Ekinops offers flexi-rate modules with 400G capacity

Optical network equipment supplier Ekinops has unveiled a new, flexible-rate transponder/muxponder card which allows network operators to quickly and easily double their transport capacity.

The low-cost programmable line card uses an advanced digital signal processor (DSP) combined with Ekinops’ enhanced T-Chip (Transport-on-a-Chip) technology to support both DP-QPSK and 16QAM coherent modulation formats on the same card.
