You should most likely take a look at the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Modular Line Cards:

You can use either the A9K-MPA-1x40GE or A9K-MPA-2x40GE modules which support the 40G QSFP optics:

We just started planning to upgrade our 10G (and nx10G) links to 40G (on ASR9k). Quick scan through Cisco website revealed that there are no 40km optics available from Cisco. That threw a big spanner into the works as we have a bunch of links definitely over LR budgets.

So the question is - how do you do 40G in metro areas? Deploy some sort of amplifiers? Go through DWDM or OTN devices?

kind regards
