TeraXion and Proximion Standardize FBG Dispersion Compensators

TeraXion and Proximion, which both supply Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG)-based dispersion compensators, announced the standardization of their tunable dispersion compensation module, for high-speed network systems.

The compatibility agreement covers the form factor of tunable dispersion compensators, limiting the maximum length and width at 150mm and 22mm respectively.

The companies said their compact plug-and-play module is half the total footprint of the competing Etalon technology and yet retains its competitive edge on optical specifications. Additionally, both the electrical interface and command set of the TODCs will remain standard.

FBG based Tunable Dispersion Compensators have been deployed in volume since 2003.
