FINISAR, represented in Australia by Caelera Pty Ltd , has introduced a new 4Gb/s coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver for metropolitan area networks (MANs).
The company recently demonstrated the 4Gb/s CWDM SFP at the European Conference and Exposition on Optical Communications (ECOC) held in Glasgow, Scotland.
The 4Gb/s CWDM SFP transceiver is available in eight wavelengths for data links up to 20k.
The transceiver transmits both gigabit Ethernet and 1x/2x/4x fibre channel at temperatures from 0°C to 70°. In addition, the transceiver is RoHS compliant and lead free.
The device includes Finisar's patented digital diagnostics technology for real-time monitoring of transceiver and network operating conditions.
"In the past year Finisar has released a number of new WDM transceivers,” product marketing manager for WDM transceivers at Finisar, Atikem Haile-Mariam. “The new SFP builds on that innovation and expands our market leading transceiver portfolio in both 4Gb/s and CWDM transceivers.
“Equipment manufacturers will use this transceiver to empower their customers' implementation of 4Gb/s disaster recovery and real-time data mirroring solutions."
