10GE & OC192/48 OTN Framer/Mapper with FEC/EFEC(G.975-1 I.4)
Rubicon is based on AppliedMicro’s popular and industry-proven EFEC code, originally brought to market in AppliedMicro’s previous generation EFEC chip, Niagara. Like Niagara, Rubicon can run in both EFEC and GFEC (generic FEC or Reed-Solomon code) modes. The respective EFEC and GFEC codes in each device are also interoperable, allowing Rubicon and Niagara to seamlessly coexist on the same optical network. By allowing customers to realize the benefits of next-generation technology, while providing a minimal effort upgrade path from Niagara, Rubicon facilitates a faster time-to-market for 10G and 2.5G FEC applications in WDM and MSPP platforms. Rubicon EFEC is compatible with EFEC available in Yahara, Pemaquid, and PQx.
