16G ReadyBrocade

The SPEED-DUALLINE 16G is a compact 2 channel transponder card. Depending on customer application, the SPEED-DUALLINE 16G can be equipped with four SFP+ ports or with two SFP+ and two XFP Ports. In CWDM and DWDM networks they implement up to two 4/8/16 GFC channels on corresponding CWDM and DWDM wavelengths. In addition, the SPEED-DUALLINE 16G with the integrated 3R (Reshaping, Reamplification, Retiming) function permits perfect transmission also over longer distances. A further area of application of the SPEED-DUALLINE 16G is the interface conversion of SFP+ transceivers to XFP transceivers. The SPEED-DUALLINE 16G permits 1+1 protection for redundant coupling of two sites via fibre channel. Thus, up to 80 km without intermediate site can be bridged. Depending on customer requirements, always two 4/8/16 GFC signals can be transmitted. In addition, SNMP Traps can be sent to a management system via Ethernet over the integrated SNMP transmitter. The system card makes possible a conversion of the 10 Gbps signals in OUT-2 data packets by using OTN-DWDM transceivers and thus prepares the access point in an OTN network. Furthermore, with these OTN-Transceivers use can be made of FEC (Forward Error Correction) functionality and thus greater distances can be bridged.
