Sumitomo and JDSU Demonstrate Error-Free 100GE Traffic Transmission

Sumitomo Electric Industries and JDSU have demonstrated error-free transmission using IEEE-compliant 100GE optics -- an important milestone for the feasibility of pluggable optics for 100GE. This achievement included transmitting and receiving Ethernet traffic at 100GE through a Sumitomo LR4 100GE CFP Multi-Source Agreement (CFP MSA) compliant optical module using the JDSU Optical Network Test instrument (ONT).
