Technologies and Products
The project enables production of high-performance Compass routers using electro-optical information transfer at the level of individual chips for the Tier-1 edge opportunities and Tier-2/3 core opportunities segments: router A (10GE and 100GE) supporting both previous-generation 10GE (Gigabyte Ethernet) standards and 100 GE innovative standards that offer data transfer speeds of up to 100 Gbit/s; Router B (10GE and OC192), supporting both the 10GE standard and the OC192 standard, used for data transmission within a synchronous optical network (SONET) in the highways of large providers. The innovative architecture of routers Compass promises consistent, efficient scalability of the technology (unachievable in principle using existing technologies) as well as the following advantages: throughput capacity up to 800 Gbit/s; low weight and size of the router (82 kg); minimal data loss and optical interference within -20 to -30dB during transmission; high efficiency thanks to possible application of parallel optical channels; and passive connection board thanks to the replacement of copper wires by electro-optics, which reduces expenditure on cooling and electricity.
