DWDM MSA Members Announced
Oct 2002
Alcatel Optronics, JDS Uniphase, Mitsubishi Electric, NEC Corp., Oki Electric and Sumitomo/Excelight have joined the DWDM Pluggable Transceiver multi-source agreement (MSA) and will supply devices that conform to the specification defined by the MSA.

Transceivers developed using this new specification are designed to help improve network planning, commissioning and maintenance of optical networks and reduce system downtime and inventory costs.

The DWDM Pluggable Transceiver MSA announced by Agilent, Nortel Networks and Agere Systems in June specifies uniformity for 2.5 Gb/s (OC-48) dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) pluggable transceiver package outlines, pin function definitions, software interface and electrical characteristics. Transceivers based on this MSA will provide transmit and receive interfaces for metro DWDM multi-service routers, multiservice provisioning, optical transmission platforms and digital cross-connects.
