The Nevion Flashlink 10G-TR is a 10Gbps optical transponder designed for CWDM and DWDM wavelength conversion applications.
The transponder is designed for supporting 10G Ethernet, 10G Sonet/SDH as well as 10G fiber channel. The modular design with the ability to quickly replace a whole unit with its optical modules attached makes the 10G-TR the first choice for mission critical applications.
The transponder is utilizing for its optical conversion XFP transceivers that are pluggable devices that enable easy exchange or upgrade of optical ports. XFPs are available with standard 1310nm, 18 channels of CWDM and 40 channels of DWDM optical transmitters and medium haul and long haul optical receivers.
A typical application converts the optical outputs from 10GbE switches to CWDM or DWDM wavelengths, enabling transport over a Flashlink CWDM/DWDM network.
Another application – distance expanding – enables short haul output of a switch to convert to long haul output.
