Menara Networks sampling 200G coherent transceiver to select customers

Menara Networks, an IPG Photonics business, is now sampling its Coherent CFP-DCO transceivers to selected customers, the company said.

Based on an advanced 16 nm Coherent Processor, Menara´s Digital CFP-DCO DWDM transceiver provides complete DWDM coherent transmission for 100G and 200G per wavelength in a CFP MSA form factor.

It performs all necessary adaptive advanced modulation, digital signal processing for linear and non-linear fiber impairments compensation, G.709 compliant OTN framing, and a multitude of hard and soft decision based forward error correction encoders/decoders. Compatible with 100GE, CAUI, OTL 4.10, and OTL 4.4 interfaces, Menara´s Coherent CFP-DCO is full C-band tunable and supports ITU-T G.694.1 12.5 GHz Flexible Grid.

With maximum versatility, it enables ZR, Data Center Interconnection, Metro and Long Haul applications.

Founded in 1990, IPG pioneered the development and commercialization of optical fiber-based lasers for use in diverse applications, primarily materials processing, as well as telecommunications, medical and advanced applications. Fiber lasers have revolutionized the industry by delivering superior performance, reliability and usability at a lower total cost of ownership compared with conventional lasers, allowing end users to increase productivity and decrease operating costs. IPG has its headquarters in Oxford, Massachusetts, and has additional plants and offices throughout the world.

Menara Networks develops innovative products and solutions that simplify today´s layered optical transport networks.
