MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany & RAMSEY, N.J. -- ADVA Optical Networking (German Neuer Markt: ADV), a leading global provider of optical networking solutions, today announced the general availability of its second-generation 10Gbit/s transponder for its Fiber Service Platform (FSP) 3000 metro transport system. The new 10Gbit/s transponder module supports commonly-used telecommunications protocols STM-64/OC-192, as well as 10 GbE applications including LAN PHY and WAN PHY. This combination represents a unique feature in comparison to other metro DWDM systems available today. Using state-of-the-art technology for all its subcomponents, the new transponder sets milestones in terms of performance, power consumption (less than 30 watts) and its size is approximately 50% smaller than current standard solutions. The 10Gbit/s OC-192/STM-64/GbE module offers a superior power budget of 30dB and its improved modular technology enables uncompensated transmission distances of up to 90 kilometers on G.652 fiber and up to 300 kilometers on G.655 fiber. For longer distances, ADVA offers dispersion compensation modules. An optional in-band-FEC enhances the power budget or alternatively relaxes the requirements on received OSNR by approximately 5dB. The card also supports B1 performance monitoring on the SDH/SONET signals and correction statistics of the FEC for all supported services. ADVA is exhibiting at booth #22122 at Supercomm 2002. The live demo will showcase ADVA's FSP 3000 carrier-class platform, integrated with the FSP 1000 metro access platform for delivery of multi-services at the edge of the network through to the metro core.
