Trimac Networks has announced its intention to develop and market integrated 10- and 40-Gbit/sec transceivers with up to ten components in a single module within the next year. Trimac plans to merge high-speed optical and microwave technologies to create transceivers that are more manufacturable and deliver greater functionality in smaller packages at reduced costs, to speed the development and deployment of 40-Gbit/sec networks.
Current equipment and services are too expensive and inadequate for network expansion or future high-speed upgrades, claim company representatives. In addition, optical manufacturers have been challenged in developing cost-effective transceivers by attempting to incorporate electronics technology into their work. Trimac aims to deliver cost-effective 10-Gbit/sec transceivers scalable to data transfer rates above 40 Gbits/sec by applying a proprietary manufacturing process.
"Our team of optical and microwave specialists has developed a brand new highly-scalable manufacturing process that can deliver the cost-effective integrated transceivers equipment vendors and service providers require," claims Nisa Khan PhD, president of Trimac Networks. "Their work will speed the rollout of ever-faster data rates while also reducing the real estate needed to house these devices and to deliver increased functionality."
Incorporated in August 2001, Trimac expects to begin launching products within six to twelve months and is currently conducting a first round of funding.
