ClientReach Optical 100G Transponder System

Compact Ultra-long-haul (ULH) System

IPG Photonics’ Dual 100G Transponder System enables 100G network extensions (100 GbE or OTU4) to end users from the optical network core, in a cost-effective 1RU chassis.  The chassis supports transport for (1) or (2) 100G client signals over a linear DWDM OTU4V (127 Gbps) line signal with Polarization Multiplexed Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (PM-QPSK) modulation format.  An integrated Optical Supervisory Channel supports end-to-end DCN connectivity. 



Forward Error Correction (HGFEC or SDFEC) lowers OSNR requirements and increases optical transmission budget
Integrated Optical Supervisory Channel (OSC) enables end-to-end management and communication
IPG’s 100G coherent CFP line interface from Menara Networks includes an integrated EDFA supporting up to +3dBm launch power
IPG EAR Series amps (1RU) can enhance optical launch power to max. 14dBm, with optional preamp for <-40dB receive level
Up to +28dB optical link budget supported without external amps
