Champion ONE Launches New Copper SFP+ Transceiver

New 10G Pluggable Module Protects Investment In Legacy Infrastructure

BEACHWOOD, Ohio – July 13, 2016 — Champion ONE, a leading supplier of open standards based compatible transceivers, today announced the general availability of its new 10G Copper SFP+ hot-pluggable transceivers. This transceiver joins Champion ONE’s successful Passport™ portfolio of universally compatible transceivers.

Champion ONE’s line of 100G QSFP28 transceivers is among the most robust in the industry. It includes:

This new transceiver supports 10GBase-T Ethernet up to 30m over Category 6a/7 cables or 100/1000Base-T Ethernet over Category 5e cables.

The copper SFP+ bridges the gap in the market between 7m direct-attach cables (DACs) and short-haul 10GBASE-SR SFP+ optics. They are ideally suited for data center applications, where 10G copper spans exceeding 10m are becoming more prevalent. This is particularly evident in TOR-to-Core (leaf-to-spine) links.

“As Champion ONE’s data center customers migrate from 3-tier to 2-tier network architectures to accommodate increasing bandwidth demands, they require longer reaches in connectivity,” said John Jutila, CEO of Champion ONE. “Products like our new 10G Copper SFP+ transceivers enable customers to slash new capital expenditures through the use of open standards, while also protecting their existing infrastructure investments by ensuring full compatibility.”

Champion ONE’s new copper SFP+ 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.
