DCP-Series transponders – Feature rich and scalable network expansion

Everything in the DCP transponder portfolio is plug-and-play. No new cabinets, no need to build up complex DWDM knowledge. DCP allows for a much more convenient distributed DWDM architecture throughout the data center with DCP modules placed close to where they need.

DCP-101 - 100G transponder

The guide to simpler, more flexible 100G DWDM connectivity


Learn how to usi open line networking to get data center traffic solutions that work.

DCP-2 – The chassis enabling decentralized DWDM networking

At the heart of the platform is the DCP-2. A 1U chassis that houses two DCP modules. It also houses the power and management for these DCP modules. The local DCP element manager completely removes the need for a centralized management board making networking more flexible.

Each element manager has all the required control and diagnostics features with a convenient API for north bound interfacing in to any standard network management system.

DCP modules can be placed close to the switches and routers whose traffic they need to transport are located. Low powered 1U modules instead of complex 5U+ systems. DWDM nodes distributed throughout the data center close to where they are required. Small form factor with no wasted chassis space. Each module is a fully enclosed EMI protected module that can be safely handled and easily installed.

DCP offers all the features required for multi-protocol traffic transfer over a dark fiber network without the need for extensive buildup of knowledge or costs. A system easily handled by Data and Storage engineers.

DCP-108 – 8 channel transponder for QSFP28 transceivers

In 100G DWDM configurations where it is not feasible to embed the PAM4 QFSP28 transceivers directly in the switch, or when
setting up a demarcation point in an operator’s network, the DCP-108 eight channel open transponder is the ideal solution.
Equipped with PAM4 QSFP28 transceivers, the DCP-108 is the ideal product for terminating 100G services in a cost-efficient way
at the subscriber premises.

DCP-404 Front ISO - EDITED 1000x1000

DCP-404 – 4 x 100GE muxponder

In 100G configurations where low cost multiplexing and bandwidth utilisation are important factors, the DCP-404 open muxponder
is the ideal solution. Equipped with 400G OpenZR+ DWDM transceivers, the DCP-404 is the ideal product for multiplexing 100G
services in a cost-efficient way at the subscriber premises.

Powerful and flexible networking

DCP transponders and muxponders can be used in any combination alongside embedded DWDM transceivers for flexible networking. With an M-Series intelligent multiplexer as the open line networking element, all traffic types can be combined together from throughout the data center on to a DWDM network.

Existing fiber optical networks can be easily upgraded with new services instead of building new systems from scratch. 40 and 100G services can easily be added to existing CWDM or DWDM networks previously optimized for 10G traffic.
