OE Solutions Co. Ltd. has announced the production of single-fiber bi-directional SFP optical transceivers for CPRI and OBSAI standards with CWDM wavelengths. For the OBSAI application, the rates are 6.144, 3.072, 1.536, and 0.768 Gbps. For the CPRI application, the rates are 6.144, 3.072, 2.4576, 1.2288, and 0.6144 Gbps.
CPRI is the Common Public Radio Interface, which specifies the internal interface of radio base stations between the radio equipment control and the radio equipment. OBSAI is the Open Base Station Architecture Initiative.
The SFP optical transceivers can operate at all the CPRI and OBSAI data rates up to 6.144 Gbps within industrial temperature ranges, OE Solutions asserts. OE also offers the option of selecting a single-wavelength approach.
According to John Kwak, director of business development at OE Solutions, “Customers can now fully realize the cost and design benefits of utilizing CWDM wavelengths in a single-fiber solution. Having a single-wavelength option, customers can deploy a single-fiber bi-directional link with only one CWDM wavelength and double the number of links.”
