Ciena WaveLogic 5 Nano 400ZR

25th June 2021

Ciena’s WaveLogic™ 5 Nano (WL5n) 400ZR Transceiver incorporates Ciena’s advanced coherent optical technology to deliver footprint-optimized, 400G interconnect for single-span Data Center Interconnect (DCI), and high-capacity access applications.  WL5n 400ZR supports both OIF-compliant, interoperable 400GbE transmission at 60Gbaud as well as additional optimizations that expand application scope:

  • Lowest 400ZR power (15W typical) for optimum host thermal profile and lower overall data center power consumption
  • Highest 400ZR spectral efficiency based on shaped transmit spectrum for interference-free, 64-channel, 75GHz DWDM deployments
  • Longest reach performance (140km) for broadest network coverage
