Siemens Selects CoreOptics for DWDM Platform

Siemens is employing CoreOptics' electronic distortion equalization technology on its SURPASS hiT 7500 DWDM transmission platform. CoreOptics' 10 Gbps 300 pin MSA compliant transponder features a Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimator (MLSE) electronic distortion equalization engine, which adaptively compensates for both optical and electrical distortions accumulated along the transmission link. Key benefits of this MLSE-enabled transmission product platform include reduction in initial capital expenditure by eliminating the need for the conventional Dispersion Compensation Modules (DCMs) and Dual-Stage amplifiers. The operational expenditure savings include simplification of network planning, installation and provisioning by way of a complete set of plug-and-play features. CoreOptics' distortion tolerant transponder enables transmission of 10 Gbps services on existing widely deployed 2.5 Gbps metro optical networks, allowing service providers to maximize revenue generation from their installed base. Siemens is now able to deliver a distortion tolerant 10 Gbps WDM transponder.
