SONET-Compliant Transceivers Feature Low Jitter

A new family of high-density SONET-compliant optical transceivers for OC-3 and OC-12 data rates are now available. The transceivers meet ITU-T G.957 and G.958, and Bellcore (Telcordia) GR-468 and TR-NWT-000253. They exhibit low levels of jitter over the full Bellcore operating temperature range of -40( to +85(C. Plus, they're available in three different form factors: a 2 x 5 SFF (MSA-compliant) package, a single-port RJ-style package, and a quad-port RJ-style package. Each will be available in OC-3, OC-12, and a multi-rate version that will operate at either OC-3 or OC-12. Ideal for next-generation Metropolitan area networking equipment applications, the modules use multi-die hybrid technology to integrate a complete optical transceiver into a package the size of an industry standard RJ-style housing.
