The chart below contains the single user cost-efficiency estimates for OC-12 Internet access as well as the single-user cost efficiency estimates for FC/SONET (OC-12 and OC-48
While quite mature for OC-12 speeds, the technology is now maturing for the OC-48
speeds and starting to evolve for the 10 GHz requirements of OC-192.
The regional ring connects the local rings and operates at 2.488Gbps (OC-48
); this ring then connects to the long-haul networks for transport around the globe.
This customer-premise device is "enterprise-ready" with OC-3, OC-12 and OC-48
connectivity, enabling the majority of enterprises to easily connect their storage networks to carriers' ubiquitous SONET services for high-performance, cost-effective extended storage networking.
These devices are well suited for phase-locked loop applications as well as clock and data recovery, and clock smoothing circuits used in OC-12, OC-48
and OC-192 SONET/SDH systems.
A variety of architectural implementations have been developed to support these functions and still maintain line rates up to OC-48
Also in the fourth quarter, the ISP's OC-12 transatlantic links will be upgraded to OC-48
In addition to housing two back-up generators, 65 Broadway will initially feature OC-48
connectivity and dual entry to provide a complete redundant telecommunications network.
China Unicom, a mobile telephone operator in China, has deployed Media Controllers from Caspian, a provider of multimedia traffic management solutions for IP and MPLS networks, with OC-48
trunks, across the country's backbone.
Virtex-II Pro X FPGAs are the first programmable ICs that can directly drive optical transceiver OC-48
SONET compliant systems and simplify SONET implementation for OC-192 data rates and above.
Operating at speeds above 7 GHz, the NBSG72A is said to be the industry's fastest PECL crosspoint switch, and it is suitable for high-performance applications at OC-48
and OC-96 speeds of 2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps, respectively.
The new Serializer/Deserializer (SERDES) product supports a broad range of system applications that require multi-gigabit serial interconnect including Gigabit Ethernet (GE), Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE), 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel (10GFC), OC-48
, OC-192 and InfiniBand (see figure 1).
