Packet Switching (PSW) modules are highly scalable packet switching and transport modules for Ciena’s Z-Series Packet-Optical Platforms.


Optimized for high-capacity Carrier Ethernet transport, aggregation, switching, and service delivery in any of the Z-Series platforms, the four modules are distinguished by different port configurations:


  • PSW-100G supports one 100GbE CFP interface
  • PSW-10G20 supports 20 10GbE (SFP+) interfaces, or up to 8 GbE and 12 10GbE
  • PSW-10G10 supports 10 10GbE (4 XFP and 6 SFP+) interfaces
  • PSW-618 supports six 10GbE SFP+ and 18 GbE SFP interfaces
