Mintera Joins 100G Group
“We welcome Mintera to the Road to 100G Alliance. Their experience in commercializing innovative and differentiated products based upon industry standards including the 300-pin 40 Gbps MSA form factor and the emerging ATCA300 industry standard, will be instrumental as we work to accelerate the adoption and ongoing development of a new era of next-generation networking platforms,” said Bill Weisinger, president and chairman Road to 100G Alliance.
Mintera develops and markets high bit-rate fiber-optic transport sub-systems for metro-core, regional, long-haul and ultra long-haul optical networks. Its unique, patent-pending Adaptive-Differential Phase Shift Keying (ADPSK™) technology enables optimal transmission of high bit-rate signals across ROADM-enabled optical networks, a configuration commonly used in long haul and metro infrastructures. ADPSK reduces signal degradation caused by interference between channels, and it provides “spectral efficiency” that allows wavelengths to be packed closer together to carry more data over longer distances. This approach allows service providers to maximize their network capacities. Mintera’s proven, proprietary technology offers a solid basis for the development of 100 Gbps solutions.
“Since its inception, Mintera has been driving the industry’s migration to higher bit-rates for optical transport with 40 Gbps products shipping today and 100 Gbps in the pipeline,” said Terry Unter, Mintera CEO. “We look forward to collaborating with other leaders in our industry to make 100 Gbps an economic as well as technical reality.”
