Champion ONE Launches New 10G 60km Bi-Directional Single Fiber Optical Transceivers for Ethernet Applications

New Innovation From Champion ONE Enables Extended Range Full Duplex Transmission On A Single Strand of Optical Fiber

SAN FRANCISCO– March 11, 2014 –During OFC 2014, Champion ONE, the leading 3rd party optical transceiver company, introduced its new bi-directional (bidi) or single fiber 60km 10G SFP+ and XFP transceivers. The introduction of this new hot pluggable technology enables service providers, healthcare institutions, universities and enterprises to better optimize their network by virtually doubling their fiber plant and extending the life of their network without the expense of running new fiber.

By enabling the transmission of a full 10Gbps duplex signal over a single strand of optical fiber, operators can effectively double their fiber plant instantly as well as halve fiber leasing costs. Utilizing single fiber optics also saves money by providing an alternative to implementing an expensive active CWDM or DWDM system.

“As bandwidth demand increases, network expansion investments are being made to support higher levels of customer traffic. Our innovative 60km 10G SFP+ and XFP single fiber transceivers will help reduce fiber installation or lease costs while improving network capacity and ROI by enabling providers to serve more customers with fewer optical fibers,” said John Jutila, Champion ONE CEO.

Champion ONE’s new 60km single fiber transceivers are MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) compliant. These transceivers serve as a direct replacement for hot pluggable OEM transceivers.
