IP Traffic Performance Test for Video System/43.5Gbps BERT System
[B] Abstract:
Conventionally, two measuring instruments are used for testing IP networks. One for measuring the performance of routers as well as networks by applying simulated load to them, and the other is to perform traffic monitoring and analysis while connected to an actual network. These two standalone test functions are integrated into a single portable unit (MD1230A) which eliminates the double capital investment and improves testing efficiency. With its 5 interface module slots, one unit can accommodate simultaneous full wire- speed testing on any port combination up to forty (40) 10/100 Ethernet, ten (10) GbE, five (5) OC-48c and five (5) OC-192c. Its pass-through mode enables easy in-service traffic monitoring and traffic mapping of IP data flow between the peers. In the field of transmission technology centering on metro networks, there has been extensive research and development to realize a 40 Gbit/s (OC768,STM256) TDM/WDM transmission system. Anritsu can offer 43.5 Gbit/s BERT System, the ME7760A, can be used in combination with the 43.5 Gbit/s MUX/DEMUX and 12.5 Gbit/s 4-channel measuring instrument to evaluate 40 Gbit/s (OC768,STM256) transmission systems and modules.

Opto-electronics Packaging Technology for the last 1 m
[B] Abstract:
ASET's R&D efforts on opto-electronics packaging technology for terabit throughput are reviewed. To establish opto-electronics packaging technologies for high-speed routers and information appliances, we have been researching the following areas; an OE-MCM (Opto-Electronic Multi Chip Module) for low-cost high-speed processing, an AIP (Active-InterPoser) for LSIs that increases bit rate (>1.25 Gbps) and makes for a smaller interface with optical signals, and an OE-board with optical right-angled multi-channel connectors for three-dimensional board-level assembly structures. We will demonstrate the following packaging technologies: (1) Optical waveguide film lamination technique: This technique is versatile and reduces the cost of the OE-MCM. The waveguide film has a 0.3-0.5 dB/cm loss and is laminated on the printed circuit board. (2) AIP: The driver and receiver ICs, photo diode and laser diode are three-dimensionally stacked and integrated. (3) Self-Written Waveguide: The waveguide exploits a unique automatic fiber-coupling method. Optical coupling is complete even if there is a few dozen of microns miss-alignment between fibers. (4) SMOP (Small Multi/Demultiplexer consisting of Optical Elements): This is a compact Multi/Demultiplexer for four-wavelength CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) of the same dimension as the MT ferrule. (5) Opto-electronic Subrack: This device consists of an optical backplane, fiber bending right-angled multi-channel connectors, optical boards and OE-MCMs. This work was performed under the management of ASET and was supported by NEDO (New Energy and industrial technology Development Organization)

RHiNET-3/SW: High Performance Optical Network Switch for Parallel Computing Environment
[B] Abstract:
RHiNET-3/SW is an optical network switch that enables high-performance parallel computing in a floor- or building-area environment. It can provide 10-Gbps x 8-port network switching with 1-km transmission length using 12-channel parallel optical links. The switch consists of eight pairs of 10-Gbps optical link modules, one-chip CMOS ASIC switch LSI and four CMOS ASIC deskew-LSIs. Each optical link module transmits 8B10B encoded 10-bit characters and a 1-bit transmission clock at a data rate of 1.25 Gbps. The deskew-LSI can adjust the skew of 256 ns in 1-km multi-mode fiber ribbons. By the frame synchronization used in the deskew-LSI, RHiNET-3/SW provides a long-transmission-length synchronized parallel optical data transmission. RHiNET-3/SW provides topology-free, deadlock-free and reliable network communication for the high-performance parallel computing. In order to build topology-free and deadlock-free network, the switch supports 32 virtual channels with 640-kByte buffer memory. By using large amount of embedded memory on the switch LSI, RHiNET-3/SW allows low-latency, high-bandwidth performance. To provide highly reliable network, the switch uses hop-by-hop retransmission mechanism. This mechanism does not require any software procedure such as TCP to maintain reliability. We produced a cabinet of RHiNET-3/SW as 1-unit height and a prototype system of RHiNET-3 in 19-inch rack. RHiNET-3/SW enables high-bandwidth (80 Gbps), and long-transmission-length(1 km) network communication by means of distributed parallel computing. This work is done with Real World Computing Partnership (RWCP) Tsukuba research center and RWCP optical interconnection Hitachi laboratory.

[A] Title:
Small 4 Channel 2x2 MEMS Optical Switch
[B] Abstract:
We propose the novel popup-type 4 channels 2x2 MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) optical switch suitable for OADM /OXC. The switch is fabricated by using micromachine technology. The optical switch consists of four 2x2 MEMS optical switch elements including a switching device, four V-grooves and four lensed fibers. The switching device has a movable plate and micro-mirrors. The size of the 2x2 switching device is 2.0x2.0x0.7mm3 and the size of the 4 channels optical switch module is only 34.0x25.4x4.8mm3, remarkably small size compare to other optical switches.The switching principle is to move micro- mirrors into and out of optical paths by an electrostatic actuator. Since the mirror operation is digital, complex control systems are not required. The switching voltage is less than 100V. This switch has a unique micro-mirror structure like wings that gives the large coupling tolerance to both angular misalignment and axial misalignment. Even if these misalignments occur, the direction of optical propagation is not changed. Moreover, the small coupling loss is realized by the use of (110) sidewall micro-mirrors and (111) sidewall V-grooves in a (100) silicon wafer

xDSL on Fiber system (ArtFiber system)
[B] Abstract:
Recently, broadband access is expanding rapidly in Japan, particularly growth of ADSL access is remarkable. But this ADSL system cannot travel long distance due to attenuation on copper line. So, there are still many subscribers who cannot receive broadband access service due to distance even though they want to. The ArtFiber system is one solution that can supply broadband service to such subscribers. ArtFiber is the abbreviation of "Analog & Radio Transmission system on Fiber" and transmits ADSL analog signals, which are the output signal of ADSL modem, on optical fiber. Hybrid type of technology implemented with the telephone wire (copper wire) and optical fiber for an access system realizes new type broadband access system. It is the system that puts the analog signal of the conventional xDSL signals (ADSL, VDSL, etc.) on an optical fiber as it is, and extends xDSL service to a distance more at high speed.
