Hyperscale capacity with control

Rapid growth in internet traffic and the fierce migration to cloud-based services are creating an urgent need for more network capacity and flexibility. Today’s metro, long-haul and data center network operators need the power to address changing business demands in real-time while retaining simplicity and meeting evolving density and power requirements. That’s why we created our TeraFlex™ terminal. It can transport up to 1.2Tbit/s per channel and deliver 7.2Tbit/s in a 1RU chassis. It also features highly advanced capabilities such as fractional QAM modulation that ensures complete control over modulation format, symbol rate and channel grid. All this means that you can significantly boost the capacity or extend the reach of any infrastructure, providing the lowest cost per bit for any network.

Ultimate 100G client density

TeraFlex™ features a 1RU chassis serving 36 bidirectional 100GbE client ports, nine bidirectional 400GbE client ports or a mix of them.
Our FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ optimizes all optical paths over every distance, ensuring the lowest cost per bit for any network.

Fractional QAM modulation

Ultra-flexible modulation technique enables existing networks to carry significantly more data without OLS overhaul.

800G CoreChannel™ sled for long-haul links

With the addition of our CoreChannel™ sled, the FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ can transport 800Gbit/s over industry-best distances, making it ideal for long-haul network infrastructure and also submarine links. Using 140GBd subcarrier technology, the TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ is able to transmit 800Gbit/s over more than 1,600km. This provides an improvement in reach of over 50% compared with 95GBd technologies. Compatible with deployed ROADMs and with the best SNR metrics on the market, TeraFlex™ CoreChannel™ features multi-rate client support and can be configured for any mix of 400GbE, 100GbE and 10GbE services. This provides customers with complete flexibility and protects their investment as they migrate to higher speeds.

Open APIs

As TeraFlex™ is part of our FSP 3000 platform, it’s completely open and SDN programmable with open and standards-based APIs.

The power of automation

ICPs and CSPs are eager to leverage the benefits of network service automation. That’s why our TeraFlex™ offers fully automated, boot-and-configure operation. With zero-touch provisioning straight from the box, operators can bring applications to market faster for a vital competitive advantage. What’s more, the Adtran FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ delivers advanced streaming telemetry – a prerequisite for big-data-based network management. This provides operators with real-time performance data for total visibility and control.
