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

The PL-4000M is a modular and cost-effective solution for rolling out multirate 10/25/100GbE, 16/32G 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 pluggable CFP2-DCO modules for coherent metro and long haul applications.

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, 16/32G FC, and OTU2/2e/4 service interfaces.


High Spectral Efficiency

Support of multiple services and rates over 400G single wavelength.

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.
