  • Patent number: 9031092
    Abstract: A computer system and method for transmitting LAN signals over transport systems. LAN signals are generated in any client LAN compliant interface. A transceiver receives the client LAN signal in the LAN format. The client LAN signals are not converted to a SONET transmission format at any time before reaching the transceiver. The transceiver then converts the client LAN signal to an internal electrical LAN signal before re-clocking the internal electrical LAN signal. The re-clocked internal electrical LAN signal is then re-modulated into a second LAN signal. The second LAN signal is then transmitted to a transport system.

  • Patent number: 7711271
    Abstract: The invention provides for optical circulators which redirect light from port to port sequentially in one direction used to separate traffic in a bidirectional optical fiber transmission system. The invention provides for using two optical circulators in each span of bidirectional fiber so that the OSC channel can be transmitted in one direction opposite to the WDM channels. The invention also provides for a gigabit Ethernet path between chassis which is utilized for control traffic and customer traffic. The invention is placed in a non-critical region of the optical spectrum and is independent of all other chassis equipment. The invention also provides the advantage in alternate embodiments of providing the option of a second counter propagating WDM channel being transmitted along with the OSC to provide additional system capacity. The invention also provides the advantage in an alternate embodiment of allowing the OSC to be amplified through a raman source without the need of complete system retrofit.

  • Patent number: 7164692
    Abstract: A computer system and method for transmitting 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) LAN signals over transport systems. Standard 10GE LAN signals are generated in any client IEEE 802.3 10GE LAN compliant interface. A transceiver receives the client 10GE LAN signal in the LAN format. The client 10GE LAN signals are not converted to a SONET transmission format at any time before reaching the transceiver. The transceiver then converts the client 10GE LAN signal to an internal electrical 10GE LAN signal before re-clocking the internal electrical LAN signal. The re-clocked internal electrical 10GE LAN signal is then re-modulated into a second 10GE LAN signal. The second 10GE LAN signal is then transmitted to a transport system.
