ICE-X 100G XR - QSFP-DD and CFP2


A Transformative Coherent Pluggable Solution

ICE-X 100G XR is an innovative solution enabling edge-optimized transmission, software configurability from 25 Gb/s to 100 Gb/s, and support for both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations. Enabling 100G transmission in only 25 GHz, ICE-X 100G XR provides twice the capacity per fiber when compared to traditional 100G transport connectivity solutions. ICE-X 100G XR is available in both QSFP-DD and CFP2 form factors. With integrated system level functionality, ICE-X enables seamless integration, simplified management and unparalleled flexibility.
