OCP introduces MAN transceivers

AUGUST 23, 2007 -- Optical Communication Products Inc. (OCP) has announced the availability of its 80-km OC-192/STM-64 DWDM XFP transceivers for MAN applications. The announcement comes a day after the company unveiled 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ transceivers to support 10-km MAN applications.

AUGUST 23, 2007 -- Optical Communication Products Inc. (OCP; search for OCP) has announced the availability of its 80-km OC-192/STM-64 DWDM XFP transceivers for MAN applications. The announcement comes a day after the company unveiled 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ transceivers to support 10-km MAN applications.

OCP's XGL2SBMxx DWDM XFP product line is compliant with the G.692 ITU-T standard, offering 44 wavelengths on 100-GHz C-Band spacing with an optical link budget of 23 dB. The DFB lasers used in these XFP transceivers use an electro-absorption modulated laser (EML), satisfying the Class I Laser Safety Requirements in accordance with the US FDA/CDRH and international IE-60825 standards.

The modules are designed for multi-rate applications, supporting data rates ranging from 9.95 to 11.09 Gbits/sec. The DDM functionality adheres to the XFP DWDM MSA, enabling the end-user to monitor key areas in the performance of the XFP transceiver: internal temperature, DC supply voltage, transmitter bias current, transmitter output power, receive optical signal level, laser wavelength, and TEC current. Integrated DDM functionality also incorporates warnings and alarms to monitor these parameters.

Meanwhile, OCP touts the low power consumption of its new SPXG product line. The line is compliant with the SFP+ MSA electrical (SFF-8431) and mechanical (SFF-8432) requirements to support 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel applications.

The SFP+ transceiver integrates a 1310-nm singlemode distributed feedback laser (DFB) in an LC package and PIN receiver, satisfying the Class I Laser Safety Requirements in accordance with the US FDA/CDRH and international IE-60825 standards.

The modules also are designed for multi-rate applications, supporting data rates up to 11.3 Gbits/sec. The DDM functionality adheres to the SFP+ MSA, enabling the end-user to monitor such performance areas as internal temperature, DC supply voltage, transmitter bias current, transmitter output power, and receive optical signal power. Integrated DDM functionality also incorporates warnings and alarms to monitor these parameters.

Pricing and shipping information for both product lines is available by contacting OCP. The new products will be on display at ECOC 2007 in booth #15020.

Oplink Communications, Inc. (search for Oplink) and OCP have signed a definitive merger agreement. Upon completion of the merger, OCP will become a privately held company, wholly owned by Oplink.
