Champion ONE launches Bi-Di CWDM SFP transceivers

Champion ONE, a supplier of standards-based compatible transceivers, has announced general availability of its new 2.5Gb/s bidirectional (bi-di) coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) SFP hot-pluggable transceivers.

This new transceiver supports SONET OC-48, 2G Fibre Channel, 2.4G Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), and Gigabit Ethernet. For CPRI applications, the bi-di transceiver can support an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.

Feature

Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
