Designed to relieve networking headaches, the PL-XPL-IC-VB3 logs on as the industry’s first transceiver to support 622, 155, and 125 Mb/s interconnects for short, intermediate, and long reaches. The small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver integrates digital diagnostics and consumes 400 mW, reportedly half the power of comparable intermediate-reach transceivers. It operates over link distances from 0 to 50 km and comes in a robust housing with a convenient bail latch. Additionally, it employs the company's 1,310 nm oxide-VCSEL technology, said to yield efficient optical performance, low-jitter, and low-electromagnetic emission. According to the company, the transceiver's launch power cannot overload receivers, and link distances of 42 km and 50 km are achieved at OC-12 and OC-3 rates, respectively.
