?Crossconnect?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Recovery device upgrades to OC-3 and OC-12 from Exar, which we summarised at the time by saying "Single-channel device is footprint compatible with competing Sonet/SDH CDR products enabling system architects to easily migrate from existing designs.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Patch cabinets increase cabling density from Brand-Rex: "Cabinets offer a capacity of up to 1728 patch ports in a 900 x 1000mm footprint.".

In June 2008, we covered the news from Molex UK - take a look at More options in optical flex circuitry which says: "FlexPlane optical flex circuitry provides a fully customisable means of routing fibre from card-to-card or shelf-to-shelf.".

Take a look also at the news release from Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe, Ethernet-over-SDH/Sonet IC enables optical access, as well as Head-end cables cover all broadcast types from Belden CDT, and Three-chip solution shrinks voice gateways from Octasic.
