SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. -- Multiplex, Inc. announced the introduction of a short-reach transponder. The MTP-SR0 is the latest edition to the MTP family of 10 gigabits-per-second (Gb/s) transponders. It is designed for applications of up to two kilometers. The MTP-SR0 is based on Multiplex's advanced EML (electro-absorption modulated laser) technology, with the source laser operating at 1310nm. It offers significant advantages over 1310 nm distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, most notably superior Clear-EML Eye performance. The receiver portion is based on Multiplex's highly integrated RX192L, which gives the MTP-SR0 extremely high sensitivity. In spite of its outstanding performance, the MTP-SR0 is competitively priced when compared to less technologically advanced transponders. Multiplex currently offers a full product suite of high-performance transponders for current and next-generation optical networks that includes 1310 and 1550 nm EML-based units that cover all short and intermediate distances up to 40km; OC-192 (9.953 Gb/s), 10-gig Ethernet (10.3 Gb/s) and Forward Error Correction (10.7 Gb/s) applications, as well as a multi-rate unit that is compatible with all three of these data rates; and a choice of 200- and 300-pin packages. The inclusion of a true, short-reach transponder further bolsters Multiplex's already broad portfolio to ensure that it effectively meets the individualized needs of its customers. "The MTP-SR0 effectively rounds out our list of transponder offerings for the zero to forty kilometer range," said Daniel Gay, Multiplex's director of marketing. "It offers the same industry leading transponder performance Multiplex's customers have come to expect." Multiplex Inc.
