Combining software selectable data rates and Small
Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, the Fiber DriverT SFP
Multi-Rate Dual Transponder (EM316DMR48) from MRV Communications defines a new
level of deployment flexibility and inventory management, enabling the
implementation of an extremely wide range of optical infrastructure solutions
from media conversion and distance extension to lambda conversion, Wave Division
Multiplexing (WDM) and Optical Add/Drop Multiplexing (OADM).
Installation of the SFP Multi-Rate Dual Transponder is quick and easy.
Simply place the module into the Fiber Driver chassis, insert the SFP
transceivers and set the module to the corresponding data rate. Changing the
connection type at a later point requires only changing the SFP transceivers and
setting the module to the new data rate. With the hot swappable functionality of
the SFP transceivers there is virtually no down time involved.
Driver SFP Multi-Rate Dual Transponder performs full 3R signal regeneration -
retransmission, reshaping, and retiming - per channel at any selected data rate
from 100 Mbps to 2.7 Gbps (100 MHz to 2.7 GHz). This range covers Fast and
Gigabit Ethernet, FDDI, ESCON, SONET (OC-3, OC-12, OC-48 and OC-48 with FEC),
Fibre Channel (1 Gbps & 2 Gbps), Serial Digital Video Interface (SDI)
SMPTPE-269 and SMTPE-292, DVB, HDTV (1.5 Gbps), and many other protocols. Even
customer proprietary optical protocols can be supported for the ultimate in
value added services. If desired, the clock and data recovery functions can be
bypassed to create a 2R protocol transparent connection.
Multi-Rate Dual Transponder fully supports the SFP standard including digital
diagnostics as per SFF-8472. Together with the Network Management Module it
provides real-time access to information such as transceiver type (protocol,
range, vendor, etc.), transceiver temperature, TX/RX optical power, and
transceiver supply voltage. It also provides a means for generating management
alerts and warnings, when system parameters fall outside of the normal operating
