Optical Data Center Interconnect (DCI): Cisco NCS 1002 Lab

Foundation Lab

Solution overview

This topology utilizes two NCS 1002's for point to point transport of various sized wavelengths. Two slices are being used on each device: the first provides 4 100G clients mapped to 2 200G trunks operating at two different wavelengths; the second slice provides 20 10G clients mapped to 1 200G trunk operating at a third, unique wavelength. All client and trunk optics are connected via our Calient S320 optical switch. Wavelength 1532.68 on the first slice is routed through our NCS 2000 DWDM system while the other two trunks are direct connections.
