ANAHEIM, Calif. -- OFC 2002 -- Optium Corporation, a leading developer of 10 Gb/s optical transponders, today announced the development of an Ultra-Small Form Factor (USFF) multi-rate (SONET, 10 Gb/s Ethernet, and SONET with FEC) and multi-distance OC-192 300 pin transponder that enables system providers to increase system performance while reducing power dissipation and cost. The USFF footprint of 2.0 x 2.2 x 0.53 inches maintains compliance with the existing 300 pin MSA.Optium will be showcasing this new transponder in live demonstrations here at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference. Optium’s new USFF transponder is the first un-cooled EML based transponder to transmit 10 Gb/s data over distances of up to 40 km at 1310 nm. The utilization of Optium’s proprietary (patent pending) un-cooled EML technology allows Optium’s transponders to offer industry leading electro-optical performance. Optium’s module is the only module in the industry to comply with the SONET transmitter mask requirements both with and without filtering. This high level of performance is achieved with power dissipations of less than 4.5 Watts. The low power dissipation is maintained over the entire specified operating temperature range of -5°C to +70°C. Optium Corp.For more information on OFC 2002, please visit: www.nottheofc.com
