OE Solutions packages APD into bidirectional SFP

SEPTEMBER 18, 2009 -- OE Solutions has introduced single-fiber bidirectional SFP transceivers for 80-km reach applications with OC-48/STM-16 signals and for 120-km reach with GbE signals.

SEPTEMBER 18, 2009 -- OE Solutions Co Ltd., a global supplier of optoelectronic transceivers for wireless and wireline optical communications, has introduced single-fiber bidirectional SFP transceivers, commonly referred to as BIDI SFP, for 80-km reach applications with OC-48/STM-16 signals and for 120-km reach with Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) signals.

Integrating APD into BIDI SFP package has been a challenge for SFP manufacturers because of limited space for APD and the required circuitry. This family of BIDI SFP with APD receiver enables the support of longer-reach applications for the metro WDM market.

Wavelengths options are available for both TDM and CWDM applications. As with most of OE Solutions' transceivers, the new product line satisfies industrial temperature requirements, i.e., -40~85°C.

"We are excited with this new BIDI SFP solution which enables the use of single-fiber solution in metro applications," says John Kwak, director of business development at OE Solutions. "Bidirectional single-fiber solutions are currently considered one of the most practical, cost-effective solutions for easier fiber management and cost savings. This will pave the way for further penetration of BIDI SFP transceivers in both access and metro applications."

OE Solutions will exhibit in booth #296 at ECOC 2009, Sept. 21-23, in Vienna, Austria.
