Internet Exchanges (IX) and ISPs require larger network capacities as more Internet users access more rich-content services over
faster access networks such as DSL, LTE, WiMAX, FTTx, etc. To meet these needs, IEEE, ITU-T, and OIF are working to define issues and new standards for next-generation 40 Gbit/s and 100 Gbit/s networks. These new standards use WDM transmission equipment and phase-modulation technologies to curb symbol rate but further expansion of transmission capacity requires higher symbol rates.
The MP1821A 50 G/56 Gbit/s MUX and MP1822A 50 G/56 Gbit/s DEMUX supports operation frequencies up to 56 Gbit/s to meet these needs. Moreover, a full line of versatile functions and excellent performance for R&D into 40 Gbit/s fast next-generation devices, and ultra-fast 50 Gbit/s optical modules, supports customers with the perfect solution for bringing new products to market as early as possible.
