By exploiting next generation 5nm 140Gbaud transceiver technology, OT9408 leapfrogs the performance of current generation 7nm 95Gbaud based solutions. It distinctively features a combination of continuous baud rate and continuous modulation controls that maximize the line rate, from 400G to 1200G, for any distance and channel width right to the edge of the Shannon Limit. This enables Apollo 9408 to meet the most demanding needs of network operators by uniquely providing 1.2Twavelengths for short haul applications, 800G wavelengths that cover the entire extended-metro space, and 400G wavelengths for ultra-long haul.
Apollo 9408 also delivers ultra-dense 400G metro networking solutions using pay-as-you-grow QSFP-DD 0dBM+ pluggables, which are OpenROADM compliant for disaggregated transmission applications.
Not only does Apollo 9408 deliver outstanding performance, it incorporates many features to facilitate deployment and operability.
- Compact 2RU chassis with front to back cooling for data center residency.
- MPO fibers for installation simplicity, and all common modules are field replaceable.
- Auto discovery and gNMI telemetry for advanced operations.
- Disaggregated deployment with control via industry standard APIs, or control via Muse SDN Orchestrator.
