OE Solutions Unveils 25Gbps Transceiver Portfolio for Wireless Fronthaul Networks
By OE Solutions
Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, March 9, 2018 — OE Solutions unveils three new 25Gbps SFP28 transceiver products – the BIDI ER-lite IT, the Duplex ER-lite IT, and the CWDM LR IT – which, together with the existing 25Gbps SFP28 LR product, form a rapidly growing portfolio of high bit rate, industrial-temperature (IT) rated optical transceivers. The breadth of the 25Gbps transceiver portfolio supports a wide range of emerging 5G wireless fronthaul architectures.
Radio equipment manufacturers are rushing to develop and release solutions that allow operators to start delivering 5G services. Already this year, some network operators will offer 5G services, albeit with limited feature sets, in a fierce competition to lead the evolution of the next generation wireless infrastructure. While initial services may be limited in coverage or features, all players are eager to secure their role early. In the coming years additional features will be added to complete a ubiquitous next generation network infrastructure. The number of connected devices and bandwidth consumption will grow by orders of magnitude posing commensurate demands to the optical equipment supporting the radio network.
“OE Solutions has played a key role delivering optical transceivers for past generation wireless networks and we are excited to support the global rollout of also the next generation, 5G, which will revolutionize broadband delivery to end users and kick off the IOT era,” said Per Hansen, VP Marketing & Sales of OE Solutions. “We are pleased to be teaming with leading equipment providers to address the ever-increasing need for bandwidth in the wireless infrastructure while meeting their stringent requirements to physical design and operating conditions.”
The new 25Gbps transceivers joining OE Solutions’ extensive list of IT-rated transceivers for wireless applications are:
- 25Gbps SFP28 1270nm/1310nm BIDI IT for distances up to 30km
- 25Gbps SFP28 1310nm Duplex IT for distances up to 30km
- 25Gbps SFP28 CWDM IT for distances up to 10km
These transceivers will be available as samples in Q2. Volume production will start in Q3 2018.
Visit OE Solutions at OFC, Booth 1923, in San Diego, CA, USA, from March 13 to 15, 2018 to learn more about the new 25G transceiver product portfolio as well as MACsec Smart SFP technology. Demos of both technologies will be shown at the booth.
