SFP+ Transceivers

SFP+ Transceivers

OptoSpan Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) modules, designed for Enterprise and data center applications, offer customers a range of 10G Ethernet and 8 or 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel applications. Short range, Multimode Fiber (MMF) modules are ideal for high speed optical links within the data center. Long Range Single-mode fiber (SMF) SFP+ Transceivers are ideal for providing high speed connectivity to Metro Area – and Inter Campus Networks.

SFP+ Transceiver Series

OptoSpan offers two lines of SFP+ transceiver modules for different compatibility:
Standard series transceivers are compatible for use with brands such as Finisar, Avago, JDSU, and other generic brands, and Platinum OEM Series transceivers are designed for specific compatibility requirements such as Cisco, Brocade, Juniper, Alcatel, HP, Nortel, EMC, QLogic, and other OEM networks.

SFP+ Technical Features

All OptoSpan long-reach SFP+ Transceivers are ROHS compliant, allow for real-time diagnostic monitoring as per SFF-8742 and designed to meet Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) standards for Duplex transceivers with LC interface.

SFP+ Transceiver Types

SFP+ transceiver modules are available for use with standard Duplex, Single Fiber Bidirectional (BiDi), Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM).

SFP+ Transceivers

10G/8G SFP+ Transceivers

10G/8G duplex optical SFP+ Transceiver modules communicate over regular duplex fiber and are multi-purpose optical modules for 10Gbit/s data transmission applications at 850nm, 1310nm and 1550nm. Designed for Telecom (SONET/SDH), Datacom and Storage Area Networks.

BiDi SFP Transceivers

Single Fiber Bidirectional (BiDi) SFP+ Transceivers

OptoSpan Single Fiber BiDirectional (BiDi) SFP+ transceivers use simplex single-mode fiber to double the bandwidth without the cost. These hot-swappable single fiber transceivers provide data rates of 10G and distance up to 160 kilometers. Designed for bi-directional 10G serial optical data communications such as IEEE 802.3ae and 10GBASE-BX.

SFP+ Transceivers

CWDM SFP+ Transceivers

The OptoSpan CWDM SFP+ transceivers are a small form factor pluggables communicating over single mode fiber (SMF) and are available in 18 center wavelengths ranging from 1270 nm to 1610 nm, with a 20 nm step. A minimum optical link budget of 14 dB is guaranteed and is class 1 laser compliant according to International Safety Standard IEC-60825.

SFP+ Transceivers

DWDM SFP+ Transceivers

The OptoSpan DWDM SFP+ is specifically designed for carrier and large enterprise networks that require scalable, flexible and cost-effective system for multiplexing, transporting and protecting data in point-to-point, add/drop, ring, mesh and star network topologies. These modules are designed for single mode fiber and operates at a nominal wavelength of 100GHz or 500GHz ITU Grid, C Band DWDM wavelength.
