Product Detail

The DCP-1203 provides an economical solution for 100G and 400G transport, boasting a compact design, minimal power usage, and reduced latency. This product features three separate transponders on a single card, each capable of operating in either 100G or 400G mode.

On the client side, a versatile range of QSFP28 client types can be used for 100G, and QSFP-DD for 400G. The line side is compatible with coherent DWDM 100GZR+, 400GZR, and 400GZR+ QSFP-DDs. The DCP-1203 is engineered to cater to two primary use cases. The first involves converting from grey 100/400G optics to DWDM, applicable when it's not feasible to embed coherent DWDM 100G or 400G QSFP-DDs in switches and routers.

The second use case provides a demarcation point for signal hand-off, where the transponder offers a point to gauge performance data before transferring the signal to another system. This makes the DCP-1203 a versatile and efficient solution for various networking needs.
