Ciena’s WaveLogic 5 Nano (WL5n) 100G–400G Standard and Enhanced QSFP-DD transceivers integrate Ciena’s advanced coherent optical technology, offering power, space, and modularity benefits in a design optimized for 400G packet transport as well as enabling power and cost reduction for 100G/200G transport in 50GHz fixed-grid networks. The WL5n Standard QSFP-DD provides interoperable 400G single-span Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and multi-span metro packet transport, along with 100G/200G transport for access/metro applications. The WL5n Enhanced QSFP-DD supports both interoperable 400ZR/400ZR+ and high-performance PKT-MAX modes, delivering a space and power-efficient 400 Gb/s solution for extended-reach metro-regional packet transport, in addition to 100G/200G for legacy network modernization.
