Available space and power requirements are two significant factors when it comes to designing metro network deployments. The related cost aspects are equally important for those responsible for the operations budget. Space constraints are typical in metro environments, and especially in metro access networks where the need for ever-increasing bandwidth must be met within existing network facilities, such as telecoms huts, street cabinets and cell sites.
With the XTM II cloud scale metro platform, the low-power and high-density capabilities of the XTM Series are taken to new heights. Providing an eightfold increase in density over the previous generation of technology, and the lowest power consumption per 100 gigabits per second (Gb/s) in the industry, the XTM II is the platform of choice for space- and power-constrained metro deployments.
In addition, thanks to a wide range of chassis options with 1 rack unit (1RU), 3RU and 11RU, and available fuse rate options in 5 amps (A), 15 A and 25 A as shown below, the XTM II allows service operators to right-size their networking deployment and match existing power and fuse requirements.
Below are some examples of Infinera’s high density design capabilities:
