Open Line systems

Next generation platform for PAM 4 and Coherent DWDM DCI connectivity

Flexible and futureproof networks

DCP-M and M-Series are truly open line systems. They work with any combination of embedded DWDM, transponder and muxponder traffic depending on the specific needs of the network.

“The Smartoptics open line solution is completely scalable, you can pay as you grow, making it a smart investment”
– Georg Chytil, CEO at next layer.

DCP-M in short

DCP-M is exactly like using 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.

Modern management architecture for today’s DCI

Smart Manager is a modern REST based architecture built from the ground up specifically for DCI and is integrated into all DCP modules. In the same way that DCP-M is the simplest open line system on the market to operate, the same applies to the management platform.

Simple, easy to operate, open software

  • Modern DCI architecture
  • No TL1 or Hypervisor translation required
  • Small form factor solutions
  • Automated provisioning
  • Industry standard open and customizable APIs
  • REST and CLI architecture
  • Standard and customizable SNMP

Reduced cost

Unprecedented level of cost efficiency and ROI for DCI. The end result: reduction in price, fewer spare parts and lower operating cost.

User friendly

Traditional telecom grade DWDM systems are inherently expensive and complicated to run. Complete zero-touch automatic optical setup, just like using a passive multiplexer.

Longer distances

Same plug and play experience as a passive multiplexer with the distance extension and traffic monitoring capabilities of an active DWDM system.
