Packetlight Networks Overview

Packetlight creates equipment for fiber-optic data transport over dark fiber & WDM networks.

Wait, first - what is WDM?

WDM (Wavelength-division multiplexing) is a technology which multiplexes a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (i.e., colors) of laser light. This technique enables bidirectional communications over one strand of fiber, as well as multiplication of capacity. (Wikipedia)

Packetlight offers a variety of WDM & OTN (optical layer transport) products such as:

100G to 200G Products

Based on 100G/200G DWDM muxponder/transponder/ADM products. These products cover short haul, DCI (data center interconnect), metro, and long haul applications. Among the 100G to 200G products:
  • 1.6T DCI Optical Transport Platform - adjusted for data center interconnect, cloud and colocation providers, and high capacity applications.
  • 200G ADM for Long Haul - perfect for metro and long haul applications.
  • 200G Single Wavelength Muxponder - made for next generation data center interconnect and metro applications.

Sub 100G Products (1G-40G)

Packetlight provides a series of highly flexible CWDM/DWDM/OTN optical networking platforms for data, storage, voice and video transport. The Sub 100G products include:
  • Universal 1G to 40G Transponder - DWDM/CWDM 622M to 40G 1U transponder which can support up to 8 transponders.
  • WDM Sub-10G Transponder - a multi protocol optical transport device that supports facility protection in CWDM, DWDM and dark fiber optical networks.
  • 10G DWDM OTN Transponder - used for unified transport of different protocols over common fiber optical network.

Optical Infrastructure Products

PacketLight provides all optical infrastructure products such as:
  • ROADM - the PL-1000RO offers ROADM functionality based on the next generation wavelength-selective switch (WSS) technology.
  • Optical Amplifiers - the PL-1000IL provides amplification for a range of optical solutions starting from single wavelength, to full ITU C-band 96 DWDM wavelengths.
  • Passive WDM Solutions - The PL-300 passive optical network products connect with PacketLight’s transponder, muxponder, amplifier and ROADM product lines.

Layer-1 Optical DWDM Encryption Product Suite

PacketLight Networks provides Layer-1 encryption solutions for OTN and dark fiber networks while delivering full data productivity:
  • Layer-1 DWDM Encryption: the PL-1000TE-Crypto is a multi-rate, multi-service high density wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transponder.
  • 200G ADM for Long Haul: the PL-2000AD is a 1U multi-protocol multi-rate muxponder/transponder/ADM which provides high transport capacity of up to 200G.
  • 200G ADM/Muxponder/Transponder: The PL-2000ADS is a 200G multi-protocol multi-rate muxponder/transponder/ADM for short haul optical transport solutions.
