OE Solutions extends 40-km SFP+ to industrial temperature range

SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 -- OE Solutions recently introduced its industrial temperature-operating SFP+ transceivers for 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) 40-km reach applications.

SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 -- OE Solutions Co, Ltd. (search for OE Solutions), supplier of optoelectronic transceivers for wireless and wireline optical communications, recently announced the introduction of industrial temperature-operating SFP+ transceivers for 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) 40-km reach applications.

According to the company, this 40-km-reach SFP+ is compliant with IEEE 802.3ae 10G BASE-E, the SFP+ MSA, and digital diagnostic SFF 8472 Rev10.2 while operating from -40 ° C to +85 ° C case temperature. This 1550-nm transceiver is also RoHS compliant and has a typical data rate of 10.3 Gbits/sec with a link budget of greater than 15 dB.

The RSPX0SER-IT5 10-Gbit/sec 40-km SFP+ is the newest addition to OE Solutions' industrial temperature (IT) 10-Gbit/sec SFP+ and XFP module series, which also includes the RSPX0SLR-IT3 10-km SFP+; RTXX0SER-IT5 40-km XFP; RTXX0SLR-IT3 10-km XFP; and RTXX0SS1-IT3 2-km XFP.

"As SFP+ and XFP become the industry's de facto form factors for 10-Gbit/sec transceiver modules in the high-density port applications, expanding their operation to the industrial temperature range is paramount for use in the hardened environment such as outdoor applications," explains Dr. MoonSoo Park, CTO and head of engineering at OE Solutions. "At OE Solutions, leveraging our leadership in the industrial temperature Small Form Pluggable technology, we have pushed the long-reach SFP+ and XFP to extend its operation to the extreme temperature range for the first time in the transceiver industry."

OE Solutions will be exhibiting its IT 40-km-reach SFP+ 10-Gbit/sec transceivers at the upcoming ECOC'08 Conference and Exposition in Brussels, Belgium, on September 22-24, in booth #383.
