Third-party optical transceiver supplier Champion Optical Network Engineering, LLC (Champion ONE) has announced general availability of a new 40-km SFP+ DWDM transceiver.
The new optical transceiver enables datacom providers to use DWDM technology to support the growth of their network while eliminating the need for costly optical transport equipment, the company says.
The SFP+ transceiver is a hot pluggable module capable of supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet as well as 10G Fibre Channel traffic over reaches of up to 40 km. The module gives datacom and telecom providers greater flexibility without the added expense of lighting a link with an 80-km reach. These DWDM SFP+ transceivers are available in 40 standard 100-GHz spaced ITU DWDM channels. They feature digital diagnostics, also known as digital optical monitoring (DOM), which enables real-time monitoring of optical output power (Tx), optical input power (Rx), temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
The transceiver was recently deployed by FiberCloud, helping the nationwide IT and cloud infrastructure provider support its customers’ increased demand for a variety of colocation and cloud services.
“At FiberCloud, our goal is to ensure our customers are always connected, their data secure and that they are positioned for continued growth. With the addition of Champion ONE’s new DWDM SFP+ 40km transceivers we are able to do just that,” said Sue DeFlorio, FiberCloud chief operating officer. “By leveraging Champion ONE’s expertise, we added an innovative solution that supports those goals and helps us optimize our IT infrastructure environment. We were pleased with the implementation process and the speed with which the project was completed.”
The standards-based 40-km DWDM SFP+ optics are MSA (multi-source agreement) compliant, ensuring full network compatibility, as are all of Champion ONE’s optical transceivers, the vendor notes.
