Cisco Declares Common Availability of the NCS 1014 and a pair of.4T WDM Line Card

Earlier this 12 months on the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Convention and Exhibition, Cisco demonstrated the brand new NCS 1014 with the two.4T WDM line card based mostly on the Acacia Coherent Interconnect Module 8 (CIM 8). I’m excited to announce normal availability of the NCS 1014 and a pair of.4T WDM line card immediately. This newest era NCS 1014 platform helps 100G, 400G, and 800G purchasers and as much as 1.2T multi-rate trunksdoubling capability in the identical footprint because the earlier era of compact modular methods and addressing the sustainability wants suppliers search immediately.   

 The NCS 1014 is the newest in Cisco’s compact modular platform collection, which now contains precision timing help for enhanced monitoring insights and helps each layer 0 (photonics) and layer 1 (transponders) functionalities. NCS 1014 could be utilized to all kinds of use circumstances, together with standalone multi-haul transponders, QSFP-DD-based line playing cards, metro DCI line methods, and multi-degree ROADMs, combining these into a standard system for low-footprint necessities. 

This next-generation platform incorporates the state-of the-art Jannu digital sign processing (DSP) within the CIM 8 pluggable module from Acacia to allow multi-haul transport with as much as 2.4 Tbps on a single line card for high-capacity functions.  

Developments in DSP algorithms, excessive baud-rate optics, and 3D siliconization have sped time-to-market for this new 2.4T WDM line card. For our prospects, this implies huge capability in each C- and L-bands to allow high-performance networks for long-haul and subsea functions to move 100G, 400G, and 800G purchasers. NCS 1014 additionally gives a dense 3.2T QSFP-DD line card leveraging 400G Brilliant ZR+ optics to optimize house, energy, and price, whereas guaranteeing interoperability with multi-source settlement (MSA) requirements and routed optical networking deployments.  

Dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) stays one of many few areas in networking the place standardization has been sluggish. Incremental enhancements provided by proprietary options now not outweigh the advantages of standardization, and all Cisco line methods are open. Any vendor’s coherent transponder can run immediately over the NCS 2000, NCS 1010, and NCS 1014, permitting prospects to keep away from vendor lock-in (technically or commercially).  

Cisco is dedicated to open requirements and continues to take part in key interoperability boards, reminiscent of OpenConfig, Open ROADM, OFCnet, OIF, and TIP to develop open administration help for multi-layer, multi-domain, and multi-vendor networks. 

Get extra at Cisco PONC 2023 

We’re excited to attach with our prospects and companions to debate these and different improvements at our annual Packet Optical Networking Convention (PONC), Sept. 20-21, in Richardson, Texas.  

On the convention, attendees can see our lab and expertise the complete portfolio of present and future platforms, together with an illustration of the NCS 1014 and the two.4T WDM line card. Clients on the convention will talk about their routed optical networking deployments and have the likelihood to work together throughout the a number of breakout classes.
