Menara ships direct detection 100G DWDM CFP modules

Menara Networks has started volume shipments of its flagship 100G CFP pluggable optical module using direct detection for metro and data centre interconnection.

Menara’s 100G CFP module is based on the dispersion-tolerant optical duo-binary modulation format (ODB), which provides extended reach of up to 300km. This technology allows existing 10G DWDM infrastructure to be upgraded to 100G without the prohibitive cost, footprint and power of a coherent solution, the company says.
