PacketLight Networks Announces the PL-2000T 800G Transponder for High Capacity 200G Metro and 100G Long Haul Applications

Integrated mux/demux, optical amplifier, optical switch and Layer-1
optical encryption in 1U

TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PacketLight
, a leading provider of DWDM and optical fiber networking
solutions, today announces the launch of the PL-2000T, a modular and
cost-effective transponder solution for high capacity metro and long
haul applications, designed to support multiple 100G services, increase
existing network capacity, and provide secure transport. The device has
four 200G pluggable coherent optical modules to enable pay-as-you-grow
architecture, and delivers the entire optical layer solution in a 1RU
with up to 800G capacity for metro applications and 400G for long haul

The PL-2000T is a fully integrated solution, offering mux/demux,
amplifier, optical switch and embedded Layer-1 optical encryption. It
provides a full demarcation point between the service CPE side and the
uplink DWDM side, and is interoperable with any third party switch or
router. This enables full visibility and performance monitoring of both
the line optical transport layer (OTN) and the 100G LAN/OTU4 service

“The PL-2000T focuses on our customers’ need for a secure, compact,
scalable, and high capacity transport solution. The device delivers high
capacity 100G services with variable modulation schemes, covering a
large variety of deployments and applications,” says Koby Reshef, CEO of
PacketLight Networks. “It’s a unique platform offering protection,
amplification, and wavelength multiplexing, enabling simple and quick
deployment while saving rack space and reducing power consumption.”

The PL-2000T has three operation modes: QAM 8 and QAM16 for 200G metro,
and DP-QPSK 100G for long haul. The support and flexible selection of
these modulation modes enables using the same device for multiple
applications in the network, such as alien wavelength applications, last
mile access/aggregation CPE for 100G managed services, high capacity DCI
for enterprise, and encrypted communication for 100G protocols.

PacketLight will be showcasing the PL-2000T at The
Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition

from March 5-7, 2019. To schedule a meeting, contact
