PacketLight's PL-4000G is an integrated 1U platform that transports a mix of 100GbE and 400GbE over 400G wavelengths, for high capacity DCI applications.

PL-4000G - 4.8T Transponder

PL-4000G - 4.8T Transponder

The PL-4000G is a modular and cost-effective high capacity solution for rolling out 400GbE and 100GbE services, or increasing existing network capacity. The device has twelve 400G pluggable uplink optical modules, delivering up to 4.8T in a 1U chassis. The PL-4000G integrates mux/demux, EDFA and OSW and delivers the entire optical layer. This flexible solution enables pay-as-you-grow architecture.
High capacity in a small form factor
100GbE and 400GbE transported over 12 x 400G single wavelength, providing 4.8T in an integrated 1U form factor.

The product meets market demands for low power consumption, rack space savings and reduction in the overall solution CAPEX and OPEX by increasing network capacity.

Flexible Design

The device provides full demarcation point between the service and the DWDM network, and is interoperable with any third party switch or router. This provides full visibility and performance monitoring of both the optical transport layer and 100GbE/400GbE service interfaces.

Powerful Feature Set

The PL-4000G transports a mix of 100GbE and 400GbE services, delivering 4.8T capacity in a 1U form factor. The transponder provides the full optical networking solution as well as protection by integrating amplifiers, mux/demux and optical switch in the same device.
