Mintera Ships its 40 Gbps Optical Transport Platform

Mintera, a start-up based in Acton, Mass., announced its flagship product, the MI 40000XS, is shipping to customers in the North America and EMEA regions. Mintera's MI 40000XS is the company's 40 Gbps DWDM transport subsystem and is already shipping to customers in the Asia Pacific region.

Mintera's new platform features a patent-pending spectrally efficient modulation format and built-in adaptive dispersion mitigation technology to deliver improved chromatic and polarization dispersion tolerances. The company said the combination of these technologies makes 40 Gbps as easy to deploy as 10 Gbps transport.

The design of the MI 40000XS platform is based upon the emerging AdvancedTCA300 industry standard.
