BTI Multiprotocol Transponders
BTI 7000 Series Multiprotocol Transponders provide high capacity, dedicated WAN connectivity and support client protocols from 100 Mbps and 10 Gbps.
BTI Transponders provide reach extension and demarcation as interfaces of the BTI 7000 Series WDM network to subtending networking equipment. Primarily supplying wavelength translation, BTI Transponders receive, process, and retransmit optical client services on a different wavelength to increase capacity.
BTI's dual transponder architecture offers high density extension of two independent client services or resilient protection of a single client service. It can also be leveraged as a WAN service on-ramp or regenerator module in reach extension applications.
The BTI family of transponders includes several options:
- Dual 10G Multiprotocol Transponder (10G DTPR)
- 10G Multiprotocol Transponder (10G TPR)
- Dual 10G Multiprotocol Transponder Lite (10G DTPR-L)
- Dual 4G Multiprotocol Transponder (4G DTPR)
- Dual 2.5G Multiprotocol Transponder (2.5G DTPR)
BTI Multiprotocol Transponder Benefits to Service Providers:
- Multiprotocol support - a comprehensive mix of data, storage, and TDM protocols including GbE, Fibre Channel, FICON receive dedicated wavelength transport
- Extended reach and improved throughput - standards-based G.709 OTN enabled networking delivers better reach and throughput and also offers an in-band communications channel
- Integrated WAN Protection - high density independent transport of two client services or sub-50ms 1+1 protection switching for a single client service may be provided
- Simplified provisioning and sparing - use of standards-based SFP, XFP and tunable XFP, as well as software programmable ports, enables flexible deployment of BTI transponders
- Wavelength regeneration - An integral part of reach extension solutions, BTI dual transponders save cost and support multiple regeneration options
- Extensive performance monitoring - extensive optical and protocol performance metrics provide superior network and service visibility
