Opnext adds long-reach module to pluggable 10G family

June 11, 2004 Eatontown, NJ -- Opnext, Inc. has extended its line of hot-pluggable 10-Gbit/sec (10G) optical subsystems with the introduction of the OP10SM-LR2 to the Optical Port Slide-In Module (OP10SM) Series. The OP10SM-LR2 supports applications at 1550 nm up to 80 km of fiber and, like each module in Opnext's 10G OP10SM Series, it maintains the SFI-4 system interface standard.

The OP10SM-LR2 supports applications at 1550 nm up to 80 km of fiber and, like each module in Opnext's 10G OP10SM Series, it maintains the SFI-4 system interface standard.

The hot-pluggable 10G optical module provides the essential attributes of a 10G XFP module, prior to general availability in the marketplace. The OP10SM product family enables increased port density, while minimizing first system cost by shipping only the optical interface necessary for initial deployment. The modules can be easily inserted in the field into an active system, and support VSR, SR, IR2, and LR2 reaches. The OP10SM is available today in all of these applications. Future versions include DWDM, very-long-reach, and G.709 OTN processing features.
