By OE Solutions
Fort Lee, New Jersey, September 18, 2009: OE Solutions Co, Ltd.,
a global supplier of high performance optoelectronic transceiver
solutions for wireless and wireline optical communications, announced the introduction of Single-Fiber Bi-directional SFP transceivers,
commonly referred to as BIDI SFP, for 80km reach applications with
OC-48/STM-16 signals and for 120km reach with GbE signals<?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O />
Integrating APD into BIDI SFP package has been a long standing
challenge for SFP manufacturers because of limited space for APD and
the required circuitry. Combining packaging expertise and BIDI SFP
experience, OE Solutions’ engineering team has achieved a major
milestone in packaging APD into BIDI SFP form factor. This family of
BIDI SFP with APD receiver enables the support of longer reach applications
for Metro-WDM market. BIDI SFP’s have been mainly used in access market but
this breakthrough will enable customers to take advantage of the BIDI’s
inherent single fiber solution for Metro market.
In order to meet diverse customer requirements, OE Solutions’ BIDI SFP with
APD is available for both GbE and OC-48/STM-16 signals; 120km reach for GbE
and 80km reach for OC-48/STM-16. Wavelengths options are available for both
TDM and CWDM applications. In addition, as do most of OE Solutions’
transceivers, this new product line also satisfies industrial temperature
requirement, i.e. -40 ~ 85 degC.
“We are excited with this new BIDI SFP solution which enables the use of
single-fiber solution in metro applications, ” said John Kwak, Director of
Business Development at OE Solutions. “Bi-directional single-fiber solutions
are currently considered one of the most practical cost-effective solutions
for easier fiber management and cost savings. This will pave the way for
further penetration of BIDI SFP transceivers in both Access and Metro
OE Solutions will exhibit in booth #296 at the ECOC 2009, September 21-23,
2009, at the Austria Center, Vienna, Austria.
