CoreOptics introduces 40G coherent MSA transponder module

CoreOptics Inc of Nuremberg, Germany and San Jose, CA, USA has introduced a 40G transponder module, which it says offers the lowest level network cost of any available 40G technology by enabling Dispersion Compensation Module (DCM) free transmission for over 2000km on standard single mode fiber.

Key features of the 40 Gbit/s 300 pin MSA compliant transponder platform are enabled by CoreOptics’ Coherent Detection Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, that the firm says offers significantly better performance in CD and PMD impairment mitigation for 40G applications when compared to current modulation schemes incorporating DPSK or DQPSK.

“I am delighted to announce our cooperation with CoreOptics in the market introduction of this disruptive technology for service provider networks deployment globally,” said Dr Bernd Schumacher, head of the optical networks business unit at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our SurPass hiT 7300 Transport platform was designed to meet service providers' distance and capacity needs, while enabling a completely dynamic, flexible and transparent network infrastructure. By incorporating CoreOptics disruptive 40G coherent technology, we have been able to dramatically lower the total investment cost of building and operating transport networks for our customers.”

“As Service providers networks need to scale rapidly to stay ahead of the exponential growth in the video traffic, our OEM customers are in high demand for 40G/100G interfaces that enable them to reduce the cost of their network elements while enabling disruptive value-add services for the end users,” said Hamid Arabzadeh, chairman of the board, president and CEO of CoreOptics. “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to enable Nokia Siemens Networks in their development efforts for a truly next generation optical transport platform by providing 40G coherent MSA modules that have set a new industry benchmark for distortion tolerance against CD/PMD impairments, while providing the lowest transmission network latency specification of any other available solution.”
