MS-100E aggregating transponder

Transmits 10 x 10 Gbit/s client signals in 100 Gbit/s DWDM channel

  • Transmits 10 client signals of 10GE, STM-64, OTU2, 8/10 GFC
  • Coherent DP-QPSK modulation format
  • Reconfigurable in C-band laser
  • Automatic dispersion correction up to ± 55 ns/nm
  • OSNRτ from 11 dB (0.1 nm, BER = 10 -¹²)
  • The unit is certified by BROCADE

A series of aggregating transponders MS-100E includes three versions. Several world records (MS-100E-T10) were installed on the equipment:

  • transmission of 100G to 4000 km in the EDFA cascade without dispersion compensation and without regeneration;
  • transmission of 10x100G by 500 km from ROPA in a single-span line.

The transponder transfers data at a stabilized according to ITU-T 50 GHz according to the DWDM grid. MS-100E-T10 is certified by BROCADE.
