SerDes - Serilalizer and Deserializer also called as MGTs(Multi Giga Bit Tranceivers).
Xilinx Virtex2Pro has 2 types of Serdes. They call it as
Rocket Io 622Mbps to 3.125Gbps
Rocket IoX 2.488 Gbps to 6.25Gbps
U can find more information on the xilinx website

altera is also having Serdes in their stratixGx family of devices.

Serdes is used on SONET/SDH broadband ADM(Add drop Mux) and in other switching applications. Xilinx have few customers having proven designs using their MGTs.
