Avago announces availability of 40G BiDi QSFP+ transceiver

Avago Technologies’ 40G bidirectional (BiDi) multimode fibre QSFP+ transceiver module, the AFBR-79EBPZ, is designed for high-speed data centre interconnect and networking applications. Based on 2x20G BiDi optics, the module provides an upgrade path to 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) by enabling 40G transmission over installed LC duplex multimode fibre previously running at 10G. The new transceiver operates over two fibres with an LC connector as opposed to eight fibres with the MPO connector used by conventional 40G QSFP+ optical modules.

‘Our 40G BiDi transceiver technology is an important breakthrough that has facilitated many of our end customers to transition from 10G to 40G

Biarri Networks offers FTTx network design as a service

Australian company Biarri Networks is introducing fibre-to-the-x network design as a service under the brand Biarri Networks QED, which denotes ‘quality elegant designs’. The new offering combines the company’s Fibre Optic Network Design (FOND) software with Biarri’s team of network planners – enabling customers to create complex FTTx network designs more quickly and at lower cost than ever before.

Biarri Networks says it can deliver detailed fibre network designs at a rate of more than 50,000

MACOM targets GPON with ultra-high-sensitivity TIA

network to meet the ever increasing demand for bandwidth. With the general availability of Avago 40G BiDi MMF QSFP+ transceiver, there will be an accelerated market adoption of 40G Ethernet for data centres,’ said Philip Gadd, senior vice president and general manager of the fibre optics product division at Avago. Avago is accepting orders now.

premises per day, or 350,000 per week, at one tenth of the cost of alternatives. ‘The number of premises that we are designing at this velocity and quality has never been seen before in the industry,’ claimed Paul Sulisz, general manager for Biarri Networks QED. FOND is Biarri’s custom-built software, which generates an optimised fibre network design, taking into consideration all the necessary information for a specific FTTx project, such as existing infrastructure, material costs and regulation. Outputs, including bill of materials or quantities and splicing matrix, can be customised to suit the individual project.

Semiconductor supplier M/A-COM Technology Solutions has unveiled the new M02027 next-generation high-performance transimpedance amplifier (TIA) designed for GPON optical network unit (ONU) equipment. MACOM’s M02027 enables GPON

receivers to use lower-cost PIN photodiodes while offering performance margin in the demanding GPON BOSA-on-board environment. The devices has been designed to suit GPON ONU, SONET, CPRI base station and SFF/SFP module applications, and supports multi-data rates between 100Mb/s and 3.125Gb/s from a single 3.3V power supply.

‘The new GPON ONU TIA offers superior optical sensitivity and overload performance with low-cost PIN photodiode at best-in-class power dissipation,’ said Angus Lai, director of product marketing, high-performance analog at MACOM. ‘We believe the M02027 offers a competitive cost-performance ratio and enables our customers to tackle fast growing GPON deployments.’ In mass production now, the M02027 available as bare die in waffle pack and wafer on grip frame.
