Effdon to present world-first 80km single-fiber 100G CFP module

ANAHEIM, California -- Effdon Networks to present world-first single fiber 100G 80km Reach-Extender pluggable module at the OFC 2013 exhibition, booth 1111. The industry has been looking for a long time for a technology that can economically span 100Gbps for a range of 80km over a single fiber pair. Effdon is the first company to answer this demand, with a compact pluggable CFP module. With the new solution, Operators, Data Centers and Enterprises can extend the reach of their existing 100G Router/Switch ports from 100m/10km to 80km without the need to install and manage external expensive and power hungry DWDM systems, slashing the Total Cost of Ownership for delivering 100G services by an order of magnitude, while saving space and power. Effdon CFP optical performance is comparable to 10G design rules, thus bringing the 100G technology to the level of 10G transmission for seamless upgrade of existing 10G networks. Eitan Efron, CEO and cofounder of Effdon: "To make 100G technology widely deployable it has to be at least comparable to today's 10 x 10G solutions in price, power and density. But not less important, it must be backward compatible to the 10G networks and services out there in the field. There are millions of 80km 10G ports out there that customers look to upgrade to 100G but until today they had no practical way to do that without a track role. Today you plug in a single-fiber 10G module on your router or switch and get a direct router-router service over 80km. Why should it be any different with 100G?" Effdon's sophisticated smart optics technology, developed over the last three years, takes a complete DWDM system and shrinks it into a compact 100G module. Effdon's technology enables a simple upgrade path from today's 10G to 100G. Efron: "Simply add a 100G pluggable module to your router or switch and get a 100G of service, over 80km, over a single fiber. No other external devices needed. No need to be an optical expert or manage complex WDM systems. The Effdon module does it all for you. It is Simple, Fast, Highly cost effective for network operation - just as you have today in the 10G world". For more information:
