WEST HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Source Photonics is pleased to announce the addition of extreme temperature-hardened products to the 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 90C 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 90C LR-Lite SFP+ product is based on 10G laser chips developed and manufactured in Source Photonics’ own InP foundry; it has successfully completed all Telcordia GR-468 requirements for 90C operation, and is available for volume orders. The extreme temperature SFP+ builds on Source Photonics’ market and innovation leadership established with first-to-market release of the 6G 2-km 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 products support a wide range of wireless network architecture options. The 90C SFP+ is the newest addition to this portfolio improving tower infrastructure return on investment in addition to network architecture alternatives.
