Eudyna Devices Inc., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Oki Electric Ind Co. Ltd, Opnext Inc. and Sumitomo Electric Ind. Ltd have released the common specs for optical devices based on a 10Gbps miniature device multisource agreement. The defined specs are intended for optical devices capable of transmission over a distance of 20km or more.

The XMD-MSA enables the use of optical devices from multiple suppliers. It has been created to establish compatible sources of 10Gbps transmitter optical sub-assembly (TOSA) and receiver optical sub-assembly (ROSA) devices embedded into the 10Gbps XFP MSA module. The XFP module has been designed for use in large-capacity network and storage systems. This XMD-MSA covers optical devices that comply with 10Gbps interface standards such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Fiber Channel and SONET OC-192.
