C-COR Inc. said it is expanding its “PLEXiS” transport-product line, adding several 10-gigabit products based on cable's new LAN/PHY (local-area network/physical layer) architecture.
The vendor said its “PLEXiS GXX Series” of 100GB products includes the “GXTX-9180” transmitter, the “GXRX-9182” receiver and the “GXTR-9184” transceiver.
The company added that the products use short-reach “XFP” pluggable optics for LAN-side connections. The wide-area-side link is provided by “ITU-Grid” dense wave division multiplexing.
The products help cable operators to use bandwidth efficiently for HD and video-on-demand services.
C-COR said it now offers up to 40 wavelengths per fiber, in GB-line rates from 1 GB-10 GB.
