Transceiver by Honeywell receives Fibre Channel Association endorsement

The Fibre Channel Association (FCA; a division of the American National Standards Institute; New York, NY) gave final approval to a new fiberoptic interface that incorporates a fiberoptic transceiver developed by Honeywell`s Micro Switch Division (Freeport, IL). The interface, presented by the 3M Telecom Systems Division (Austin, TX), is part of a low-cost fiberoptic interconnect. The transceiver provides a reduced footprint, designed to allow local-area-network original equipment manufacturers

The Fibre Channel Association (FCA; a division of the American National Standards Institute; New York, NY) gave final approval to a new fiberoptic interface that incorporates a fiberoptic transceiver developed by Honeywell`s Micro Switch Division (Freeport, IL). The interface, presented by the 3M Telecom Systems Division (Austin, TX), is part of a low-cost fiberoptic interconnect. The transceiver provides a reduced footprint, designed to allow local-area-network original equipment manufacturers to achieve the same port density of current copper-based systems. The technology is expected to be commercialized by mid-summer 1997.
