10G Muxponder with Trunk Link Optical muxponders combine and separate lower‐rate optical signals to share a common higher‐rate optical fiber path. Supported data rates and number of ports are the most significant distinguishing feature between muxponder modules. The 10G Muxponder with Trunk Link provides two trunk ports using XFP between a pair of modulesfor a highly‐reliable point‐to‐point link. The eight module access portssupportseveral Ethernet and SONET protocol options. Other protocols and applications may be added in future updates. The 10G trunk (line) interfaces can be used independently,together as an aggregated 20G link, or to carry mission‐critical data over separate optical links. Client signals are delivered to a remote module over dedicated fibers using OTN2 with FEC options for extended range and signal integrity. The multiplexes and de‐multiplexes access traffic from eight SFP ports through a 10G XFP trunk line.In the 10G Muxponder application example below, two modules are connected by a trunk line in a “bookend” configuration. This trunk could be a direct fiber link or an aggregated signal route through intermediate DWDM devices. The second trunk on each module may be connected as a redundant link.
