Product Review

The CISCO 15454-DMP-L1-38.1 offers versatile performance in dense wavelength division multiplexing with its support for 4 channels at a speed of 2.5 Gbps and compatibility with the Cisco ONS 15454 Multi-Service Platform, highlighting its suitability for high-capacity networks. However, its limitation to the C band and a maximum optical reach of 122 miles (195 km) for 16 channels might restrict its application in longer distance or larger scale network infrastructures. Additionally, the unit's tunability and support for multirate signals enhance its flexibility, making it a valuable component for networks requiring dynamic bandwidth allocation and efficient spectrum utilization.


The CISCO 15454-DMP-L1-38.1 is engineered for advanced networking requirements, specifically designed to enhance the capabilities of the Cisco ONS 15454 Multi-Service Platform. This module is pivotal in implementing dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology, allowing for efficient and scalable optical bandwidth across networks. It incorporates a versatile set of features tailored for high-capacity data transmission and network optimization. At the core of its specifications, the device supports four channels, each capable of a 2.5 Gbps speed, ensuring high-speed data transfer across the network. It operates on a frequency of 194.8 THz and a wavelength of 1538.98 nm within the C band, optimizing the DWDM application. Notably, the module is tunable, which provides flexibility in adjusting wavelengths to maximize bandwidth utilization and network efficiency. The CISCO 15454-DMP-L1-38.1 is designed to be multirate, accommodating different data rates efficiently, which enhances its compatibility with various networking requirements and ensures a broad application range. It features eight expansion slots equipped with SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) interfaces, allowing for significant network scalability and flexibility in connectivity options. Key components integral to its operation include the Timing, communications, and control card (TCC2P), which facilitates precise synchronization and control across the network. The Alarm Interface Controller (AIC-I) with an option for Alarm Expansion Panel (AEP) for ANSI systems ensures comprehensive monitoring and management of network health and security. The hardware is compatible with different shelf assembly options including SA-HD, SA-HD-DDR, or SA-ETSI versions, alongside fan-tray assemblies such as CC-FTA, FTA3-T (ANSI), or FTA-48V (ETSI), ensuring adaptability to various operational environments and requirements.
  • Capable of supporting up to 20 nodes per network, it offers expansive network coverage.
  • The device can handle 40 + 1 (OSC) wavelengths in the C band and 32 + 1 (OSC) in the L band, with the capability to scale up to 80 and 64 wavelengths respectively, facilitating vast data transmission across the network.
  • It achieves an optical reach of up to 106 miles (170 km) for 40 channels and up to 122 miles (195 km) for 16 channels in single span, point-to-point configurations, demonstrating its long-range capabilities.
The wavelength spacing is set at 100 GHz but is scalable to 50 GHz, allowing for denser wavelength allocation and higher data throughput. Designed for use with single-mode fiber types (G.652, G.655, G.653), it caters to a wide range of optical networking infrastructures. Supporting a ring circumference of up to 1240 miles (2000 km) and capable of managing up to 20 spans, the CISCO 15454-DMP-L1-38.1 is a powerful solution for extensive and demanding network environments. Its specifications and features make it a crucial component for organizations looking to deploy a reliable, scalable, and efficient DWDM system.
