With new consumer and enterprise applications creating a surge in IP traffic, legacy technologies (ATM, Frame Relay) in enterprise and carrier networks are being pushed to their limits. As a result, carriers and enterprises worldwide are migrating to more flexible Ethernet/IP/MPLS based networks and 10 Gigabit Ethernet has become the technology of choice to aggregate traffic in local area networks, enterprise backbone, data centers and carrier networks. With more than $1B in 10GbE equipment shipments in 2006, 10GbE appears to be ready for mass adoption.
To date, existing 10GbE form factors like XENPAK, X2, and XFP have addressed the needs of low 10G port density environments. However, these form factors are less suitable for high density 10G deployments that require smaller form factors, lower power consumption, and lower cost. In order to accelerate the transition to 10GbE, a new small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) standard has been developed, delivering 10Gb/s data over Ethernet protocol while addressing the power, size and cost issues inherent in previous solutions.
In this presentation, we will demonstrate how JDSUís vertically integrated strategy offers high performance and high reliability solutions to address the needs of todayís high-bandwidth Ethernet applications. We will describe each of the link variants needed for a complete 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ product portfolio, including SR, LR and LRM. Finally, we will discuss the challenges that the market faces in order to produce each of these link variants at the lowest possible cost.
Join us on Wednesday, August 8th, at 9:00 a.m. PST/12:00 p.m. EST time, for this live webcast sponsored by JDSU. It's free.
What's more, when you participate in the event we'll send you a complimentary, newly designed, limited edition Byte and Switch squirrel
