PM 400FRS04 (-SF)

Pluggable 400G Flexrate Muxponder

PM 400FRS04 (-SF)

Pluggable 100G to 600G multireach muxponder with six multiprotocol QSFP28 clients ports. Single integrated tunable 100G/200G/300G/400G/500G/600G coherent FlexRate line port with SD FEC. Used for transmission from 10Km to 10,000Km. -SF version compatible with single fiber bi-directionnal operation.

In today’s networking environment, service providers and other network operators require the ability to deliver a variety of applications and services. With a highly differentiated customer base that is demanding a broad set of services with guaranteed performance, they need a high capacity network that is capable of delivering any service to any point in the network. This means having flexibility at the transport layer that is equivalent to the services layer. EKINOPS PM 400FRS04 delivers an unprecedented level of configurability and manageability that allows service providers to tune their optical transport network to match their service level needs. Capable of operating in multiple different modes, it supports any type of transport application from metro access to ultra-long haul including data center interconnectivity and even submarine transport.

The PM 400FRS04 has multiple adjustable parameters including modulation scheme, Forward Error Correction (FEC) overhead and baud rate as well as tunable wavelengths that allow service providers to optimize the reach and capacity of their transport network.

It also features an optional encryption mechanism that is integrated into the functionality of the line module with FIPS 140-2 compliant AES GCM-256 encryption and Diffie-Hellman key exchange. The PM 400FRS04 is capable of single fiber operation supporting transmit and receive of different channels on the same module over a single strand of fiber at full line rate to deliver high capacity connectivity even in networks normally restricted by fiber availability.

Even with its advanced functionality, PM 400FRS04 fits seamlessly into existing EKINOPS networks and can even be deployed as an Alien wavelength over third party line systems. It is fully compatible with existing EKINOPS 360 chassis and runs using the same software. SDN-ready, the PM 400FRS04 can also be managed using any controller based on NETCONF/YANG data models in addition to Ekinops’ management tools (see below).


The EKINOPS PM 400FRS04 module can be managed through SNMP or via the EKINOPS standard element level management interfaces, which include a Command Line Interface (CLI) and an EKINOPS Graphical User Interface (GUI). The CLI is accessible via Secure Socket Shell (SSH) and Telnet remotely or via a local serial port on the management board. Complete performance monitoring and management are provided, including laser shutoff and local and remote loopback, which is useful for maintenance and fault isolation. Digital Diagnostics Management (DDM) is supported for QSFP28 interfaces.

Complete performance monitoring and management are provided by Celestis NMS, the EKINOPS advanced Network Management System, or through any SDN controller via NETCONF interface
