Gigalight has added a 120-km DWDM/TDM XFP Module to its portfolio of 10-Gbps long distance products. The new XFP leverages electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) technology to provide dispersion tolerance up to 2400 ps/nm. The module thus supports a transmission distance of up to 120 km at 10 Gbps without additional dispersion compensating fiber, states Gigalight.
Advantages of the XFP include low power (<3.5 W), small size, and low cost, asserts Gigalight. The XFP can be used in applications calling for conformance with a variety of standards, including:
- 10GBase-ZX; IEEE 802.3ae （9.953 - 10.312 Gbps）
- 10G Fibre Channel（10.518 - 11.318 Gbps）
- SDH STM-64 ITU-T G.691
- SONET OC-192; GR253-core（9.953 Gbps）
- SDH/OTU2 ITU-T G.709
- SONET OC-192 with FEC（10.709 Gbps）
