At OFC 2014 in San Francisco, optical transceiver specialist Champion ONE introduced its new bi-directional (bidi), or single-fiber, 60km 10G SFP+ and XFP transceivers.

The company claims the new hot pluggable technology will enable service providers, healthcare institutions, universities and enterprises to better optimize their networks by virtually doubling their fiber plant and extending the life of their network, without the expense of running new fiber.

By enabling the transmission of a full 10 Gbps duplex signal over a single strand of optical fiber, the company contends that operators can effectively double their fiber plant instantly, while cutting fiber leasing costs by half. Utilizing single fiber optics also saves money by providing an alternative to implementing an expensive active CWDM or DWDM systems, contends Champion ONE.

Champion ONE’s new 60km single fiber transceivers are MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) compliant. The new transceivers serve as a direct replacement for hot-pluggable OEM transceivers.

“As bandwidth demand increases, network expansion investments are being made to support higher levels of customer traffic," comments John Jutila's, Champion ONE's CEO. "Our innovative 60km 10G SFP+ and XFP single fiber transceivers will help reduce fiber installation or lease costs while improving network capacity and ROI by enabling providers to serve more customers with fewer optical fibers.”
