The common name of the 10 gigabit per second data speed for the Ethernet physical standard IEEE 802.3ae, established in 2002 by IEEE. Due to its capability for handling huge volumes of data transmissions, this standard is being widely adopted in enterprise networks and Multiple Systems Operator data networks.
 Optical Transport Network (OTN)
An ultra-high capacity wavelength division multiplexing network based on the concept of handling a two-point connection (light path) of optical wavelength signals. OTN architecture (construction technology and its protocols) known as G.872 was recommended by the International Telecommunication Union's Telecommunication Standardization Sector in February 1999.
 FLASHWAVE 7500®
A next-generation dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) system with 40 channels wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), capable of accommodating data signals (e.g. Ethernet, Fiber Channel, etc.) and SONET/SDH-type signals and which supports various communications protocols and topologies. FLASHWAVE 7500 lays the groundwork for the metro/regional transport network of the future. Its advanced optical core creates the ultimate in wavelength routing and topology migration flexibility to remove the fear and complexity from network planning decisions. Sophisticated self-tuning features enable touchless service and capacity activation to eliminate time-consuming, manual adjustments at every node, producing faster revenue and more satisfied customers. Advanced optical line cards provide efficient on-ramps for VoD, residential high-speed services and Enterprise data services across metro and regional networks over 1000 kilometers.
 10GbE-LANPHY over OTN interoperability trial
The interconnectivity test carried out primarily through the efforts of the Interoperability Working Group, led by Professor Naoaki Yamanaka of Keio University in Japan, of the Keihanna Info-Communication Open Laboratory and organized by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) of Japan. This Working Group seeks to promote the study of interface standards for direct transmission of 10GbE-LANPHY signals over OTN and to offer recommendations for standardization. Both Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and Fujitsu Limited are members. NICT, two telecommunication carriers and six vendors in Japan, and one vendor outside of Japan took part in the recent trial.
