OE Solutions and AimValley Announce 1G10G Rate Adaptation Smart SFP

By OE Solutions

Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, March 21st, 2024  — AimValley and OE Solutions, announce today the addition of a new 1G10G Rate Adaptation Smart SFPTM Pluggable Device to its extensive line of Smart SFP devices.

Support Legacy 1 GbE on your brand new switch!

The 1G10G Rate Adaptation SFPTM provides a solution for customers that need an optical 1G interface for newer generation routers and switching systems which only support SFP cages with interface rates such as 10/25/100/400G.

Internally the 1G10G Rate Adaptation Smart SFPTM uses a 1G to 10G bridge function processor to convert the 1GbE optical signal into a 10GbE data rate to the host system and vice-versa. This bridge function is fully transparent for all frames, including jumbo frames.

Furthermore, it facilitates bi-directional Synchronous Ethernet to sustain network-wide frequency synchronization among devices. The 1G10G Rate Adaptation Smart SFPTM is ideal for high-end systems (10G and up) that require connection to installed systems that only support 1 GbE interfaces, such as:

  • Management interfaces
  • Timing interfaces
  • Legacy 1G Ethernet equipment

“Having a 1G to 10G bridge function in a Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) will give more deployment flexibility, delivering lower rack-space use, lower power & carbon footprint and an overall cost saving”. Senior Network Planner – Tier 1 Network Equipment Manufacturer

Smart SFP Devices

OE Solutions and AimValley jointly conceived the Smart SFP idea and started to build a comprehensive and feature-rich Smart SFP portfolio. The idea was built upon the strengths of both companies, by joining transceiver technology with systems and network technology.

Smart SFPs are deployed in networks for major 5G mobile operators, and communications service providers, as well as mission-critical networks for Utility, Transport, Oil & Gas, Government, and Energy.

You typically find Smart SFPs in equipment like:

  • Ethernet and IP/MPLS switches and access and cell site routers
  • Ethernet and IP/MPLS microwave radio systems
  • xWDM systems
  • Packet/optical systems

The complete portfolio is available as a Plug & Play solution.

Using the Smart SFP technology, customer-specific options can be provided.

The Smart SFP portfolio

  • T1 1.5 Mb/s, E1 2.0 Mb/s, T3 45 Mb/s
  • SONET/SDH OC-3/STM-1, 155 Mb/s
  • SONET/SDH OC-12/STM-4, 622 Mb/s
  • SONET/SDH OC-48/STM-16, 2.5 Gb/s
  • Packet over TDM (2.5G over OC-48/STM-16)

Smart SFP Applications

  • 5G mobile fronthaul networks
  • Fixed-line networks
  • Packet-based microwave radio for 5G mobile fronthaul networks
  • Mission-critical networks
