Mitel-Teleoptix S.r.l., an Italian optical communications solutions provider, has chosen Applied Micro Circuits Corp.'s (AMCC) S19233 10Gb/FC/SONET/SDH/FEC Dual CDR IC technology for use in its XFP optical transceiver modules for 80km TDM and DWDM applications.

The Mitel-Teleoptix TXFP optical transceiver series was designed to support equipment manufacturers developing 10Gbit/s optical transport solutions for their networks. The modules provide cost-effective, high-performance connectivity based on hot pluggable technology and small form factor, claims Mitel-Teleoptix. AMCC's S19233 device is a 10GbE/Fibre Channel/SONET/SDH Dual CDR with electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) suitable for XFP MSA modules. While its EDC circuitry is one of the key enablers for expanding XFP applications to long reach DWDM, the device can also be used to design multiple modules ranging from 2km to 120km links with one footprint.

"Service providers and telecommunication companies today seek to upgrade their optical networks to answer the huge demand of bandwidth driven by Internet traffic growth while simultaneously improving performance and lowering the overall cost of installing and maintaining their networks. The key to the cost-effective upgrade of these networks is clock-and-data recovery (CDR) and EDC technology," said Daniele Conti, head of optical modules development team for Mitel-Teleoptix. "EDC technology extends the reach of optical links through the compensation of impairments found in the components and fiber optic cabling and through the improvement of performance. That's why Mitel-Teleoptix has selected AMCC's S19233, which integrates the CDR and EDC functionalities in one chip, as the natural choice to use inside its long haul and DWDM XFP modules."

"We are pleased to have AMCC's S19233 10Gbit PHY in production in the XFP optical transceiver module from Mitel-Teleoptix," said Neal Neslusan, director of marketing at AMCC. "Their ability to deliver superior performance, connectivity and flexibility for their customers clearly sets them apart in this market. AMCC's PHY technology is the perfect match for Mitel-Teleoptix's high-speed long haul network solutions and we look forward to supplying this technology that drives cost-effective telecom solutions and the convergence to optical networks."
