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.

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.

M-series in short

M-Series was the world’s first Open Line System.

  • ETSI form factor
  • Any combination of DWDM transceivers, transponders or muxponders
  • No complex setup and minimal optical fiber knowledge required
  • 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
  • Modern management architecture for today’s DCI

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.

“The bigger systems used by carriers include far more than we needed. The Smartoptics M-Series platform provided the perfect fit. Its feature range is the perfect match for our current and ongoing services requirements.”
– Kate Baker, Custodian, UK.

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.
