NeoPhotonics (News - Alert) Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, has announced that new versions have been added to NeoPhotonics’ SFP+ transceiver product suite, enhancing the existing portfolio of 6G SFP+ transceivers for Common Public Radio Interface or CPRI and 10G SFP+ transceivers for 10G Ethernet and OC-192/STM-64 SONET/SDH Transport.
The "green" transition in networking towards lower power and smaller footprint modules has also been addressed by the new SFP+ transceivers from NeoPhotonics. Apart from reducing the overall power consumption in communication systems, these transceivers support the necessary higher face plate port density, therefore meeting growing bandwidth demands. Without Clock and Data Recovery (CDR), a maximum of 1.5 Watts of power consumption per module is allowed by the SFP+ MSA.
In a release, Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics, said, "The introduction of new SFP+ transceivers underlines our commitment to the high speed segment of the transceiver market. We are pleased to support our customers in their green efforts to reduce the power consumption and carbon footprint of their broadband networks, and to meet their growing needs for higher optical port densities on their equipment shelves."
According to the release, SFP+ transceivers without integrated CDR are designed to support 10G Ethernet transport and comply with IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3-2005 and 802.3-2008. Transceivers with integrated CDR are designed to support OC-192/STM-64 SONET/SDH and comply with the ITU-T Recommendation G.709 for Optical Transport Network (OTN) at the OTU2 line rate. All of these transceivers are designed to meet Telcordia (News - Alert) GR-468 CORE qualification requirements and cover the extended operating temperature range of -5 to +85C (E-Temp). Both RoHS5 and RoHS6 versions are available. The SFP+ ER and ZR transceivers are available in sample quantities.
NeoPhotonics is showcasing the new line of SFP+ transceiver modules at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE) this week. NeoPhotonics will also showcase its Fiber-to-the Home or FTTH transceiver products and PIC-based products for 40 and 100 Gbps.
