Integra Optics, an Infinite Electronics brand, has announced its latest innovation, the XGS-PON and GPON combo OLT SFP+ BiDi optical transceiver module.

By integrating the functionality of XG(S) PON OLT and GPON OLT optical modules, the transceiver module facilitates seamless network rate deployment within Optical Distribution Networks (ODNs) based on Optical Network Unit (ONU) requirements.

The transceiver module enables a smooth transition from GPON to XG/XGS-PON, effectively future-proofing network infrastructures against evolving demands without necessitating infrastructure overhaul. A standout feature is its ability to support up to 20 km reach over single-mode fiber (SMF) at 10/2.5 G and 10/10 Gbps data rates, ensuring robust and efficient long-distance connectivity. It adheres to the SFP+ MSA and is compliant with GPON/XGS-PON standards, showcasing its versatility and readiness for diverse network environments.

The product accommodates a wide range of operational conditions, offering both industrial operating temperature (-40° to +85° C) and commercial temperature (0° to +70° C) versions, making it suitable for various deployment scenarios.

A key advantage of the XGS-PON and GPON Combo OLT SFP+ transceiver module is the elimination of the need for external wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) equipment, simplifying network architectures and significantly reducing both construction and maintenance costs.

Furthermore, the module features a Digital Diagnostic Monitoring (DDM) interface as per the QSFP28 Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), enhancing network reliability through real-time monitoring and diagnostics.

“The integration of GPON and XGS-PON functionalities into a single optical module not only signifies a leap in technology but exemplifies our commitment to innovation and understanding the needs of the telecommunications sector,” said Senior Engineering Manager Marlena Miller. “This module is designed to solve real-world networking challenges, offering unparalleled distance coverage, compliance with industry standards, temperature versatility and a simplified network design.”

The new XGS-PON and GPON combo OLT SFP+ BiDi optical transceiver module is available and ready for immediate use.
