Ribbon's Apollo Platform Offers Industry Leading 1.2T Wavelengths and 19.2T Density, Delivering Massive Cost and Performance Benefits
Feature rich, simple to deploy solution available in First Half 2023
PLANO, Texas ,
"The Apollo OT9408 platform showcases our continuing innovation and ability to deliver the solutions operators need as they juggle with the competing imperatives of managing growing traffic densities, lowering cost per bit, and providing excellent performance," said
A comprehensive platform, the Apollo OT9408 enables both capacity-reach optimized and cost-power optimized solutions that can function alongside each other, offering maximum spectrum utilization.
In addition to its industry leading 1.2T wavelengths for shorthaul, the new platform's capacity-reach optimized transport delivers 800G wavelengths that cover the entire metro-regional space, tripling the reach of current competitor solutions, and 400G for ultra-long haul submarine that can cross the longest spans in the world. Based on 5mm-140Gbaud pluggable transceivers, it also supports impressive 19.2T density in a 2RU form factor and over 50% lower power utilization per gigabit than competitive solutions.
The cost-optimized solution offers 400G transport that satisfies a majority of metro applications. Based on a wide selection of industry standard QSFP-DD pluggables, these solutions include OpenROADM interoperablity for additional flexibility.
Apollo OT9408 is designed for easy deployment and operation, including features such as front-to-back cooling, field replaceable modules, streaming telemetry, and disaggregated control through standard interfaces. It has already been recognized in in the 2023 Lightwave Innovation Awards, and is being shown for the first time in Booth 2339 at OFC.
