Picolight Demos 10GBASE-LRM

Picolight demonstrated 1310 nanometer (nm) vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) transceivers in a 10 gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP+) design for the IEEE 802.3aq serial optical interface standard (10GBASE-LRM). The company said the new transceivers combine extended reach capability, small footprint and low power consumption. enabling extended link applications on legacy multimode fiber applications up to 220 meters in enterprise networks.

Earlier this year, Picolight was the first company to demonstrate 10G 850 and 1310nm VCSEL based SFP+ transceivers at OFC/NFOEC 2006. Since the initial demonstrations in March 2006, Picolight has sampled 8/10G 850nm SFP+ transceivers to more than 12 strategic customers and partners.
