Fujitsu, Intel and Lucent Technologies Join Forces to Further Harmonise 10Gbit/s Ethernet Transport Over DWDM Public Network Infrastructure

Frankfurt (PRWEB) January 29, 2006

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) and Intel, two leading vendors of silicon to the high-speed communications industry, and Lucent Technologies, a leading supplier of telecommunication systems, today announce that they have joined forces to bring a technology to market that will broaden the range of 10Gbit/s Ethernet applications carried over DWDM transport networks.


They have worked together with AimCom, an ASIC design house, to define a device that supports transparent mapping of a 10Gbit/s Ethernet LAN-PHY client (10GBASE-R) into an OTU2 optical channel, as defined in the ITU-T Recommendation G.709. The value of this approach is that it combines todays different mapping schemes with further extensions that are compliant with both the IEEE standard (802.3ae-2002) and the ITU-T (G.709). Customers benefit from this initiative, as it provides a path to a future-proof and cost-efficient mapping solution for 10 GE LAN client signals.


This new technology enables our customers to provide unified solutions for the broadband backbone”, says Bill Chatwell, General Manager of Intels Optical Networking-Components Division, and will ensure Intels industry-leading position in this market segment. We look forward to working with FME and are extremely pleased with Lucent
