OrisTel has been appointed by Norway-based Smartoptics as its first value-added regional distributor for the distribution of optical transceivers and optical transport networking products to corporate data centres, government and enterprise customers in the Asia Pacific region.


Open Optical Transceivers : A range of flexible modules that cover all network needs. Smartoptics Open Transceivers can be reprogrammed using “SmartHub”. Smartoptics’ optical transceivers handle all storage, data, voice and video traffic. Exclusively approved 8/16Gbps Fibre Channel solutions allow SAN networks to be connected simply and conveniently for up to 200 kilometres and more apart. For longer distance transmission of 100Gbps signals, its DCP platform can be used to address the limitations of data centre 100Gbps interfaces by bridging much longer spans than switches now usually support.


Smartoptics Cisco Collection : Smartoptics 16G and 8G Fibre Channel transceiver families have been uniquely approved by Cisco for use with its MDS 9148S, 9250i and 9396S 16G multi-layer fabric switches. The approvals also include the MDS 24/10 Port SAN Extension Module and the MDS 9700 48-Port 16-Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module. The certified solutions offer Cisco users a new approach to cost-efficient data centre connectivity through embedded networking.

The ability to synchronously replicate data between data centres is key to the successful implementation of a remote back-up strategy. Today, 16/8G Fibre Channel is the traffic protocol of choice for this type of storage area networking (SAN). The certified Smartoptics transceivers support connectivity for:

16G ER – single channel, CWDM and DWDM
8G ZR – single channel, CWDM and DWDM

The approval allows all transceivers to be embedded directly in to the Cisco Fibre Channel switches for simple, cost effective and scalable networking. The embedded solutions allow Cisco users to build scalable transmission networks for up to 8 CWDM or 80 DWDM channels over a single dark fibre connection.

The unique approval of Smartoptics embedded transceiver solutions with Cisco’s multi-layer fabric switches offers best in class one-stop solutions for data centre connectivity, making sure users get the most out of their systems budget.


World’s First Intelligent Distance Extending Open Line Networking Multiplexer Series :Smartoptics’ M-Series marks a revolution in DWDM networking. A truly open line appliance, M-Series is an intelligent 1U DWDM multiplexer combining the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of a passive multiplexer with the features usually reserved for traditional DWDM systems. Smartoptics is the only vendor whose complete end-to- end embedded distance solutions are layer 1 tested by Brocade.


World’s Most Power-Efficient 100G Open Data Centre Transponder :The DCP from Smartoptics enables a brand new way of building DWDM networks. The DCP portfolio includes a plug-and-play, high-density, enterprise-focused 100G modular transponder and muxponder family of products. The first of these is the DCP-101, the world’s most power-efficient 100G transponder. This 100G plug and play transponder and the DCP-2, a 1U by 19” chassis, add new capacity to existing DWDM networks and open line deployments.
