Fiber-optic transceivers

Hewlett-Packard Co. in Palo Alto, CA, and AT&T Microelectronics Division in Allentown, PA, have signed an agreement to provide interchangeable fiber-optic transceivers for synchronous optical network/synchronous digital hierarchy and asynchronous transfer mode applications. The agreement defines size and common footprint, including the definition and function of the electrical-interface pins. The first transceiver to be offered will operate at 155 megabits per second, with subsequent models operating at 622 Mbits/sec.

Also, Hewlett-Packard and AT&T Network Cable Systems, Phoenix, have announced a memorandum of understanding to provide an interface between selected intelligent network elements that the two companies supply to telecommunications network providers worldwide. The companies will provide an interface between AT&T`s service management system and Hewlett-Packard`s service creation environment and service control point.
