By Deepika Mala
Champion ONE (News - Alert), one of the world’s premier OEMs of compatible optical transceivers, recently introduced its new, 40km SFP+ DWDM transceivers, which will soon be showcased during Light Reading’s (News - Alert) Big Telecom Event in Chicago.
The SFP+ transceiver is a hot pluggable module capable of supporting 10G Ethernet, as well as 10G Fibre Channel traffic over reaches of up to 40km.
The introduction of this transceiver helps datacom providers better optimize their networks by leveraging DWDM technology to support the growth of their network.
Officials said that the datacom and telecom providers are provided with greater flexibility and are also able to eliminate the need for costly optical transport equipment.
Recently, the transceiver was deployed by FiberCloud, to support its customers’ increased demand for a variety of colocation and cloud solutions.
“With the addition of Champion ONE’s new DWDM SFP+ 40km transceivers we are able to do just that,” said Sue DeFlorio, FiberCloud Chief Operating Officer, in a press statement. “By leveraging Champion ONE’s expertise, we added an innovative solution that supports those goals and helps us optimize our IT infrastructure environment.”
The DWDM SFP+ transceivers are available in 40 standard 100GHz spaced ITU DWDM channels. They feature digital diagnostics, also known as digital optical monitoring to allow for real-time monitoring of optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current and transceiver supply voltage.
“Champion ONE continues to bring the industry innovative, open standards-based products that meet our customer’s bandwidth needs. With more than twenty years history, Champion ONE continues to serve as our customers’ advocate and support their cost reduction and supply chain needs,” said John Jutila, Champion ONE CEO.
In March this year, TMCnet reported that Champion ONE has enabled service providers and businesses to better optimize their network with the release of its new bi-directional or single fiber 60km 10G SFP+ and XFP transceivers.
