Sequans promises mobile WiMAX gear by 2H 2006

European chip developer, Sequans Communications, says it will have chips available that will enable equipment manufacturers to launch base stations and mobile devices conforming to the 'mobile' WiMAX standard 802.16e as early as the second half of 2006.

Bernard Aboussouan, vice president of marketing and business development with Sequans, claimed that: "With our product roll-out, manufacturers will have the necessary components, hardware and software platforms, to begin development today and be first to market."

Sequans says its end-to-end WiMAX mobility products are designed to be compliant with WiBRO, the Korean variant of WiMAX and with the first system profile to be released by the WiMAX Forum before the end of 2005. The company says its products "are flexible and can be upgraded as 802.16e evolves following ratification."

Sequans' initial products will be: the SQN1110, a small size, low power subscriber station system-on-chip suitable for mobile devices; the SQN2110, a field programmable gate array (FPGA) chipset for base stations; and its S-cube software that "address the needs of equipment manufacturers designing mobile solutions as well as vendors planning to use IEEE 802.16e for fixed and nomadic applications."

 Sequans says that FPGA development kits will be available later this year, prior to the release of the SoCs and FPGA product set, scheduled for the first-half of 2006.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
