AimValley and OE Solutions introduce STM-16 TSoP Smart XFP™

HILVERSUM, The Netherlands and GWANGJU, Korea, October 22, 2013 – AimValley and OE Solutions extend their portfolio of TSoP Smart Transceivers to include STM-16 over Ethernet.

In Carrier Ethernet networks the TSoP Smart XFP™ and Smart SFP™ enable operators to migrate and integrate their SONET/SDH transport network into a single technology packet network using cost-effective and low footprint transceiver modules.

Network operators need to consider how to migrate their existing customers’ services when upgrading their networks from SDH to Ethernet packet switched technology.

The TSoP Transceiver portfolio offers network operators a turn-key solution for upgrading their network from SDH to Packet, while preserving SDH connectivity for their customers. The upgrade to Ethernet is done by adding TSoP Smart SFPs or XFPs on the newly installed Ethernet switch equipment. The TSoP Smart Transceiver processes the SONET/SDH signal with full transparency, maintaining payload structure, protection protocols and synchronization end-to-end; this simplifies the configuration and service turn-up of SONET/SDH connections across a packet network.

TSoP Smart Transceivers can be used in several applications where existing SONET/SDH services need to be preserved during network migration. The TSoP module enables efficient and cost-effective migration of a SDH access network to Carrier Ethernet, eases the upgrade of SDH microwave links to Gigabit Ethernet packet radio and enables efficient use of DWDM wavelengths by adding a TSoP module to a switched Ethernet muxponder card in WDM systems.

“It is only two years ago that we tested the 1G Smart SFP in our lab. Today we are sampling a 10G XFP version. These powerful systems inside an optical transceiver open up a new range of solutions for our customers, such as Ethernet Demarcation at zero footprint and plug and play feature additions to deployed systems”, says Pieter de Boer, Managing Director of AimValley.

The TSoP Smart XFP is sampling with OC-48/STM-16 optical interface per ITU-T and GR-CORE specifications and will support various optical reaches over Extended Temperature range.

AimValley and OE Solutions will show the new TSoP Smart XFP module at the Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam, October 22- 24, 2013. You can find us at booth G45.
