Empire State Development funds New York fiber-based broadband projects
The Empire State Development (ESD) authority, New York’s chief economic development agency, will provide more than $5.8 million in funding for a pair of fiber-based broadband access network projects in the state. The funding is part of a recently approved slate of $24,928,640 for a variety of projects aimed at increasing economic development throughout the State of New York.The first grant, worth $3,175,700, will go to ION Newco Corp., a for-profit company based in Albany. ION has partnered with the Development Authority of the North Country (DANC) to pool resources, including DANC’s approximately 750-mile fiber route throughout the rural North Country of New York state, to deliver broadband services. The project will reach the largest population of unserved (121) and underserved (32) communities in rural New York, according to ESD.The project will see 1308 plant miles of middle-mile fiber throughout the area at a total cost of $41,121,479. The project began in September 2010 and is expected to be finished in March 2014.Meanwhile, SLIC Network Solutions, Inc., operating in St. Lawrence and Franklin counties, will receive a pair of grants from ESD worth $2,225,033 and $425,987, respectively. SLIC has previously developed and managed last-mile fiber-optic networks in Canton, Potsdam, and Massena. The first ESD grant will assist this project, which has a total cost of more than $30 million. The project includes the deployment of 660 miles of fiber-optic cable to bring broadband services to 5856 unserved households in St Lawrence County. This project also launched in September 2010 and is expected to be complete in March 2014.The second grant to SLIC will help fund an effort to deploy 136 miles of fiber-optic cable and buy equipment and electronics to bring broadband services to 726 unserved households in remote western Franklin County. The project has the same start and end dates as the other two.
pocketBERT pB10A offers 10G CDR, BERT, clock synthesis in single handheld package
San Diego-based startup pocketBERT Co. has unveiled its first product. The pB10A is designed to provide 10-Gbps clock and data recovery (CDR), pseudo-random bit sequence (PRBS) generation/checking, and bit-error ratio (BER) calculation in a single 105x144x33-mm unit.The pB10A will recover 10-Gbps SONET, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel clock and data streams in the entire data range from 9.95 to 11.3 Gbps. It has its own internal reference clock; however, an external reference clock may be applied if the user desires.In BERT mode, the unit will generate and check such 10-Gbps PRBS patterns as 231–1, 223–1, 27-1, and custom-defined patterns. This mode enables users to evaluate the performance of 10-Gbps components or links (with or without XFP or SFP optical transceivers) as well as perform DWDM tests by generating non-synchronized 10-Gbps traffic.Finally, the clock synthesizer mode enables the pB10A to be used as a frequency source over the range of 10 MHz to 760 MHz.In addition to the features mentioned above, the transmitter offers a polarity inverter and de-emphasis capability. Attributes of the receiver include:1.single-ended or differential inputs 2. 20 mV input sensitivity 3. Rx lock detect indicator 4. LOS/RSSI 5. polarity inverter 6. ISI compensation.Users configure and manage the pB10A through a PC. A standalone unit lists for $4150. A full kit, which includes the pB10A, a pre-configured 10.1-inch NetBook, and travel pouch, is available for $4500. Availability is 2-4 weeks ARO.
Enablence Technologies to sell its Swiss subsidiary
Enablence Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ENA) says it is going ahead with the sale of its wholly owned Swiss subsidiary, Enablence Switzerland AG (ENA Switzerland), originally announced in July 2012 (see “Enablence Technologies finds bridge funding”).The company has signed a definitive share purchase agreement under which ENA Switzerland will be sold to Albiva Holdings AG for a total purchase price of $2 million and the repayment of an intercompany loan over the next 12 months. The transaction is expected to close by November 23, 2012, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions and the usual regulatory approvals, including the TSX Venture Exchange. Paradigm Capital Inc., Enablence's financial advisor, will receive a commission of 3.5% of the purchase price.ENA Switzerland is the former Albis Optoelectronics (see “Enablence Technologies to acquire Albis Optoelectronics”). Albiva’s directors include the management of ENA Switzerland (see "Enablence lines up financing, second joint venture in China"), backed by European-based private investors, and as a result the transaction is considered a related party transaction. However, the independent directors have determined that an exemption is available due to financial hardship – under the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") – and so Enablence is not required to obtain a formal valuation for, and minority shareholder approval of, the related party transaction. The deal is expected to close in less than 21 days.
