Fujitsu Pushes Ethernet
RICHARDSON, Texas -- Fujitsu Network Communications, a leading supplier of innovative optical and wireless networking solutions, announced today new enhancements for its market-leading FLASHWAVE® 4500 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) to provide a more efficient way to deliver Ethernet services over existing networks. These features enable aggregation and transport of Ethernet circuits to deliver a cost-effective alternative to high router/switch costs. Other new features include an SFP-based multiport, multirate interface card, a full C-band tunable OC 48 line card, and a 140G switch fabric to support the advanced density that the platform can provide.“The FLASHWAVE 4500 platform has, and continues to be, an important part of metro networks for nearly every carrier in North America,” said Jim Hintze, senior vice president of marketing at Fujitsu Network Communications. “This MSPP is ideal for traditional Interoffice Facility (IOF) and small DCS applications, and is also widely deployed for dedicated customer rings due to its flexibility in providing multiple services from DS1 to OC-192 and Ethernet. With this new release, we are delivering several advanced features that will allow our many carrier customers to extend their investment in current networks while supporting packet-based services that their customers demand.”
imbercon Tests XFPs
LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. -- Timbercon, Inc., a fiber optic product and solution manufacturing company, announced today the availability of their new XFP Host Test Board. The Timbercon XFP Host Test Board facilitates the testing and programming of Timbercon’s XFP Electric Loopback as well as XFP transceivers.Timbercon launched their XFP Electric Loopback last month and was approached by customers with the need to program custom memory maps and test the functionality of their existing transceivers. Timbercon has been using the XFP Host Test Board during the development of the XFP Electric Loopback and has decided to produce the board for sale to customers that utilize XFP Electric Loopbacks and XFP transceivers. Existing users of XFP transceivers will be able to perform incoming inspection of devices prior to incorporation in equipment as well as analyze design changes or system modifications made to existing equipment.The XFP Host Test Board comes complete with operation software and a user manual to enable XFP programming and testing. The board features transmit, receive, computer interface, reference clock, and power supply ports. The XFP Host Test Board is designed to simulate an ideal environment for XFP module testing using Rogers 3003 PC board material and single-ended micro-strip transmission lines. These properties make the Host Test Board as electrically transparent as possible, allowing a more accurate assessment of the XFP modules’ performance.“Now that the XFP Electric Loopback and XFP Host Test Board products have been successfully released we will focus our engineering efforts on the development of an SFP+ Electric Loopback and SFP+ Host Test Board.” said Dr. Justin Redd, Director of Engineering.
Opnext Posts Q1
EATONTOWN, N.J. -- Opnext, Inc. (NASDAQ:OPXT), a global leader in the design and manufacturing of optical modules and components, today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2008.Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2008:Sales increased $11.5 million, or 15.8%, to $84.2 million from $72.7 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2008. The increase was broad based across most communication product lines, including XFP, 300 pin tunable, XENPAK, X2, and SFP form factors. Sales of 10Gbps and above products increased $9.3 million, or 15.5%, to $69.4 million, while sales of less than 10Gbps products increased $1.4 million, or 17.1%, to $9.6 million, and industrial and commercial product sales increased by $0.8 million, or 18.2%, to $5.2 million.Sales increased $16.4 million, or 24.2%, from $67.8 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2007, primarily as a result of increased sales of 40Gbps, 300 pin tunable, XFP, X2, Xenpak, and SFP products, partially offset by lower demand for 300 pin fixed wavelength modules.
Sales to Cisco and Alcatel-Lucent represented 44.3% and 10.2% of total sales, respectively, as compared to 45.7% and 14.3% for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, and 35.0% and 23.0% for the quarter ended June 30, 2007.
