TCX1000-RDM20 Product Applications

The TCX1000-RDM20 is a highly flexible and open DWDM optical line system that provides reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexing and pass-through of channels in a multi-degree node. The TCX1000-RDM20 enables multi-terabit wavelength switching capabilities to compliment the high capacity routing, switching and transport interfaces on Juniper Networks routing and switching platforms. The TCX1000-RDM20 is primarily for data center interconnect (DCI), access and aggregation, and metropolitan-area networks and can also be used in the core.

Figure 1 shows an example of how you might pair the TCX1000-RDM20 and the TCX1000-ILA with your existing Juniper Networks routers and switches as well as our BTI7800 Series products to build an ultra, high capacity packet-optical network.

Transceivers integrated in the Juniper Networks routers and switches can connect directly to the universal ports on the TCX1000-RDM20 or can connect through an optical multiplexer such as the TCX1000-2D8CMD or BTI7800-FMD96, enabling you to route high-speed services over the optical network. The proNX Optical Director controls and manages the optical layer from the transceiver endpoints in the routers and switches all the way through your optical network.

Regardless of your application, you can mix coherent services on the TCX1000-RDM20. For example, you can connect 100 Gbps services from an MX Series router, as well as connect 200 Gbps services running on a QFX Series switch to the same TCX1000-RDM20.

The TCX1000-RDM20 supports up to 96 x 200 Gbps coherent channels at 50 GHz spacing in a point-to-point link configuration by leveraging the BTI7800-FMD96. The TCX1000-RDM20 supports an extended C-band spectrum from 191.325 to 196.125 THz (1528.578 to 1566.928 nm) which is consistent with 96 channel operation (196.1 to 191.35 THz channel centers) on a 50 GHz ITU channel grid.

Data Center Applications

For data center interconnection (DCI) applications, you can pair the TCX1000-RDM20 and TCX1000-ILA with the following Juniper Networks routers and switches for a complete end-to-end solution:

  • For Juniper Networks QFX10008 and QFX100016 Ethernet switches using the QFX10K-12C-DWDM line card (6 x 200 Gbps DWDM), the TCX1000-RDM20 enables an end-to-end solution with up to 19.2 Tbps per fiber.

  • For Juniper Networks MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms including the MX240/MX480/MX960/MX2010/MX2020, using the MIC3-100G-DWDM interface card, the TCX1000-RDM20 enables an end-to-end solution with up to 9.6 Tbps per fiber.

    For MX Series routers, you can also use the MIC6-100G-CFP2, which is a 100-Gigabit Ethernet MIC with CFP2 ports.

  • For Juniper Networks PTX3000 and PTX5000 routers using the PTX-5-100G-WDM physical interface card (PIC), the TCX1000-RDM20 enables an end-to-end solution with up to 9.6 Tbps per fiber.

    For PTX Series routers, you can also use the P2-100GE-OTN, which is a 100-Gigabit Ethernet OTN PIC with CFP2. Four ports that can be configured as 100-Gigabit Ethernet, 100-Gigabit OTN, or a combination of 100-Gigabit Ethernet and 100-Gigabit Ethernet OTN interfaces.

Access, Aggregation, and Metro Applications

For access, aggregation, and metro applications, you can pair the TCX1000-RDM20 with the following Juniper Networks routers and switches for a complete end-to-end solution:

  • For Juniper Networks MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platforms including the MX240/MX480/MX960/MX2010/MX2020, using the using the MIC3-100G-DWDM interface card, the TCX1000-RDM20 enables an end-to-end solution with up to 9.6 Tbps per fiber.

    For MX Series routers, you can also use the MIC6-100G-CFP2, which is a 100-Gigabit Ethernet MIC with CFP2 ports.
