Ciena thinks small with CN 4200 MC
Ciena Corp. has launched a compact version of its CN 4200 FlexSelect platform.
The new gear, dubbed the CN 4200 MC, is designed to operate on networks with space restrictions. Although smaller in physical size, the platform is still capable of providing backhaul and the delivery of metro transport applications such as business services, managed wavelength services and video distribution, the company said.
Capable of deployment to network edges, the CN 4200 MC can be deployed as far out on the network as the wiring closet, Ciena said. Like the CN 4200, the compact version supports remotely-programmable ports and can function as either a client or network interface.
The MC version also supports Ciena's family of CN 4200 line cards and DWDM/CWDM channel plans.
