Highly flexible metro CWDM/DWDM optical networking platform for transport of storage, data, voice, and video applications over dark fiber and CWDM/DWDM optical networks. PL-400 is designed primarily as an efficient optical transport device, and is typically deployed as a CLE (Customer Located Equipment) in enterprise campus environments and in central offices or as service demarcation point for dark fiber providers and carriers. PL-400 supports point-to-point, linear ADM and ring topologies with facility protection in CWDM and DWDM optical networks.

The PL-400 supports up to 8 high-speed services (2Mbps–4.25Gbps) over CWDM or DWDM. Chassis are stackable and used with the PL-300 passive external mux and can serve up to 16 CWDM wavelengths or up to 44 DWDM wavelengths. All optical transceivers, both on the service side and on the CWDM DWDM-uplink side, are pluggable and replaceable allowing pay-as-you-grow budget planning and simplified maintenance. Each service is configured independently using PacketLight’s user-friendly Web-based management tool.


  • Interconnection of SAN and LAN islands over remote metro sites via CWDM or DWDM
  • High bandwidth managed service over dark fiber and CWDM/DWDM networks
  • CWDM/DWDM extension between central office and local exchange
  • Fiber relief for high-capacity multi-tenant buildings and campuses
  • Transport of SONET/SDH, Ethernet, Fibre Channel FC, and video services
  • Single fiber optical transition, reducing operation cost
  • Transport of video signal along with all other protocols: ideal for cable TV, broadcasting and carrier networks
  • Utilizing multimode fiber infrastructure to transport multiple GbE and FC services over 2Km
