MARKET SUMMARY OBSERVATIONS AND COMMENTS
CoreOptics distortion tolerant 10 Gb/s transponder
product using MLSE technology is clearly a cost effective way to reduce the CAPEX for the next generation network builds while enabling a significant tolerance against Chromatic and Polarization Mode Dispersions.
Performance information available from transponders
include upstream/downstream RF frequencies and power levels, modulation, bandwidth, upstream packet loss rate, pre/post FEC error rates, and downstream signal-to-noise and modulation error ratios (SNR/MER) that are used to gauge the health of a digitally modulated carrier signal.
Developed by Civcom and ECI, this new transponder
will enable ECI's customers to reduce costs and experience performance benefits that full C-band tunable lasers provide for both metro and long haul networks.
Electroline status-monitoring transponders
also measure and store network and element metrics in the transponder
's management information base (MIB), which can be queried by Minacom's DirectReach(R) test agent for cable transponders
AM Networks enables VoIP and other digital services by increasing network reliability while lowering operating costs, with a comprehensive line of status and performance monitoring solutions for the Broadband industry, including DOCSIS transponders
, Omni2000(TM) Element Management Software and the BOSS(TM) Power Management Suite.
With options for amplifiers, transponders
and Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (OADMs/ROADMs), the SURPASS family of transparent optical network solutions - including the SURPASS hiT 7500 DWDM platform - helps service providers to make the most of application deployments.
This mission will be supported by a payload consisting of 6 active Ku-band transponders
and an additional Ka-band transponder
for inter-connections between Africa and Europe.
AMC-12 is a high-powered C-band satellite with seventy-two 36 MHz transponders
organized into three regional beams: North America, South America and Europe/Middle East/Africa.
Based on TeraSea's breakthrough FTDB(TM) technology enabling the design of 10 Gb/s, FronTera transponders
can reach over 200 km transmission without dispersion compensation.
Currently 10Gb/s transponder
modules don't necessarily interoperate or act as functional replacements," said Karl Gass of Sandia National Laboratories, and OIF Physical Layer User Group chair.
