Packet Optical

Data Center Interconnect (DCI) networks are under constant strain to support the massive growth in internet traffic in conjunction with the rapid move to cloud-based services. The underlying DCI optical infrastructure is very complex, expensive and is a closed hardware and software system. Data center operators are now demanding more open, scalable and cost-effective infrastructure.

Edgecore has designed the Cassini AS7716-24SC, the industry’s first open network packet transponder purpose built to enable network operators to easily extend and migrate existing metro and long-haul Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks to add new 200G capacities and extend inter-datacenter and Layer 3 services all in an open network platform. Edgecore also contributed the Cassini design specifications to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP).
