WaveReady Transponder, Dual 10G Tunable
DWDM Reach Extension and Regeneration
The WaveReady® WRT-882 is a dual bidirectional OTN transponder that converts short-reach 10G optical signals to long-reach OTN optical interfaces. Its network interface is C-band tunable and supports mapping of client signals into OTU2 (G.709) with forward error correction (FEC). The WRT-882 can double the usable bandwidth of a single WaveReady shelf to over 260G.
The WaveReady WRT-882 provides a 10G small form-factor pluggable (XFP) tunable line interface and pluggable XFP client-side optics. The 10G XFPs support various protocols and reaches, including 8G Fibre Channel, OC-192/STM-64 (SR-1), and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE).
The module supports 3R (reshape, retime, and regeneration) operation at all supported rates.
Optical Service Demarcation
The WRT-882 also has advanced demarcation capability, including such features as remote management, performance statistics on network and client interfaces, data-rate provisioning, loopback testing, and power monitoring. These functions facilitate fault location and correction and simplify operations required by service management and service level agreements (SLA).
