Long Haul 10 gig Ethernet over SONET
For the field trial, the Optillion TOP 4010 WAN PHY transceiver along with Nortel's Optera LH OC-192 DWDM transmission equipment and Extreme Network's Black Diamond 6800 10 Gbit Ethernet switch were used. One 10 GbE traffic pipe was carried between two points extending a distance of more than 600 km. For the Ethernet data rate, it was adapted to 9.95 Gbit/s to match the OC-192 requirement and then transparently SONET/SDH framed by the Optillion XENPAK module.
