Agilent Technologies Inc., Nortel Networks and Agere Systems have formed a multi-source agreement (MSA) for hot-pluggable 2.5Gbps (OC-48) transceiver modules used in metro DWDM optical networking systems.

The DWDM Pluggable Transceiver MSA has established a standard that specifies uniformity for 2.5Gbps DWDM transceiver package outlines, pin function definitions, software interface and electrical characteristics. Transceivers based on this MSA will provide transmit and receive interfaces for metro DWDM multi-service routers, multi-service provisioning, optical transmission platforms and digital cross-connects.

Agilent, Nortel Networks and Agere will independently develop and market the compact DWDM transceivers based on the new standard, ensuring that optical systems manufacturers have a choice among compatible sources.
