Mount Pearl, NL - August 11, 2010 -- Avalon, a leading developer of IP for optical transport networks (OTN), is pleased to announce the availability of its 2D FEC for 40G OTN applications offering 9.3 dB of net coding gain with 7% overhead.
This latest addition to Avalon's suite of OTN IP offers size improvements over G.975.1.4 and G.975.1.7 based FECs, allowing Optical Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to implement smaller devices and realize power savings when enabling FPGA-based OTN applications. In addition to size and power reductions, Avalon's 2D FEC offers 1 dB net coding gain improvement over contemporary FECs based on the G.975 standard.
"Avalon continues to redefine the capabilities of Forward Error Correction and this latest addition to our catalogue of IP is a great example," says Wally Haas, Avalon's founder and CTO. "This development showcases Avalon's commitment to enabling OTN networks to go further, faster, now."
