Menara Networks Tunable OTN XFP DWDM transceiver combines carrier grade OTN G.709 framing, FEC performance and 50GHz full C-band tunability into a XFP MSA compliant package.
OTN XFP is the only industry XFP MSA that can transparently carry a native 10G LAN PHY, SONET/SDH and Fibre Channel payload with a carrier-grade DWDM Optical Transport Network (OTN) interface without the need for bandwidth limitation.
OTN XFP combines a G.709 compliant Digital Wrapper and Forward Error Correction (FEC) with a M-Z modulated 50GHz tunable laser for superior optical performance and management functions equal to those found in external DWDM Transponder systems. Tunable OTN XFP is designed to interoperate with any Open DWDM line system that support 50GHz or 100GHz spaced wavelengths per the ITU-T C-band grid thus offering complete and cost effective DWDM transport for IP, MPLS, and Ethernet applications.
Tunable OTN XFP G.709 digital wrapper overhead and FEC functions are handled by the OTN Processor, which is integrated into the XFP module. The OTN Processor provides Operations Administration and Management (OAM) functions with G.709 alarms and Performance Management statistics.
Tunable OTN XFP supports the following main features:
