1550 nm 10G SFP+ Tunable Single Mode Optical Transceiver

The BW10 transceivers are enhanced SFP transceivers with small form factors designed for use in multi-rate links up to 5 km.



Bandwidth10’s 1550 nm  SFP+ tunable transceiver is an advantageous solution for various tunable dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) applications. The transceiver can be used in several environments as for example fiber based optical access, mobile front- and backhaul as well as in data center and metropolitan fiber optic applications.

The Bandwidth10 transceiver offer a wide tuning range and are available in different temperature grades. (the mentioned temperature ranges are indeed two, C-Temp and I-Temp). The commercial version supports a temperature range from 0-70°C while the industrial version covers a temperature range from -40°C up to +85°C. The transceivers are available for different frequency bands and data rates up to 10 Gbps.
