OCP Introduces 1.3 micron VCSEL-Based GigE Transceivers

Optical Communication Products introduced its Gigabit Ethernet extended reach (XR) pluggable transceivers. The 1.3 micron VCSEL-based product line increases the effective transmission distance of a Gigabit Ethernet link over legacy multimode fiber (MMF) to 2,000m. It is available in SFP and GBIC form factors.

The XR product family utilizes a 1.3 micron VCSEL as its laser source with an optical link budget of 8.5dB to achieve the 2km transmission distance over legacy multimode fiber.
