Product Overview

The DSM10-5R, part of XKL’s DarkStar DWDM Muxponder family, provides 1G – 10G services through ten soft configurable channels—set to 5 channels East, 5 channels West. A network based on DSM10-5R systems can grow to 40 channels (400G) by adding the DarkStar Mux/Demux (DMD), making them ideal for point-to-point and rings, data center interconnect, as well as for those who are unsure about future bandwidth requirements. The DSM10-5R is easily integrated with other XKL muxponders, and with our distributed architecture, capacity can be added as needed.
