JANUARY 30, 2008 -- OE Solutions Co Ltd. (search for OE Solutions), global supplier of high- performance optoelectronic transceivers for wireless and wireline optical communications, today announced the introduction of its SFP+ (search for SFP+) transceivers for 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) 40-km reach applications.
The 1550-nm SFP+ has a typical data rate of 10.3 Gbits/sec with a link budget of greater than 15 dB. According to the company, the new transceiver is compliant with IEEE 802.3ae 10GBaseE; SFP+ MSA; SFF 8432 Rev3.2 (Mechanical Dimension); and Digital diagnostic SFF 8472 Rev10.2. This RoHS-compliant transceiver consumes less than 1.5 watts in the standard temperature operation range (0 to 70 ° C).
The RSPX0SER-ST5 10-Gbit/sec 40-km-reach SFP+ is a new addition to OE Solutions' SFP+ series, which includes the RSPX0SLR-ST3 10-Gbit/sec 1310-nm 10-km reach, the RSPX0SSR-ST1 10-Gbit/sec 850-nm 200-300-m reach, and the RSP85SV2-ST1 8.5- Gbit/sec (for Fiber Channel applications).
"Our customers constantly demand smaller form factor, lower power consumption, and lower cost transceivers for their high density, 10-Gbit/sec deployment," explains Dr. MoonSoo Park, CTO and head of engineering at OE Solutions. "The transceiver suppliers have responded to this customer demand by migrating from the initial 300-pin transponders to XFP transceivers, and then finally to SFP+ transceivers. At OE Solutions, leveraging our leadership of the Small Form Pluggable technology, we strive to exceed customer expectations," he asserts.
"We have pushed the SFP+ to extend its transmission reach as far as possible, resulting in one of the industry's first 40-km reach SFP+. In addition, our mature Optical Sub-Assembly (OSA) technology should lead us to succeed in our ongoing SFP+ work to reach a transmission distance of 80 m with less than a half size of its XFP counterpart in the near future," adds Park.
OE Solutions will be exhibiting at the upcoming OFC/NFOEC Conference and Exposition in San Diego, CA, on February 26-28, in booth #321, where it will present a live demonstration of its new 10-Gbit/sec SFP+ 40-km-reach transceiver.
