The Skylane SFP+ Tunable DWDM is a high performance C-band transceiver that enables user to set the channel in 50Ghz spacing.
This optical transceiver can operate in the range of 9.95Gps to 11.3Gbps data links over a single mode fiber with a maximum reach of 80km and end of life power budget of 21.5dB without dispersion compensation. This module is designed with a cooled C-band tunable transmitter (ILMZ ) and an APD receiver.
This product was tested in accordance with Telcordia GR-468 and complies to SFP+ MSA specification SFF-8431 Rev. 4.1 for the electrical interface, SFF-8690 Rev. 1.4 for the tunability interface, and SFF-8472 Rev. 11.3 for the management interface.
Tunable transceivers are very useful in case of emergency because the module can be tuned to the desired channel. Additional advantage is the reduction in total amount of “spare-optics” to hold in stock for DWDM C-band systems.
