OIF launches 56-Gbps electrical interface projects
The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) has announced the start of three new electrical interface projects aimed at high-speed, low-power electrical interfaces for 56-Gbps applications. The interfaces would support the design of products that support data rates in excess of 100 Gbps.The projects were proposed last month at the OIF’s second quarter meeting in Dubrovnik, Croatia. They include: The Ultra Short Reach Electrical Interface project will define a link of less than 10 mm between an ASIC and an optical engine (OE) at data rates up to and including 56 Gbps. Such an interface will support the development of multi-chip modules (MCMs) and alternative packaging schemes optimized for minimum power consumption. The Close Proximity Electrical Interface project will define a link with a reach of less than 50 mm from chip to discrete OE at data rates up to and including 56 Gbps. This effort aims to facilitate an efficient board mounted OE at low power. The CEI-56G-Very Short Reach project will determine an optimal modulation format based on measurements, verification, and CMOS switch ASIC I/O capability. The project covers single-lane electrical I/O data rates beyond 28 Gbps needed for future chip-to-module applications, including single-lane interfaces for 40-Gbps modules and 8-10 lane interfaces for 400-Gbps modules. 
SSE Telecoms links UK data centers with Ciena 100G
UK service provider SSE Telecoms is adding 100-Gbps capability to its network backbone via its Ciena 6500 Packet-Optical Platforms, according to Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ: CIEN). The 100-Gbps links connect SSE Telecoms’ sites in Manchester and Hampshire to the Global Switch 2 data center located in London’s Docklands.SSE Telecoms, a strategic business unit of SSE plc (formerly Scottish and Southern Energy), specializes in high-capacity Ethernet, optical wavelength, and custom dark fiber offerings. It had already installed the 6500 Packet-Optical Platforms in its national backbone to support 10-Gbps and 40-Gbps traffic. The 100-Gbps channels, powered via Ciena’s WaveLogic processor, will run alongside this existing traffic, according to the systems company.The upgraded network enables SSE Telecoms to offer both 10-Gbps and 100-Gbps services while ensuring low latency, guaranteeing high availability, and reducing power consumption by 46 percent and footprint by 70 percent versus traditional 10-Gbps architectures, Ciena asserts.“SSE Telecoms’ customers expect the most reliable, innovative, and flexible connectivity solutions, and so we are always striving to develop a network that reflects these expectations,” states Mark Corney, director of sales and development at SSE Telecoms. “We have identified Ciena’s platform as industry-leading in terms of quality and service delivery, a quality that is vital for SSE Telecoms market requirements. This network enhancement will develop our existing product capability and allow customers to develop specific network requirements that are to the best quality available. Our strategy to specialise and drive high capacity network requirements means that with the Ciena platform we are able to provide customers with an exciting proposition.”Ciena says it has now shipped more than 14,000 coherent 40G/100G line interfaces to more than 120 customers across the globe, accounting for nearly 13 million coherent kilometers deployed worldwide.
Cyan chairman adds CEO title
Cyan Chairman Mark Floyd has added chief executive officer duties to his responsibilities, the company has announced. The move comes as the Cyan attempts to build on two years of 100% business growth for its packet-optical transport systems and software products.Floyd joined the Cyan board in 2007 and was appointed chairman this past January. Prior to his role at Cyan, Floyd was CEO at SafeNet, Entrisphere, Efficient Networks, and Siemens ICN US. Floyd has also worked within the venture-capital industry as a partner at El Dorado Ventures and an executive at Crosspoint Ventures. He will retain his seat on the board.Cyan founder Michael Hatfield will continue as the company's president to oversee overall solution strategy and drive development, engineering, product management, and marketing."Mark has made meaningful contributions to Cyan since joining the board five years ago. With Cyan's rapid global expansion underway, the timing is perfect for Mark to expand those contributions by joining us on a full-time basis,” said Hatfield. “I am excited to have Mark on board; his track record scaling companies in global markets, his success in working with global tier-one network operators and his experience leading a large software solutions provider will serve Cyan well."
