Optelian has announced the availability of the RGN-8010 8-port transponder/regenerator card for the LightGAIN optical networking system. According to the company, the RGN-8010 is used to extend optical network system reach and for wavelength conversion in CWDM and DWDM applications.

This low-latency card offers several key new features to enhance the LightGAIN optical networking system. It supports up to eight SFP or SFP+ ports in a 1-wide card, doubling the existing port count to save shelf space. The card can be configured as a quad transponder, eight regenerators or any combination of these functions. Using the enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) transceiver, as well as the standard SFP transceiver, the card can carry data rates from 10Mb/s to 10.7Gb/s providing the most comprehensive protocol support in the market and ensuring a future-proof card as SFP+ innovation and mass-market adoption continues. The RGN-8010 allows network operators to lock the data rate or protocol on a port to their client's service.

The RGN-8010 also offers Optelian's PRBS test solution where cards can be set up as pseudo-random binary sequence generators and detectors to validate connections between endpoints across the network.
