Optical module developer OE Solutions will use OFC in Los Angeles March 23-26 to highlight its new CSC LambdaRich optical transceivers. The single-fiber bi-directional CWDM transceivers offer an 18-fold increase in single-fiber capacity over grey-optics bi-directional alternatives, the company asserts.

The line supports a variety of data rates and reaches. Modules at 2.5 Gbps and 3 Gbps are shipping in volume, while models for 5 Gbps and 6 Gbps are sampling now, OE Solutions says.

The company expects the new line to prove particularly popular in mobile fronthaul applications, where fiber efficiency is particularly important. The optical transceivers are backwards compatible with CWDM two-fiber deployments, while doubling the fiber cable capacity.

The transceivers offer bi-directional transmission using two sub-bands within the conventional 20-nm CWDM window. OE Solutions accomplishes this feature via its proprietary Cooled Single Channel (CSC) technology, which the company asserts enables tighter control of laser wavelengths in the package sizes required for mobile fronthaul, business Ethernet, and other cost sensitive applications.

"CSC LambdaRich transceivers solve the urgent challenge of rapidly increasing mobile bandwidth capacity demands in a very elegant way as also evidenced by the high score it received at the Lightwave Innovation Awards," said Per Hansen, the company's new vice president of marketing and sales. " With this new solution, operators can add bandwidth quickly in a cost-effective way, without having to reconfigure the cabling of the towers."
