TruePulse would like to source NTK538EK and NTK538EM circuit packs for the Ciena 6500 platform.
The NTK538EK, HECI code WOWUBD9 / WOWUBD9EAA, is a 100G OTR WL3n Enhanced C-Band 1 x QSFP28 circuit pack. NTK538EK only supports QPSK modulation format.
The NTK538EM, HECI code WOWUBEB / WOWUBEBEAA, is a 100G OTR WL3n Basic C-Band 1 x QSFP28 circuit pack. The NTK538EM only supports 4ASK modulation format.
The 100G WL3N (WaveLogic 3-Nano) OTR card is an optical transponder and service channel interface that incorporates a 100G client with a 100G line interface together on a single-slot CP. Note that for both the NTK538EK and NTK538EM, either the SP-2 shelf processor (NTK555CAE5, NTK555EAE5, or NTK555FAE5) or SPAP-2 w/2xOSC shelf processor (NTK555NA) is requirement for the equipment to be provisioned.
In addition to the Ciena NTK538EK and NTK538EM, we are also searching for other Ciena 6500 modules. Furthermore, we are looking for modules for other Ciena/Nortel optical transport platforms including the the S/DMS TransportNode OC-48 NE, Connect DX/HDX platform and the CoreStream. We will be happy to make an offer on any Ciena optical networking equipment that you have.
