Agilestar: Meeting the Standards for Transceiver Technology


Agilestar Transceiver
Based in Silicon Valley, Agilestar Corporation specializes in the design and manufacture of digital-to-fiber optical transceivers. With compliance to ISO 9000, RoHS6, IEC 60825, UL, TUV and CE quality standards, this privately held company retains manufacturing sites globally and an assembly site at their San Jose, California headquarters. Agilestar also maintains offices in the United Kingdom, South Korea, Singapore, Germany, and New York. Their product portfolio of almost 500 transceiver products has been utilized in applications across industries, ranging from the military to educational institutions to industrial conglomerates, including the likes of NASA, the US Army, the Pentagon, Verizon, Ebay, Viacom, Western Digital, Dartmouth University, Broadcom, Lockheed Martin, and many other prominent companies and institutions.Transceivers are advanced datalink technology which contains both a transmitter and a receiver. They are used to translate digital data (such as text, images, sound, and video) into light channel signals from which the receiving equipment can convert into proper information.

Agilestar makes transceivers which can facilitate transfer to speeds of up to 100 to 1000 times faster than the amount capable from regular internet connection. Agilestar offers products for a variety of systems, producing transceivers in the following standards: GBIC (gigabit interface converter), SFP (small form-factor pluggable transceiver), SFP+ (enhanced small form factor pluggable), XENPAK, X2, and XFP (10 gigabit small form factor pluggable).With Agilestar, the end-user can find any number of products with a wide range of specifications that address their needs. The company’s product portfolio conforms to many industry standards including certifications from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, FDA Radiation Performance Standards, International Safety Standard IECs, and many others.

One product sample, the AS-SX Small Form Factor Pluggable Optical Transceiver, demonstrates just a few of the specifications that an end-user can select from. These transceivers are Multi-Source Agreement certified, designed for Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE-802.3z compliant, contains an LC receptacle compatible with the LC duplex, and is class 1 laser product compliant according to the FDA and IEC. The company’s target markets include: enterprise end users, network equipment manufacturers, academic and research institutions, government agencies, and computer components distributor and sales networks. Agilestar offers products which can be scaled up for high density and complex multiple component-requiring high bandwidth customers such as telecommunications and network enterprise businesses (for example, AT&T or LG Nortel). Agilestar’s transceiver components can also be supplied to network equipment manufacturers for assembled products compliant with SONET/SDH, Optical Transport, or Ethernet network standards.
