PacketLight's PL-4000M is a high capacity transport platform which aggregates a flexible mix of services into a 400G DWDM uplink.

PL-4000M - 400G Muxponder

400G Muxponder - PL-4000M

The PL-4000M is a modular and cost-effective solution for rolling out multirate 10/25/100GbE, 16G FC, OTU2/2e/4 services, or increasing existing network capacity. The device delivers 400G capacity over a single wavelength in a 1U chassis, using dual 400G CFP2-DCO Open ROADM and OpenZR+ standards-based pluggable coherent modules for coherent metro and long haul applications.
High spectral efficiency
Multi-service, multi-rate services over 400G single wavelength using standards-based pluggable 400G DCO modules, with optional Layer-1 encryption.

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 PL-4000M provides full demarcation point between the service and the OTN/DWDM uplink, and is interoperable with any third party switch or router. This provides full visibility and performance monitoring of both line optical transport layer (OTN) and 10/25/100GbE, 16G FC, and OTU2/2e/4 service interfaces.

Powerful Feature Set

The PL-4000M delivers carrier grade, high-end 400G capacity per wavelength, capable of serving multiple applications and protocols for enterprise and data center networks, such as data, storage, video, and OTN. The product supports standards-based Layer-1 encryption, configurable per service or per uplink.
