PacketLight offers PL-2000ADS muxponder for short-haul networks

PacketLight Networks has launched the PL-2000ADS, a 200G 1U multi-protocol multi-rate muxponder/transponder device for short-haul and encryption applications.

The new unit is designed for high-capacity optical transport in short haul, campuses, and access networks. With low power consumption and compact dimensions, the PL-2000ADS reduces the overall cost of providing these high-capacity links over shorter distances, according to PacketLight.
