DCI-Eco

The DCI-Eco is the latest member to its DCI product family.

The1RU DCI-Eco is a budget friendly, versatile line system specifically designed for data center interconnect applications. In particular, it has been designed to bridge a fiber link loss up to 18 dB and for up to 8 PAM4 DWDM channels. The versatility of DCI-Eco enables data center operators to pick and choose all the options that suite for their unique needs.

From one channel to eight channels, from 0 dB to 18 dB, from DIY to ZTP, the choice is yours..

Features

Application

DCI-Eco Series

MPB’s DCI-Eco series is a 1U single box solution with flexible configuration for Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications. This product line is designed to provide an integrated low noise amplification solution for C-band DWDM fiber optic links with up to 8x PAM4 100 G channels.
On the transmit side, the system is equipped with a MUX, an EDFA booster amplifier and an optional VOA

Two MUX options are available based on the maximum number of channels to be deployed:

Max # of Channels Starting Channel Ending Channel

8 Channel

Ch33 (193.30 THz)

Ch40 (194.00 THz)

4 Channel

Ch33 (193.30 THz)

Ch36 (193.60 THz)

Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP)

The DCI-Eco system is also designed with optional Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) capability which allows the system to automatically adjust all operating parameters without human intervention when turning up new links2. ZTP capability reduces potential human errors and saves time and resources when commissioning new links.

Interoperability Test Results

The DCI-Eco system has successfully passed long-term interoperability test with Inphi’s ColorZ PAM4 DWDM transceivers.
