FINISAR Corporation has announced the production launch of its industry-leading dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers.
Available from Caelera Pty Ltd , DWDM SFP transceivers enable system vendors to simultaneously accelerate time-to-market and provide an easy-to-use DWDM interface for their customers by offering a pluggable alternative to traditional discrete solutions.
The products are ideally suited for metropolitan access and core network systems.
The transceivers are compatible with the latest DWDM SFP multi-source agreement (MSA), of which Finisar is a founding member.
Offering the lowest power consumption in the industry with a maximum specification of 1W total power, the transceivers enable backwards compatibility in legacy systems previously designed for standard SFP transceivers.
The DWDM SFPs are also fully RoHS (restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances) compliant and lead-free.
The FWLF-1631 is compliant with SONET/SDH specifications from OC-3/STM-1 to OC-48/STM-16, 1/2Gb/s Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet.
The transceiver can be deployed in data links with spans of up to 120k.
