re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail This isn't about greater goals, this is about Harvey complaining that it's harder for him to make a buck. From his point of view, he may be right to complain. That's it.

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail If I was buying the stuff I'd think it's great, but since I'm making the stuff, from my point of view commoditization sucks...

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail Forgotten on the list of electrical transceiver vendors is Silicon Labs.

They, like Broadcom, have also implemented a line of 10Gig x-ceivers, all in CMOS. Very, very low power devices (lower power than even Broadcom). SiLabs also provides some of the best support in the industry.

However, as pointed out earlier, it's all about who has product now. Speaking for the electrical transceiver space (or xmit/receive pair space), Broadcom is shipping an entire family of OC-192/10GigE products:

BCM8110/8111 (SONET, no FEC)
BCM8120/8121 (SONET w/ dual FEC)
BCM8122/8123 (SONET w/ dual FEC, 10GigE, MSA)
BCM8130/8131 (SONET w/ dual FEC, 10GigE)
BCM8150 (SONET transceiver, no FEC)
BCM8710/8711 (10GigE, XSBI)
BCM8701/BCM8702 (10GigE transceiver, XAUI, EAP Cust. only)

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail I think in the old days they called this standardization & commoditization, which has always been a good thing for the industry, you know. lower prices, more options, standard products.

Are you also complaining that there are too many people making PCs and chips?

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail Harvey, you are mixing apples and oranges:
Apples: Optillion, Agilent, Agere, Blaze, and many others are making optical transcievers (E to O, O to E).
Oranges: Marvell, Mindspeed, Broadcom, and many others are making electrical transceivers (serializer/deserializers).
Non-Fruit: Tyco is a connector company, often stuck between the apples and oranges.

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail There are too many companies in the 10 Gigabit Transceiver Space. What are chances of these companies in the market place?

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail There are too many companies in the 10 Gigabit Transceiver Space ( e.g., Optillion, Marvell, Tyco, Minsdspoeed. Agilent, Broadcom, and Agere, etc.) What are chances of these companies in the market place? It would be interesting to find out the stories they are floatng. Same story: Too many companies with similar products in the telecom segment.

re: Blaze Hits the Xenpak Trail packing..backing or even bak...here is one more
in the article, what have we 300 meters for multimode or 300km.........mere 1000 fold difference.
