Corning and Xanoptix demonstrate high-speed optical networking solution

Aug. 20, 2001
Aug. 20, 2001--Xanoptix Incorporated and Corning Incorporated recently demonstrated what they claim to be the first optical networking solution to exceed 225 Gb/s over more than 1km of multimode fiber.

Xanoptix Incorporated and Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) recently demonstrated what they claim to be the first optical networking solution to exceed 225 Gb/s over more than 1km of multimode fiber.

The demonstration showed video traffic transmitted from a computer server and router, over 1.1km of Corning's developmental high-bandwidth 50 m fiber, through Xanoptix's XTM-1 transceiver and a crossbar switch, back through 1.1km of fiber and out to a series of client computers. The Corning fiber will be the latest addition to the InfiniCor family of multimode fibers. Xanoptix's highly parallel XTM-1 optical transceiver is capable of simultaneously connecting 36 transmitting and 36 receiving fibers point-to-point at speeds of 3.125 Gb/s per channel. The XTM-1's novel 72-fiber ferrule allows for a dense 6x12 array of multimode fibers within a single MT form factor connector.
