Finisar extends links

Finisar`s FLX-2000 can increase Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet or ATM links--typically 50 meters--to 120 kilometers. The devices convert multi-mode fiber or copper connections to single-mode fiber connections via a Digital Signal Conditioner. Applications include remote storage, disaster recovery and extended campus LANs and gigabit-rate data services.

The Fibre Channel link extender is available now; Gigabit Ethernet and ATM versions are due by the end of the year. Pricing starts at $7,600.
