16G 3R Multi-rate Transponder - Dual Channel


16G 3R Multi-rate Transponder
  • FRM220-16G-3R has 4 SFP+ slots that can be configured as a dual channel transponder or in a 1-to-2 port protection mode.
  • The unit provides flexible transmission of various protocols, such as 1G/10G Ethernet, STM16/STM64, OTU1/OTU1e/OTU2/OTU2e, Fibre Channel 1/2/4/8/10/16, ODU, OBSAI, CPRI, etc.
  • Using SFP+ ports with dedicated CWDM or DWDM wavelengths, the 16G transponder supports multi-rate functionality with optical data rates from 1Gbps up to 16Gbps.
  • With its functionality the FRM220-16G-3R transponder is also suitable as a repeater for transmission over extended distances.
  • In addition, the use of state of the art components greatly reduces the power requirements and heat dissipation factors over previous transponders.
  • Multi-rate supports 1Gbps ~ 16Gbps
  • Protocol Transparent 3R fibre Media Transponder / Repeater
  • Can operate in an unmanaged environment - configuration via on board DIP switch
  • Can operate in a managed environment (HTTP, SNMP) when used alongside companion NMC card
  • Supports 1+1 Optical Line Protection, switching time <50ms
  • Supports 2 channels with different bit rates
