OE Solutions Co., Ltd. introduced a Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) version of its Cooled Single Channel (CSC) bi-directional optical transceiver at this week’s European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) in London. The device, which supports the increasing use of CPRI optical transceivers in mobile backhaul applications, supports data rates up to 6.144 Gbps as well as multi-line rates under CPRI and the Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI).

The company debuted its CSC optical transceiver line at this year’s OFC/NFOEC in March (see “OE Solutions offers cooled single-channel optical transceiver”). This new device can support any CWDM wavelength range between 1270 nm and 1610 nm for mobile backhaul. It operates over the industrial temperature range (-40o ~ +85oC).

The use of a bi-directional module such as the new CPRI transceiver can result in significant savings in mux/demux and fiber requirements, asserts OE Solutions.

“Bandwidth increase in wireless networks has created a strong demand for efficient fiber optic usage. With the CSC solution, optimized for wireless backhaul applications, we offer great value to wireless customers who are experiencing accelerating bandwidth demand growth,” said John Kwak, director of business development at the company.
