Oclaro Delivers Second Gen Tunable SFP+ Module

Building on its history of 10G tunable DWDM products, Oclaro has begun sampling its second-generation tunable SFP+ module.  The new units operate at very high temperatures of up to 85 degrees Celsius with very low power consumption, making them suitable for next generation data center, metro and regional optical networks. It also serves as a building block for emerging new applications such as fiber-to-the-home and 4G/5G LTE wireless fronthaul networks that might require DWDM functionality in the future.

Key features of the tunable SFP+ module include:

  • Operates below 1.5W throughout 0-70 degrees Celsius w/o CDR
  • Supports extended temperature up to 85 degrees Celsius with maximum 1.8W power consumption
  • Supports high Tx power (up to +1.2dBm)
  • Supports SONET/SDH applications with CDR version
  • The broad tunable SFP+ portfolio also includes zero chirp, L-band, and PIN ROSA variants
  • Multi-rate operation: 9.95 Gbit/s to 11.3 Gbit/s
  • Tunable across the full C-band with 96 channels on the ITU-T 50GHz grid
