ITT Industries, Cannon Develops New Electrical SFP Transceiver for STM-1e Applications

NEWTON, Mass. - January 3, 2005 - Designed to comply with the Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) industry-standard multi source agreement (MSA), the new SFP-155E electrical transceiver from ITT Industries, Cannon delivers full duplex STM-1 electrical (155 Mbit/s) SDH transport over coaxial cables. Typical applications include Next Generation SDH Add/Drop multiplexers, Optical Edge Devices, MSPP and Switching Systems.

The hot pluggable module is fully interchangeable with STM-1 optical SFP modules, delivering system solution providers with instant STM-1 electrical support. Any system that already supports STM-1 optical can now support STM-1 electrical by using the SFP-155E. Additionally, a single card can now support both optical and electrical STM-1 interfaces, reducing system capital and operating costs.

The SFP-155E enables systems designers to reduce time-to-market at a lower cost, and with full flexibility. Serial identification (EEPROM) in accordance with the SFP MSA is available.

The electrical interface is fully compliant with telecom ITU-T G.703 (ES1) recommendations and can be connected using standard DIN 1.0/2.3 75 ohm cable connectors. The SFP-155E has been designed under a development partnership agreement between ITT Industries, Cannon and AimBridges. Under the terms of this agreement ITT Industries, Cannon will market and distribute the SFP-155E.
