About the Product

PBN’s 10 Gbps CWDM SFP+ transceivers are designed for long-haul operations up to 80 km in a CWDM environment. The transceiver features an APD diode and a temperature-stabilized DFB-EML transmitter for highest reliability.

In environments where multiple services share a single fiber, up to eight CWDM wavelengths can be used to accomplish up to 40 Gbps symmetrical Ethernet services or alternatively analog CATV on specific wavelengths.

Digital diagnostics functions are available through an I2C bus based on the popular SFP MSA to achieve highest vendor compatibility.
