X2 Duplex Optical Transceiver
X2 Duplex Optical Transceiver
3C-LINK X2 Transceiver is a highly integrated, serial optical transponder module for high-speed, 10Gbit/s data transmission applications. The module is fully compliant to IEEE 802.3ae standard for Ethernet, making it ideally suited for 10GbE datacom (rack to-rack, client interconnection) applications.

3C-LINK´s X2 is a standardized form factor for 10 Gb/s fiber optic transponders that is used for data transfer rates from 10.3 Gb/s to 10.5 Gb/s. It is protocol-specific: Either 10G Ethernet or 10G Fibre Channel versions are available. X2 transponders are used in datacom optical links only (not telecom), and they are smaller than old generation XENPAK transponders. Its electrical interface to the host board is also standardized and is called XAUI (4 x 3.125 Gb/s). 3C-LINK manufactures X2 300m, X2 10km, X2 20km, X2 40km, X2 80km optical modules. All modules support Digital Optical Monitoring (DOM) function . 3C-LINK offers the whole series of 10G X2, including: X2 10GBASE-SR 300M MMF OM3; X2 10GBASE-LRM MMF 220M; X2 10GBASE-LR SMF 10-20KM; X2 10GBASE-ER SMF 40KM; X2 10GBASE-ZR SMF 80KM; 40 Channels DWDM X2.
