Bookham Technology Plc
Bookham Technology announces commencement of commercial shipments of 40 KM XFP modules
ABINGDON, U.K., Feb. 3, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Bookham Technology, a leader in optical components to enable the global communications infrastructure, today announced that it has commenced commercial shipments of a new version of its 10 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) IGF Series of XFP transceiver modules. This new version is capable of carrying traffic over 40 km of standard single-mode optical fiber at a wavelength of 1550 nm, while previous versions were designed for 10 km at 1310 nm. The XFP is an ultra-small transceiver module that was standardized by the XFP Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) Group to help lower the costs of 10 Gb/s optical networking applications. Because XFP modules are hot-pluggable while an optical networking system is in service, they dramatically simplify upgrade and maintenance activities and therefore lower operating costs for carriers. The commercial availability of XFP modules capable of transmission over 40 km fiber spans brings to optical fiber trunks the network cost savings currently provided by XFP modules to short reach interconnects.
