A more flexible approach to networking

Consumer broadband consumption is rising steadily. Business customers are deploying new 5G-dependent technologies. Existing regional and metro network capacity can’t keep up. As margins drop, more capacity needs to be delivered at lower cost. This calls for more cost-efficient and flexible ways of building your network.

Break free from vendor lock-in and be flexible with truly open line systems, ROADMs, optics and modular management software. Upgrade to 400G and run low-cost 100G with zero licensing fees. We offer active/passive solutions for back-hauling broadband networks and 5G, enabling an IP over DWDM architecture. Build your metro or regional network more flexibly than ever before, while lowering both CAPEX and OPEX.

Solution Brief

Introducing 400G Pluggable DWDM

What was once state of the art data rates for optical links in metro networks and between data centers is now superseded by the even higher rate of 400G DWDM.

An accelerating interest in cloud computing, video streaming and data-replication between sites drives the need for more bandwidth in corporate data centers and networks. In a similar way, growing media consumption and consumer demands for a richer internet experience requires increased broadband communications capacity in service provider networks.

“I love the flexibility that the Smartoptics muxponder gives us: I get up to 400G in capacity but I can just run 100G now to bring the cost down. The solution will serve us well for a long time to come, preparing us for whatever new demands the future may hold.”
