10 Gbps XFP transponder module with 3R

10 Gbps XFP transponder module with 3R

Brocade QLogic

This SPEED-SINGLELINE Compact optical 10 Gbps module with 3R functionality is a cost-saving conversion module for high-speed 10G signals. The module supports two flexible XFP ports suitable for wavelength conversion (850 nm, 1310 nm, 1550 nm, CWDM/DWDM or tunable optics) while the optical power budget (up to 24 dB/approx. 80 km distance) and the transferring application (10 GbE, 10 GFC, STM-64) are individually defined. The SPEED-SINGLELINE XFP can be used for existing 10 Gigabit systems like 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches to achieve long distances (up to 80 km). Thus existing 10 Gigabit systems are not restricted to installed 10 Gigabit optics which are limited to a few kilometers.

10 Gbps XFP transponder module with 3R

10 Gbps wavelength conversion for DWDM networks

The main field of application is cost-efficient CWDM and DWDM networks. As an intelligent transponder module, the SPEED-SINGLELINE XFP converts a transparent data channel to a corresponding CWDM/DWDM wavelength. The module can also be used as a repeater by utilizing the implement 3R functionality (reamplification, re-shaping, re-timing) for signal processing. Data rates between 9.95 Gbps and 11.32 Gbps are supported. Two types of housings are available for an installation in a 19" shelf. 16 slots are provided by using the SPEED-CARRIER 4.5U while a SPEED-CARRIER 1U supports up to four modules. Both housings can be monitored and configured via the optional management module SPEED-NMS OE.
