April 7, 2004 Bristol, UK-- Phyworks Ltd, a fabless semiconductor innovator announces that its advanced forward error correction (FEC) algorithm has been standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in its recently approved Recommendation G.975.1.

April 7, 2004 Bristol, UK-- Phyworks Ltd, a fabless semiconductor innovator announces that its advanced forward error correction (FEC) algorithm has been standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in its recently approved
Recommendation G.975.1.

Set to become the global standard superseding the current recommendation G.975, the new ITU specification - including Phyworks' algorithm - provides a standards-based platform from which operators will now be able to double the bandwidth capacity of existing terrestrial and submarine optical networks - without the massive cost penalties associated with such an advance.

"ITU Recommendation G.975.1 provides carriers and equipment vendors with the latest FEC algorithms, enabling higher network performance at the lowest cost," says Allard van der Horst, product manager at Phyworks. "Appendix I.5 describes Phyworks' advanced FEC algorithm and shows it to provide the highest net coding gain - setting new standards for high performance optical networks."
