Alien Wavelengths - 100G to 200G at no extra cost

Plus tunable DWDM wavelengths giving you up to 88 200G channels. Combine multiple different client side data rates.

Why settle for 100G when you can have 200G for no additional cost?




Pluggable 100G/200G multiprotocol, multirate, multireach muxponder with twenty multiprotocol SFP+ client ports. Multiple configuration options (20 x 10G; 2 x 40G + 12 x 10G; 4 x 40G + 4 x 10G). Single integrated coherent FlexRate 100G/200G line port with DynaFEC and SD FEC. Used for transmission from 10Km to 10,000Km. -SF versions compatible with single fibre bi-directional operation.

EKINOPS continues to advance the capabilities of its coherent high-speed modules with the EKINOPS PM 200FR20 that provides flexible line rate functionality to deliver up to 400G of capacity in a single shelf (see C200HC chassis below).

Using advanced Digital Signal Processor (DSP) technology, the EKINOPS PM 200FR20 supports both the 16QAM and DP-QPSK modulation formats with the software flexibility to select either for a 100G or 200G line rate, depending on your requirements for capacity and distance.

In DP-QPSK format, the PM 200FR20 can transport 100G up to 10 000 km but can be used for shorter metro-regional spans as well. In 16QAM format, it can transport 200G up to 1000 km.

The EKINOPS PM 200FR20 is also available in a single fibre variant supporting transmit and receive of different channels on the same module over a single strand of fibre.

With this flexibility, network operators can use the same line card for multiple applications no matter what the span requirements are, helping them simplify sparing, streamline logistics and speed ordering and replacement, all of which result in lower operational costs. It also allows the operator to easily double capacity on any link simply by upgrading the existing module.

This process can be easily accomplished from a remote Network Operations Centre (NOC) using a simple firmware download. There is no need to roll a truck or dispatch a technician to replace hardware or move patch cords.


Tunable DWDM Channels

The line side supports up to 88x DWDM tunable wavelengths. Giving you the flexibility of being able to select the channel you need rather than having the restriction of a fix DWDM wavelength. These 88x channels operate at either 100G or 200G.


Client Side Data Rates

The module also has a high degree of service flexibility with multiprotocol client support including 10GbE, 8G FC, 10G FC, 16G FC, OC-192/STM-64, OTU2 and OTU2e.

The EKINOPS PM 200FR20 supports 20 SFP+ client ports. It also works with 40GbE using our QSFP+ to 4xSFP+ DAC/AOC’s – see below.




The module is ultra-compact delivering either 2x100G or 2x200G in only 2RU and highly power efficient. Combining this with ease of operation, unmatched price points and superior performance, EKINOPS makes your choice easy when it comes to coherent transport solutions.




The EKINOPS PM 200FR20 and PM 200FR20-SF modules can be managed through SNMP or via the EKINOPS standard element level management interfaces, which include a Command Line Interface (CLI) and an EKINOPS java-based Graphical User Interface (GUI).

The CLI is accessible via Secure Socket Shell (SSH) and Telnet remotely or via a local serial port locally on the management board.

Complete performance monitoring and management are provided, including laser shutoff and local and remote loopback, useful for maintenance and fault isolation.

Digital Diagnostics Management (DDM) is supported for the SFP+ interfaces. This includes link status, transmit (TX) and receive (RX) signal power monitoring, and operational temperature, as well as manufacturer and transceiver model information essential for inventory management. A 10 Mbps in-band Data Communications Channel (DCC) is embedded in the line side for remote management.

The EKINOPS PM 200FR20 and PM 200FR20-SF modules are also supported by Celestis NMS, the EKINOPS advanced Network Management System:
