Avalon’s 2D FEC improves power spec


Avalon, the developer of IP for optical transport networks (OTN), has released a 2D FEC for 40G OTN applications offering 9.3 dB of net coding gain with 7 percent overhead.

This latest addition to Avalon's suite of OTN IP offers size improvements over G.975.1.4 and G.975.1.7 based FECs, allowing optical equipment manufacturers to implement smaller devices and realize power savings when enabling FPGA-based OTN applications.

In addition to size and power reductions, Avalon's 2D FEC offers 1 dB net coding gain improvement over contemporary FECs based on the G.975 standard.
