The Lambdatrail 4 is an extremely compact, powerful and fl exible DWDM muxponder which is primarily deployed in data center and cloud connectivity environments.
The true greatness of the Lambdatrail 4 (LT4) lies in its compactness: A 19” chassis, 1RU high, with four service slots for installing service modules (sleds). The fully modular design of the LT4 rigorously imple-ments the “pay as you grow” principle; from service module to tran-sceiver. This special feature provides scalability – from 8 Gbps to max. 1.6 Tbps per LT4, resp. up to 25.6 Tbps per otical fi ber or 134 Tbps per 42RU rack.
The LT4 can be individually equipped with service modules and transceivers according to the customer’s needs. Depending on the type of service module (sled) deployed, one or two service slots are required. The service modules and transceivers can be individually confi gured in a number of different ways. This guarantees the freedom to plan one’s network according to one’s needs, e.g. in a “green fi eld” installation, or to meet application-specifi c requirements in an existing network environment.
Future technologies and functionality can be introduced quickly and easily by simply swapping out one of the service modules. The chassis does not need to be swapped out – protecting your investment in the long term.
Data transmission takes place via a single or dual optical fi ber(s), pro-viding coherent transmission via tunable 100, 150 or 200G CFP2-ACO transceivers – with “wire speed” AES-256 link encryption in environ-ments with higher security requirements.
Client services, including 8/16G FC and 10/40/100G Ethernet etc., can be fl exibly combined in the same chassis, resp. service module and then adjusted to meet changing demands.
The open, non-proprietary management and confi guration interfaces facilitate both the commissioning process and integration into existing management environments in a data center setup.
Last but not least, the Lambdatrail 4 stands out due to its low power consumption – only 20 Watt / 100G (incl. line- and client-side transceivers) and extremely low operating and maintenance costs.
The service modules and transceivers are hot-pluggable and hot-swappable. This signifi cantly increases system availability whilst considerably reducing the costs of maintenance work and spare parts.
Lambdatrail 4 – a muxponder platform for the data connections of today and tomorrow.
