HP's SpectraLAN project is an approach to multiwavelength LANs with multigigabit-per-second data rates.
The first-generation SpectraLAN module will allow existing 62.5-micrometer multimode fiber-optic links to carry four times higher data rates than is possible with conventional methods. Four-channel error-free operation at aggregate data rates of 2.5 and 4.0 Gbits/s has been demonstrated over distances of 500 m and 300 m, respectively. The module is compact and potentially low-cost.
