Apollo 9600 series allows selecting from a rich set of transponder, muxponder, ROADM and amplifier line cards to tailor solutions to meet each operator’s unique optical networking needs.
All line cards can be used across any of three sizes of platforms without any engineering restriction, to create right-sized solutions in every location.

Continuous technology improvements ensure that all solutions are upgradeable and future-proof via pluggable or line card swaps.

Highly Tailorable

Any blade in any slot without engineering rules.
