Champion ONE Launches New CFP2 Optical Transceivers

New 100G Pluggable Module Doubles Port Density while Reducing Power Consumption for Both Single Mode and Multi-mode Applications

BEACHWOOD, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Champion ONE, the leading supplier of compatible optical transceivers, today announced the general availability of its new 100G CFP2 hot-pluggable transceivers. This next generation transceiver joins Champion ONE’s successful Passport™ portfolio of CFP 100G products.

CFP2 transceivers provide users the same data rate as CFPs at up to a third of the power, reducing overall power consumption. In addition, at half the size of a CFP, these transceivers enable users to double their port-density.

“Our customers look to Champion ONE to provide state-of-the-art solutions at a fair price with a capability for rapid deployment. The CFP2 100G transceiver enables Champion ONE to remain on the front edge of customer needs with a proven ability to scale across new technology adoption cycles,” said John Jutila, Champion ONE CEO. He added, “We are already experiencing rapid growth in 100G demand among major network carriers and expect the trend to continue to broaden across metro and data center applications while driving new requirements.”

These CFP2s are offered in four configurations:

  • Single-Rate SR10. Supports 100Gbase-SR10 Ethernet. Covers distances of 82m (on OM2 fiber) and 300m (on OM3 fiber). Maximum power consumption is 4W.
