NeoPhotonics has added new versions to its SFP+
transceiver product suite that enhance the existing portfolio of 6G SFP+
transceivers for Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) and 10G SFP+
transceivers for 10G Ethernet and OC-192/STM-64 SONET/SDH Transport.
NeoPhotonics says its new SFP+ transceivers also address the "green"
transition in networking toward lower power and smaller footprint
modules, which reduce overall power consumption in communication systems
and support the ever higher face plate port density necessary to meet
rapidly growing bandwidth demands.
The SFP+ MSA allows for a maximum of 1.5 Watts of power consumption per
module without Clock and Data Recovery (CDR), whereas the older XFP MSA
allowed 3.5 Watts, or more than double the power, for an equivalent
transceiver module. NeoPhotonics portfolio includes several versions
that cover both 40km (ER) and 80km (ZR) reach and support various
communication protocols. SFP+ transceivers without integrated CDR are
designed to support 10G Ethernet transport and comply with IEEE
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 GR-468 CORE qualification
requirements and cover the extended operating temperature range of -5 to
+85ºC (E-Temp). Both RoHS5 and RoHS6 versions are available. The SFP+
ER and ZR transceivers are available in sample quantities.
