ProLabs has launched its latest SFP+ 10G DWDM narrowband 9 channel tunable 40 km fiber transceivers, reducing the cost and complexity of transceiver inventory requirements in data centers and enterprise networks.
Network operators can tune these 10G DWDM 40 km optics using the ProTune™ Coding and Tuning System or in-field autonomously. This reduces the need for 40 discrete part numbers and fixed wavelength specifications down to only 5 different 10G DWDM tunable transceivers.
"The flexibility offered by a tunable 10G DWDM transceiver addresses many operational challenges," said Ray Hagen, Global Product Line Manager at ProLabs. "A 10G tunable in the access network reduces sparing and inventory complexities, allowing for greater quantities of fewer parts on hand. This simplification of parts allows fix agents to fit as needed into any network segment and wavelength, improving performance in mean-time-to-repair."
The product contains five tunable optics with the capability to tune to channels 20-28, 28-36, 36-44, 45-52, or 52-60, covering from 1561.42nm to 1531.12nm.
ProLabs' cost-effective 10G tunable fiber connectivity transceivers are interoperable in environments with systems from Cisco, Juniper, ADVA, Nokia, and more, improving capital expenditures for site managers.
