The device's manufacturer, Vitesse Semiconductor Corp., says the chipset reduces costs and improves the performance of WDM and other optical communications equipment. The VSC9210 forward error correction device allows a link with a bit-error rate of 10-5 to operate at 10-20 by correcting transmission errors. In addition, it can be employed with 2.5-Gb/s telecommunications systems.
