Champion ONE Launches Bi-Directional Single Fiber Optical Transceiver

  • Champion ONE
BEACHWOOD, OH – Champion ONE, a third-party optical transceiver company, announced the launch of its new X2 40km Bi-Directional (BiDi) optical transceiver. The introduction of this pluggable X2 technology enables service providers, healthcare institutions, universities, and enterprises to better optimize their fiber network while extending the life of existing network equipment.

By enabling the transmission of a full 10 Gbps duplex signal over a single strand of optical fiber, operators can effectively double their fiber plant instantly as well as halve fiber leasing costs. This new X2 solution generates savings by limiting the installation of new fiber or reducing the number of strands in a lease, which translates to tens of thousands in per annum savings. Utilizing single fiber optics also saves money by providing an alternative to implementing an expensive active CWDM or DWDM system.

Previously, operators would have had to upgrade their line cards to accommodate SFP+ or XFP ports to enable the use of 10Gbps Single Fiber Bi-Directional optics. Operators can now benefit by taking advantage of existing X2 ports in their Cisco Catalyst, Nexus, and other Cisco 4xxx, 5xxx, 6xxx, and 7xxx series switches and routers to deliver more services to their users, thus extending the life of their existing network switches and routers.

Duplex Communication Over a Single Fiber Strand
Champion ONE’s new 10GBASE-ER X2 (LC Connector) single fiber transceivers are rated at 40km and utilize 1330nm Tx/1270 Rx and 1270nm Tx/1330 Rx wavelengths to generate full duplex communication over a single fiber strand. Champion ONE has also color coded the latches for the east and west side optics to simplify the “book-ending” implementation process. These new X2 transceivers are fully MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) and IEEE Ethernet compliant.

By integrating existing SFP+ components into an X2 form factor, Champion ONE has created an cost-effective solution for end-users. These transceivers also come standard with DOM (Digital Optical Monitoring) or DD (Digital Diagnostics). This allows users to monitor parameters such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage, in real time. They are extremely well suited for datacom and telecom [Ethernet] applications, where fiber is in short supply.
