re: Who Makes What: 40- & 100-Gbit/s Systems

Great overview!


Just one "little" mistake... RosTeleCom is a russian company indeed, so the installation of 40G backbone was in Russia and not in the USA.

Oh dear. Apologies. I must have subconsciously associated St Petersburg with the one in Florida. For the record, I am amazed to discover from my atlas that there are at least 6 Moscows in the USA -- in Idaho, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

I'll ask copydesk to fix the problem.

Hi Tim,


I'd like to highlight a couple of omissions/corrections related to Ixia's T&M offerings for 40/100GE:


1. In Table 3, there should be a "Yes" for Ixia against 100G T&M capability.


2. In Table 2, I'd like to see Ixia get credit for the first 100GE test in Japan (with NTT), and the fact that Ixia was the first T&M vendor to demonstrate 100GE traffic generation and analysis (in June 08), and first to demonstrate 40GE (in Sept 08).


FYI - anyone with an interest in learning more about the current state of 40/100 GE  standardization efforts might be interested in this video presentation by John D'Ambrosia, chair of the IEEE P802.3ba committee.


Thanks!
Cheers,


Alexis McDougall (Ixia)

H&C


Not really, because there is a limit to what I can cover in the time available. But, if it is of any help, a quick trawl through some downloads shows that 40G devices use such RF connector type as GPOs and V-connectors. There is, inevitably, an enthusiast Website at


http://www.microwaves101.com/e...


that lists more RF microwave connector types (with photos!) than I ever knew existed. It gives comments on characteristics and applications, which may help.

re: Who Makes What: 40- & 100-Gbit/s Systems Don't forget RF parts. Any info on 100G RF connectors from the author?
