MergeOptics GmbH, a supplier of highly integrated, low-power fiber optic components and subsystems, recently announced the availability of its X2 SR and X2 ER products.

The X2 range includes the SR, ER, LR and lx4 modules. The X2 SR module is for links up to 300m in new multi-mode fiber (MMF), the LR for 10km links in single-mode fiber (SMF), the ER for 40km links, and the LX4 for 300m links in legacy MMF and 10km links in SMF.

The initial introduction of the X2 products included the LR version, which has been shipping into customer sites for over a year, and more recently the X2 LX4 version. According to the company, the LX4 is the only proven 10GbE standard that exists for 300m installed legacy MMF, providing the ability to increase data transmission rates from 1GbE to10GbE over the existing fiber infrastructure.

The X2 products are standards based and fully compliant to the IEEE 802.3ae standard for 10GbE. Additionally, MergeOptics products are environmentally responsible and fully compliant with the EU-RoHS requirements.

"MergeOptics is solidly committed to delivering leading edge products to its customers, and will continually strive to maintain the competitive edge by developing quality products that perform to customer standards and requirements," said Dag Neumeuer, President and CEO of MergeOptics. "We have the distinctive advantage of offering customers a wide range of products that meet the demands of the data communications market."

All products belonging to the X2 range are in full production and available for immediate delivery from stock.
