Source Photonics, Inc. Announces Low Power Consumption GPON SFP ONU and EPON SFP ONU with DPoE OAM

Source Photonics, Inc. announced two new SFP ONUs with embedded MAC for applications in GPON OAM and DOCSIS provisioning of EPON (DPoE). The 1.25Gbps bi-directional EPON ONU with MAC is part of the DPoE architecture developed for upgrading a CATV point-to-point system to EPON using existing DOCSIS-based back office systems and processes. The ONU is in MSA compliant SFP form-factor and is designed to simply plug into a standard SFP port in the customer premises equipment (CPE). The product offers "plug-and-play" capability via the auto discovery and configuration feature for ease of use. The ONU also features multiple functions including VLAN support, ONU Certification, IGMP Snooping, Traffic Management, Clock Synchronization, Rogue ONU detection and Dying Gasp indication. The transceiver is fully compliant with IEEE 802.3ah standards and supports DPoE v1.0 OAM for CMTS platform applications, as well as optional GE/FE SerDes UNI and SGMII UNI. The GPON ONU with MAC integrates GPON OMCI Stack and is fully compliant with ITU-T G.984 standards. The GPON SFP-ONU product offers the same expanded feature set as the EPON product, and allows interconnection of a standard Ethernet SFP port to a PON network, in a broad range of network applications including wireless backhaul and FTTx.

Source Photonics, Inc. Demonstrates Low Power Consumption Second Generation 100GBASE-LR4 CFP Multi-rate Transceiver at OFC

Source Photonics, Inc. announced the live demonstration of the low power consumption 100GBASE-LR4 CFP transceiver module, the CPL-A4-MR-LR-CLFB, at OFC 2013. The 100G transceiver is designed to meet the growing market of high data rate applications in datacenter and telecom systems and features the following technical characteristics: multi-rate support for 100GbE and OTU4 (802.3ba and ITU G.959.1) up to 111.8 Gb/S; low maximum power consumption of 14 W (multi-rate) and 12W (Ethernet only) respectively; fully MSA compliant with high-speed CAUI electrical interface; CFP package with straight or angled duplex-LC connector option; MDIO interface with Digital Diagnostic Monitoring. The second Gen 100G LR4 CFP module is the latest addition to the high data rate transceiver portfolio of Source Photonics and will go into production in the first half of 2013. Especially the low power consumption of under 14W (12 W for Ethernet only applications) makes it attractive for high density applications were power dissipation is critical. Next to the 100G modules, the high data rate portfolio covers 40G modules in CFP and QSFP+ form factor meeting the IEEE standard for SR4, LR4 and FR (40G serial) as well as for the proposed ER4 standard for applications that span 40 km.
