AC400 Flex Product Family
Our AC400 Flex product family contains three modules that support transmission capacities ranging from 100 Gbps to 400 Gbps per module. By changing the configuration of these modules through software configuration, customers can use these modules to support the transmission speed and distance that is best suited to their needs.
AC400-U: Released in 2015, this dual-core, flex-rate and flex-modulation module supports transmission capacities of 100, 200, 300 and 400 Gbps in an industry-standard 5” x 7” form factor. This module is software configurable to optimize transmission speeds, fiber capacity, compensation for distortion and power consumption for multiple applications, including inter- data center, metro, long-haul and subsea applications spanning transmission distances up to 12,000 km and greater. It is based on our Denali DSP ASIC and our silicon PIC. We believe it is the industry’s first commercially available dual-core coherent module, the first commercially available module to support multiple transmission speeds in a single product and the first commercially available module to support transmission capacities of up to 400 Gbps.
AC400-S: Released in 2015, this dual-core module provides similar functionality to our AC400- U module and incorporates enhanced-performance 100 Gbps configuration that allows for upgrades of subsea systems originally equipped with 40 Gbps optical interconnect technology. It is based on our Denali DSP ASIC.
AC400-UL: Released in 2015, this module supports a transmission speed of 100 Gbps for subsea applications in an industry-standard 5” x 7” form factor with a digital electrical interface compatible with our AC100-MSA product family. It is based on our Denali DSP ASIC and our silicon PIC.
