I have to disagree, considering the amount of people I've had to convice that this really is a single 50GHz wave using 40G per second over DWDM system designed for 10G and that it was router

"LC - optical amplification - LC"

with no transponders of any kind. I've sent the Cisco product link on IRC
4-5 times in channels populated by otherwise quite knowledgable people.
Some didn't even know that LC existed even though it's been shipping for
over a year.

People have been under the impression that this was 4 10G waves, each
using 50GHz.
