    Hello everybody !!!

    I am interesting if there exists optical transceiver(s) which operates
    from cca 1Gbps up to 2.5 Gpbs and for distance up to 500m. This
    transceiver must be multimode (what means I want to use multmode
    fiber). I have found some transceivers which work in mentioned range,
    but these transceivers are all single mode. Also it will be very good
    if transceiver size is 1x9.
    I also need SERDES IC which also can operates from 1 Gbps and up to 2.5
    Gpbs and generate output/input (PECL or something like this)
    compactable with transceiver input/output.

    Thank you for your answers

    Multimode fiber has a lot of dispersion, so 500 m at 2.5 GBPS probably
    wouldn't work. Multimode fiber will splatter impulses on the order of
    nanoseconds per kilometer.
