PQ60T: 6x10G/40G OTN Framer/Mapper/FEC

PQ60E is a highly-integrated VLSI device designed for carrying 6x 10G or 1x 40G Ethernet services by using IEEE802.3 in LAN/WAN environment or by using OTN standard in Metro and Long Haul networks. It is ideal for Carrier-Ethernet Switch/ Router and DWDM systems as this device can be a simple multi-channel PHY layer device, supporting pure 10GbE LAN Carrier-Ethernet networks, as well as a highly integrated Framer/FEC device, supporting WAN/OTN network via its rich suite of 10GbE over WAN and OTN mapping modes. With its integrated 10G Physical interface and provisional Tri-FEC feature, it provides a seamless interface to XFP/SFP+ optical modules and ensures interoperability among multiple system OEMs.
