40G QSFP+ Bidi (BiDirectional) Optical Transceiver
Optech is proud to announce that the 40G QSFP+ BiDi Optical Transceiver is now availabale !
It is a cost effective and high quality solutions to upgrade an existing 10G network to a 40G network.
Features of the 40G QSFP+ BiDi
The 40GBase QSFP+ Bidi has two 20G channels that supports connections up to 100 meters on OM3 and up to 150 meters on OM4. It uses LC Duplex connector and the wavelength is 850nm. It is compliant with the QSFP MSA.
- Supports 40G data rate
- 2 channels 850nm VCSEL transmitter
- Reach distance up to 100 meters with OM3
- Reach distance up to 150 meters with OM4
- LC Duplex Connector
- Temparature range: 0 to 70°C
Difference between the 40G QSFP+ BiDi and the 40G QSFP+ SR
Both, the 40G QSFP+ BiDi and the 40G QSFP+ SR reach distances up to 150 meters over multi-mode fiber. The difference is that the QSFP+ BiDi uses LC connector and the QSFP+ SR uses MPO connector. Knowing that all the 10G transceivers use LC connector, it can make a difference when deciding to upgrade a network from 10G to 40G. Indeed, the LC connector of the 40G QSFP+ BiDi allows to reuse the existing cables of a 10G network.
