Xanoptix Unveils 200 Gbit/s Transceiver
XTM-1 can be configured in several ways. For direct connections at unparalleled speeds, Xanoptix manufactures a 72-fiber count ferrule for MT form factor multimode optical connectors. This allows the XTM-1 to simultaneously connect 36 transmitting and 36 receiving fibers point-to-point at speeds of 3.125 Gb/s per channel. For multipoint connections, XTM-1 uses board-mountable fiber connectors to transmit and receive through 12 multimode fibers with up to six other transceivers simultaneously. As a result of XTM-1's efficient use of board space, high-speed optical networks can be implemented using significantly less space and cost than traditional networking equipment.
