TruePulse is looking to purchase Ciena NTK532DA and NTK552GAE5 circuit packs for the OM6500 platform.

NTK532DA, HECI WOWUA36, is a 1+8 OTN Flex MOTR, or a OTN FLEX MOTR 1x XFP/8x SFP circuit pack. It is a is a single-slot module comprising eight SFP ports that support a wide range of service client protocols, including Fast/Gigabit Ethernet (FE/GbE), SONET/SDH, Fibre Channel, ESCON, IBM ISC-3, Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), and DVB-ASI. Each SFP port can be provisioned individually for maximum flexibility, and up to four of the ports can also be configured as OTU1 line ports enabling OTU1 transport across the network. The card also provides one line-side XFP port that supports a 10G OTU2 networking interface in a pluggable form factor that uses WDM optics to easily connect to a next-generation OTN network. The card’s XFP port also supports gray optics for low-cost interconnect to higher-speed interfaces to be transported over 40G or 100G wavelengths. You may alternately know this as the Nortel OME 6500 NTK532DA .

NTK552GAE5, HECI code WOGUAS9, is a Midstage Line Amplifier 3 (MLA3 C-Band) circuit pack. It is a dual (pre-amplifier/booster) EDFA, which can be used for both edge and core applications.  The MLA3 provides support for a 96-channel 50 GHz grid (88 supported by software) and supports higher total output power than the MLA2. You may alternately know this as the Nortel OME 6500 NTK552GA.

Beside the NTK532DA and the NTK552GAE5, we are also looking to purchase other Ciena 6500 cards too.  In addition, we are looking for cards for other Ciena platforms, including the CNX-5 and the 5100/5200.  Please let us know what you have available.
