LDPC-based soft decision forward error correction encoders/decoders.

Compatible with 100GE, CAUI, OTL4.10, and OTL 4.4 interfaces, Menara´s Coherent CFP2-DCO is full C-band tunable and supports ITU-T G.694.1 6.25 GHz Flexible Grid. With maximum versatility, it enables ZR, Data Center Interconnection, Metro and Long Haul applications.
