OTU Muxponder

The OTU Muxponder includes 4x100G into 1x400G Muxponder, 2x100G into 1x200G Muxponder, 1x100G into 4x25G Muxponder and 1x40G into 4x10G Muxponder, which can be matched with OTNS 8600 I/II/V series of 1U, 2U and 5U chassis.

Types of OTU Muxponder

  • 400G Muxponder
    The 400G Muxponder service access board from Sintai Communication supports 4x100G↔400G electrical layer multiplexing/demultiplexing and converts to 1 x 400G rate WDM standard wavelength optical signal to facilitate WDM of different wavelengths in the combining unit, and to realize the inverse process of the above process.
  • 200G Muxponder
    The 200G Muxponder service card launched by Sintai Communication supports 2x100G ↔ 200G electric layer multiplexes/demultiplexes and converts it into a 200G rate WDM standard wavelength optical signal.
  • 100G Muxponder
    The 40G&100G In-coherent Muxponder service access board from Sintai Communication supports 1x40G↔4x10G or 1x100G↔4x25G electrical layer multiplexing/demultiplexing.

What is a Muxponder

Optical Transmission Network Muxponder and Muxponder Technology

The optical transmission network muxponder is an optical-electric device that uses the optical-electrical conversion technology to realize the wavelength conversion function of the optical signal. With the development of optical networks, in order to ensure that each path of the entire optical network can always transmit optical signals of the same wavelength, use the same type of optical fiber and transmit the same mode of optical signals, in the optical network wavelength change, optical fiber type change and transmission mode conversion Where, 850 nm, 1310 nm, 1550 nm and other optical wavelength/multi-mode or single-mode transmission mode converters must be used to complete the task of optical wavelength/mode conversion.

In a nutshell, optical transmission network muxponder transform the multiplexed/demultiplexed optical signals into WDM standard wavelength optical signals.


In optical networks, muxponder technology is used to aggregate multiple services into a single wavelength/uplink using OTN mapping.

Muxponder technology uses ITU OTN (Optical Transport Network) protocol and mapping to reduce the number of wavelengths required to transmit data, making it the first choice for maximizing fiber capacity and simplifying future network growth. Today, more and more people are talking about the difference between muxponder and transponder, an optical device that is applied to realize point-to-point connections over long distances. Read the subject optical transponder vs muxponder to find more about transponder and muxponder.
