Champion ONE Launches New CFP4 Optical Transceivers

New 100G Pluggable Module Doubles Port Density while Reducing Power Consumption for Both Single Mode and Multi-mode Applications

BEACHWOOD, Ohio – October 6, 2015 – Champion ONE, a leading supplier of compatible optical transceivers, today announced the general availability of its new 100G CFP4 hot-pluggable transceivers. This next-generation transceiver joins Champion ONE’s successful Passport™ portfolio of 100G products, including CFP, CFP2 and CXP optics.

CFP4 transceivers provide users the same data rate as CFPs and CFP2s, but with drastically reduced power consumption (6W maximum). In addition, at roughly half the size of a CFP2, these transceivers enable users to double their port-density. All of these attributes make these CFP4 optics ideal for telecom applications.

“Networks are rapidly evolving to achieve higher bandwidth and demand for 100G is accelerating among our leading service provider and enterprise customers,” says John Jutila, CEO of Champion ONE. “Staying at the leading edge of innovation is an integral part of delivering the value our customers expect when they entrust the future of their networks to us.”

These CFP4s are offered in four configurations:

• Single-Rate SR4. Supports 100Gbase-SR4 Ethernet. Covers distances of 70m (on OM3 fiber) and 100m (on OM4 fiber). Maximum power consumption is 4W.

• Multi-Rate SR4.. Supports 100Gbase-SR4 Ethernet and 4x28Gb/s OTN applications. Covers distances of 100m (on OM3 fiber) and 150m (on OM4 fiber). Maximum power consumption is 4W.• Single-Rate LR4. Supports 100Gbase-LR4 Ethernet. Covers distances of 10km. Maximum power consumption is 6W.

• Multi-Rate LR4. Supports 100Gbase-LR4 Ethernet and OTN OTU4 4I1-9D1F applications. Covers distances of 10km. Maximum power consumption is 6W.

Champion ONE’s new CFP4 transceivers are MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) compliant. These transceivers serve as a direct replacement for hot pluggable OEM transceivers and carry an industry leading 5-year warranty.
