10Gb/s Tuneable DWDM SFP+ 80km Transceiver

Product Selection

The Cloudtron 10 Gb/s SFP+ tuneable transceiver is an integrated fibre optic transceiver that  provides a high-speed serial link at signalling rates from up to 11.3 Gb/s. The module complies with  the 10 Gigabit Enhanced Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP+) multisource agreement-MSA (SFF-8431)  and SFF-8432, SFF-8690 and SFF-8472. It complies with the ITU-T G.698.1 standard with 50 GHz  channel spacing for SONET/SDH, IEEE DWDM 10GBASE-ZR for 80 km reach (Ethernet), and DWDM  10GFC for 80 km reach (Fibre Channel) applications. 

The transceiver integrates the receiver and transmitter path on one module. The transceiver contains a C-band-tuneable integrated Mach-Zehnder (MZ) laser, enabling data transmission over single-mode fibre through an industry-standard LC connector. On the receiver side, the 10 Gbps data  stream is recovered from an APD/ trans-impedance amplifier, and passed to an output driver. This module features a hot-pluggable electrical interface.
