MAY 22, 2007 -- Avago Technologies (search for Avago) has announced a new family of 10-GbE LRM transceivers incorporating electronic dispersion compensation (EDC). The new product family includes X2, XENPAK, and XFP.

Avago's new HFBR-707X2DEM X2 module is designed to reliably deliver 10G data rates in enterprise networking environments using multimode fiber. The HFBR-707X2DEM will be part of an interoperability demonstration of 10GBASE-LRM over 220 m of multimode fiber at the Ethernet Alliance booth during Interop Las Vegas 2007 in booth #2265.

David Cunningham, strategic marketing manager for Avago Technologies who chaired the IEEE 802.3aq/10GBASE-LRM standards committee, commented, "Avago has long been a pioneer in enterprise networking and our active role in the development of emerging Ethernet technologies is no different. We are heavily involved with defining the SFP+ 8431 standard which will define SFP+ for 10GBASE-SR, LRM, and LR products. Once finalized, this standard will drive the growth of higher density, next-generation networking equipment for demanding enterprise and data center environments."

Avago's HFBR-707X2DEM is compliant to the IEEE 802.3aq standard and the X2 MSA Issue 2.0b. It supports link lengths of at least 220 m on OM1, OM2, and OM3 MMF, provides a digital optical monitoring (DOM) and MDIO Management Interface that enables customers to monitor performance and other characteristics of the part. The HFBR-707X2DEM uses Avago's 10G FP technology and includes EDC functionality.

The modules are sampling now and will be generally available in Q207 through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
