APRIL 17, 2008 -- Opnext Inc. (search for Opnext) has announced the availability of its DWDM-XFP and DWDM-X2 pluggable modules. These pluggable modules complement the existing Opnext 10-Gbit/sec DWDM 300-pin and XENPAK portfolio by delivering a smaller size and power footprint to DWDM networking applications.
The TRF7061FN DWDM-XFP and TRT7063EN DWDM-X2 wavelength-specific pluggable modules are offered at ITU-T 100-GHz channel spacing. The module transmitter exceeds industry requirements of 80 km of standard singlemode fiber or 1,600 picoseconds of dispersion, Opnext says.
The company asserts that the modules' small footprint and low power consumption of a maximum of 4W enable the highest board density in the industry. The XFP product is protocol independent and operates at multiple data rates from the SONET 9.95-Gbit/sec data rate to the 10GbE + FEC data rate of 11.1 Gbits/sec.
