Source Photonics adds extreme-temperature-hardened SFP+ transceivers for wireless infrastructure

At the Optical Fiber Conference conference & exposition (OFC 2015) in Los Angeles (24-26 March), optical communication product maker Source Photonics Inc of West Hills, CA, USA has announced the addition of extreme-temperature-hardened products to its portfolio of CPRI SFP+ transceivers for antenna front-haul in wireless infrastructure deployments.

The new 10G LR-Lite SFP+ modules will operate to full spec compliance up to a case temperature of 90°C with standards-compliant power dissipation. The extended temperature range facilitates deployment of more compact and efficient remote radio units (RRU), enabling higher density and more efficient use of infrastructure and tower investment.

The new 90°C LR-Lite SFP+ product is based on 10G laser chips developed and manufactured in Source Photonics' own indium phosphide (InP) foundry. It has completed all Telcordia GR-468 requirements for 90°C operation, and is available for volume orders.

The extreme-temperature SFP+ builds on Source Photonics' first-to-market release of the 6G 2km SFP+ used in 3G networks and the 10G LR-Lite deployed widely in LTE networks globally.

With a broad portfolio of temperature-hardened interfaces covering CPRI data rates from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s in single- and dual-fiber versions, as well as key WDM interfaces for deployments where fiber economy is critical, Source Photonics says that its products support a wide range of wireless network architecture options. The 90°C SFP+ is the newest addition to this portfolio, improving tower infrastructure return on investment in addition to network architecture alternatives, says the firm.
