Enterprise, campus and dispersed data center network expansions increasingly extend fiber links directly to the end user. Cube Optics AG has recognized the need to upgrade bandwidths and to implement 40- and 100-Gb/s links, while participating in setting the IEEE 802.3ba standard for pluggable 40- and 100-G transceivers. The Network Cube optical layer multiplexing solutions are a means of adding needed bandwidth while preserving continuous and unencumbered operation of legacy services. Installing the new 40- and 100-G Base-LR4 transceivers over existing multiple 10-Gb/s dense wavelength division multiplexing metro links defeats the intended bandwidth augmentation, leading to a bandwidth decrease.
