EDGE™ 4x4 Mesh Modules are used to break out the 40G SR4 ports to create a 10G fabric, eliminating the need to break the MTP® into LC connectivity. The mesh modules contain four 8-fiber MTP's in the rear for mating to backbone trunks and break out to four 8-fiber MTP's in the front for connectivity to the electronics. These modules allow customers to take advantage of higher port densities per switch with lower power consumption and a lower cost per 10G port, as well as improves their ability to create port diversification when using QSFP+ transceivers for 1-G applications.
