Mysticom and Optillion demonstrate 10km 10GbE link

8 July 2002 -- Interoperability testing of Mysticom's MY3004 SerDes and Optillion's TOP3010 10G Ethernet PHY transceivers has demonstrated a 10km 10 Gigabit Ethernet link.

8 July 2002 -- Interoperability testing of Israel-based Mysticom's MY3004 four-channel 3.125Gbit/s serialiser/deserialiser (SerDes) XAUI 10G Ethernet PHY Transceiver and Sweden-based Optillion's TOP3010 10G XENPAK Ethernet LAN PHY transceiver module has demonstrated a complete physical layer optical communication link for 10 Gigabit Ethernet systems operating at an equivalent distance of 10km using standard 8/125 micron single-mode fibre.

The test set-up included an asynchronous, real-life application that transmitted a variety of data patterns, including the recently approved IEEE 10 Gigabit Ethernet Standard's Continuous Random Pattern (CRPAT) and Continuous Jitter Pattern (CJPAT). The MY3004 operated error-free for the duration of the tests.

Mysticom claims its 0.15 micron CMOS process makes the MY3004 the smallest-form-factor, lowest-power, 10G Ethernet transceiver on the market. Optillion is a principal member of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance.
