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.
Cabling systems exceed industry standards (September 2004)
Three new fully optimised Belden IBDN copper structured cabling systems are categorised by the applicable TIA/EIA category standard, along with each system's bandwidth and datarate capacity.
Pair provide faster line cards (June 2004)
Parama Networks and Finisar Corp are working to give service providers a fast and simple method to upgrade high-capacity Sonet or SDH circuits used in metro, regional and long-haul core networks.
SoCs pave the way for next-generation telecomms (June 2004)
Agere Systems has developed two breakthrough SoC product families that pave the way for wireline and wireless service providers to generate more revenues.
Next-generation framer/mappers (December 2003)
Next-generation framer/mapper devices are driving network transport efficiencies, says Deepak Sharma, Marketing Manager at Cypress Semiconductor.
Crossconnect covers Cat 6 cables (November 2003)
The new AMP Netconnect 610XC Category 6 crossconnect system uses an innovative shielding technique to provide a high level of performance in the same footprint as standard crossconnects.
Network tests optimised for multiservice platforms (September 2003)
EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering has a new network testing application optimised for carriers commissioning and turning up new services on multiservice provisioning platforms (MSPPs).
Backplane transceiver unlocks "hidden" bandwidth (August 2003)
The AN6425 6.25Gbit/s quad backplane transceiver is the first of the new AN6000 family of low-power high-speed serdes transceiver products from Accelerant Networks.
Framers cut costs in multiservice platforms (June 2003)
TranSwitch has added two new members to its Phast family of VLSI solutions for Sonet/SDH transport - the Phast-12N (TXC-06312) and Phast-12P (TXC-06412) multirate PHY framers.
Amplifier array drives MEMS-based crossconnects
Supertex has developed a 32-channel 250V amplifier array IC for driving MEMS-based optical networking systems.
Crossconnect grooms metro networks
The PM5364 TUPP 2488 is an industry-standard tributary unit pointer processor and crossconnect for OC-48 Sonet and STM-16 SDH networks.
