About the PL-4000T 4x400G Muxponder/Transponder

The modular, standards-based device increases network capacity and enables flexible pay-as-you-grow architecture by delivering either a 4x100GbE muxponder or 1x400GbE transponder per slice using pluggable optical modules. In addition, the PL-4000T strengthens data security by supporting Layer-1 encryption based on GCM-AES-256 standards and Diffie-Hellman (DH) Key Exchange.

The PL-4000T supports standard MSA pluggable modules QSFPDD, CPF2-DCO, and QSFPDD-DCO, and industry standard OFEC and CFEC. The modules reduce power consumption by more than 70 percent and improve port density per 1U compared with existing proprietary, bulky solutions on the market.
