Opnext passes half-million 10G transceiver shipment milestone

Optical communications module and component maker Opnext Inc of Eatontown, NJ, USA says that it has shipped more than 500,000 10G transceivers. Opnext announced that it had shipped a quarter of a million 10G transceivers earlier this year.

“Overall IP or data traffic in North America continues to expand at a pace over 40% year over year. Service providers are investing to prevent a bandwidth crunch from their emerging video services,” says Daryl Inniss, vice president of market research firm Ovum RHK. “Equipment vendors in all segments are reporting strong revenue gains, suggesting that the market is continuing to expand,” he adds. “Opnext, a leading 10G supplier, continues to post the strongest sequential growth among the top ten OC suppliers.”

Opnext offers a broad portfolio of products in the 10G family, including 300-pin, XENPAK, X2, XPAK, XFP and SFP+, encompassing all port types within these form factors. The firm’s modules support SONET OC-192, SDH STM-64 and 10GbE protocols, enabling long-reach terrestrial transmission, metropolitan area network, optical add-drop multiplexer (OADM), access, enterprise switching, high-speed data and storage communications.

The firm says that its 10G module transceivers fully comply with industry standards from ITU-T G.691, G.709, and IEEE 802.3, and OIF recommendations, supporting electrical interfaces including SFI-4, XAUI and XFI (easing integration onto system host boards).
