DCP-M Open Line Systems

Next generation platform for PAM 4 and Coherent DWDM DCI connectivity

Talk to us about this

DCP-M is a true open line DWDM platform designed specifically for modern DCI. DCP-M has the form factor and usability of a passive multiplexer, but unlike a passive multiplexer it monitors the traffic, amplifies the signals for longer distances and can handle higher data rate protocols.

DCP-M provides everything required for an open line system and is simple, reliable and open for all DCI protocol types. DCP-M offers an unparalleled level of plug and play simplicity regardless of traffic type and network application.

The DCP-M family comprises four models for either 8 or 40 channels, dedicated for either 100G DWDM PAM4 traffic or for applications with any mix of PAM4, NRZ and coherent 100/400G channels.

Key Features

DCP-M brings an unprecedented level of plug and play simplicity to DWDM DCI networking, being designed with ease of use in mind. Power levels are automatically regulated and a visual confirmation via LEDs shows that channel and line are set up correctly. Automated configuration and zero-touch provisioning mean that installation and adding new connections can be done in minutes also by staff with only a basic knowledge of optical networking.

  • Direct detect (eg PAM4) and/or coherent DWDM transceivers and/or transponders
  • No complex setup and minimal optical fiber knowledge required Intelligence and amplification in a 8 or 40 channel DWDM multiplexer
  • Completely automatic optical setup, just like using a passive multiplexer
  • Automatic fiber distance measurement and dispersion compensation setting
  • Simple and cost effective datacom not telecom platform Modern management architecture based on REST and CLI APIs
  • Easily integrated into any network telemetry systems
