Infineon Technologies has developed the X2 MSA transceivers with extended reach of up to 300m over legacy fiber, and optical network terminals (ONT) for passive optical networks (PON) solutions based on the Triport-BIDI optical module.

Using the EDC (Electronic Dispersion Compensation) technology, the X2 transceiver modules run at a data rate of 10Gbps using a 1,310nm laser, and are currently specified by IEEE 802.3ae over FDDI-grade multimode.

Demonstrated in the XPAK MSA form factor by the company, the EDC technology compensates for dispersion and other impairments that cause inter-symbol interference and performance degradation. This will allow enterprise networks to be upgraded to 10Gbps without replacing the installed fiber.

The Triport-BIDI optical module allows two-way digital communication over a single optical fiber, and features an additional receiver for RF video signals carrying analog and digital TV channels to eliminate the need for additional transmission media.

The system meets the broadband needs of entire communities by delivering voice, data and analog or switched digital video services over a single, converged access network. It is deployed in ONTs supporting the GPON (Gigabit PON) standard with speeds of 1.244Gbps downstream and 622Mbps upstream.
