NOVEMBER 14, 2007 -- Gigalight (search for Gigalight) has introduced a multi-rate SFP module for DWDM networks and another for Gigabit Ethernet and 1G Fibre Channel applications.
The new multi-rate SFP module is aimed at 100-GHz C-Band DWDM networks. The module features built-in temperature control and an APD-based receiver. It supports transmission distances up to 120 km and data rates from 100 Mbits/sec to 2.7 Gbits/sec. It's fully compliant with the SFP MSA and the SFF-8472 MSA standard.
The second module is a bi-directional hot pluggable SFP with digital diagnostics and LC connector, designed for 1.0625-GBd Fibre Channel and 1.25-GBd Ethernet applications. It features digital diagnostics and is also compliant with the SFF-8472 MSA standard. The digital diagnostics enable real-time monitoring of temperature, supply voltage, laser bias current, and transmitter and receiver input power. It can also enable quick location of errors in the fiber link to simplify maintenance and improve system reliability. Wavelengths supported include 1310/1550 nm, 1310/1490 nm, 1550/1310 nm, and 1490/1310nm.
