The MiniPHY's compliance with the ITU standards and its excellent performance provide OEMs advantages in reducing the space, power, development time, and cost of high-speed optical networking equipment.
The MiniPHY module requires less than 50 percent of the board space required by current generation 300-pin subsystems. Its extremely low power dissipation (6.8 watts) helps keep system temperatures at appropriate levels, lending solid reliability and top performance to high-bandwidth interfaces found in switch routers, edge equipment, campus backbone switches, servers, and aggregators. Network equipment designers can dramatically simplify the creation of high-speed optical networking equipment with Network Elements' 10 Gb/s MiniPHY 200-pin ONM.

"The MiniPHY is a must-have for equipment manufacturers supplying the fast-growing intra-office, POP, and LAN markets. They can get an edge on time-to-market pressures, reduce power and design space and lower overall costs-all with a single plug and play module."
Network Elements' highly integrated modules are comprised of state-of-the-art optics, high-speed electronics and software, giving equipment providers a complete system for physical layer connectivity. This powerful combination offers more than hardware-centric transponders by providing users with software to easily monitor and adjust physical layer functionality. Network Elements is the only company providing a comprehensive hardware/software modular solution.
