Device Interfaces Metro Ethernet To 10-GbE Optical Networks

Designed for line cards in carrier-grade switches/routers, 10 GbE/OC-192 MSPPs, and OTU2 DWDM networks, the PEMAQUID (S19258) XAUI-to-XFI 10G LAN/WAN/OTN framer/mapper/PHY device is reportedly the first physical layer device on the market that truly enables Ethernet to OTN convergence. The device integrates 10 GbE-to-OTU2 mapping modes, EDC, FEC, XAUI, and serial 10G interfaces to enable direct connection between 10G MACs, network processors, or 10GbE Switches, and XFP/SFP+ optical modules. A single PEMAQUID can take the place of up to three devices, a FEC/framer/mapper device, an SFI4.1 to Serial 10G physical layer device, and a bridge device. Available in a small 19 mm x 19 mm package, the device consumes 2.5W under typical applications. The S19258 is sampling now to alpha customers with general availability scheduled for March.
