How to Use It With the TCX1000-RDM20
The TCX1000-ILA is a dual inline amplifier you can use in your TCX Series optical network, along with the TCX1000-RDM20. The dual inline amplifiers supply amplification for two fiber spans. Optical control and management is dynamically controlled through the proNX Optical Director including managing the span loss for both lines and dynamically adjusting the amplification to compensate for loss of signal in the fiber.
The TCX1000-2D8CMD colorless multiplexer can be used to add/drop an additional 8 channels to the TCX1000-RDM20 and uses only a single universal port on the TCX1000-RDM20. The TCX1000-2D8CMD enables both single and multi-direction add/drop multiplexing, depending on how it is connected to the TCX1000-RDM20.
The proNX Optical Director manages and controls the TCX1000-2D8CMD through the connected TCX1000-RDM20. Through the proNX Optical Director, you can dynamically configure what channels from the TCX1000-2D8CMD you want to add/drop onto the TCX1000-RDM20 Line port.
Note: You must use coherent transceivers on the TCX1000-2D8CMD client ports.
Ports on the UFM3 (BT8A78UFM3) 100G Coherent CFP-M05 transceiver (CFP-100GBASE-CHRT) Ports on the UFM6 (BT8A78UFM6-I02) 400G Coherent MSA XCVR
The BTI7800-FMD96 optical multiplexer-demultiplexer can be used to add/drop 96 channels to the TCX1000-RDM20 by connecting the common/line port of the BTI7800-FMD96 to a single universal port. This configuration supports up to 96 x 200 Gbps coherent channels with 50 GHz fixed channel spacing.
The proNX Optical Director manages and controls the BTI7800-FMD96 through the connected TCX1000-RDM20. Through the proNX Optical Director, you can dynamically configure what channels from the BTI7800-FMD96 you want to add/drop onto the TCX1000-RDM20 Line port.
