Complete Storage Solution

Do you have data center Fibre Channel (FC) or Ethernet interconnect issues? HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution develops simple and cost effective embedded coarse or dense wavelength-division multiplexing (C/DWDM) systems that work directly in Fibre Channel (FC) and Ethernet switches instead of separate stand-alone systems. Synchronizing and replicating ISLs between data centers is key to successful implementation of a remote back up or disaster recovery policy. Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) has long been the technology of choice for transporting huge amounts of data over a dedicated fiber, but WDM systems designed for the carriers has made it inherently complex and expensive for providers. HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution offers an end-to-end, layer one, tested, embedded C/DWDM solution with the major FC switch vendors. Smartoptics M-Series intelligent C/DWDM multiplexer enables a mix of 16/8 G FC or 10 G Ethernet to be synchronously connected up to distances of 300 km.

Features

Unmanaged Embedded Course or Dense Wave Division Multiplexing Networking

The HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution delivers wavelength specific optical transceivers connecting directly into the Fibre Channel (FC)/WAN switch. It transmits the output signal from the switch as a specific optical protocol specific wavelength.

Each optical signal (16/8Gb FC /10/1GE) is transported as an independent course or dense wavelength C/DWDM wavelength.

Passive multiplexer gathers all these wavelength specific signals together and multiplexes them on to a single fiber network.

Simple “patch panel” approach for multiple data signals. Delivers a green data center (no power, noise, emissions), with a cost-effective method for data center connectivity up to 80 km.

Approved and supported by Brocade®.

Managed Embedded DWDM Networking

The HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution includes the M-Series, an intelligent plug-and-play DWDM multiplexer to provide integrated signal conditioning, dispersion control, and amplifiers. Extends the embedded approach for longer distances.

Handles all data protocols up to 100 G per channel in a simple plug-and-forget approach.

Cost effective Open Line Networking platform for corporate data center and data communications connectivity. Reduced complexity and low signal latency, true open line networking with no restrictions.

Ethernet and Fibre Channel extension with OSI Layer 1 Encryption

The HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution also includes the DCP-1610 high density multi-channel, multi-rate transponder module for Ethernet and Fibre Channel wide area extension.

The module is an ideal complement to the embedded approach when interconnecting existing devices over a DWDM network. As an option, DCP 1610 supports OSI Layer 1 AES-256 encryption for each individual channel, ensuring maximum security in sensitive applications.

Accepts any combination of embedded DWDM, transponders and muxponders. True open line networking with no restrictions.

HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution

The HPE Complete Smartoptics Solution reduces the number of data center interconnect fibers needed by transporting all types of traffic simultaneously together over a single dark fiber, delivering a simple and cost-effective data communications network.

There are no restrictions on the input types with embedded DWDM transceivers or transponders.

It is applicable to all synchronous data replication and distance extension applications.
