These are officially supported media types. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org to request support for an additional media type, and we will try to accommodate your request.
10GBASE-BX ports utilize 1330nm TX, 1270 RX bi-directional single fibre transceivers with -4dBm transmit power and -14dBm receive sensitivity (20km typical range). Many switch vendors refer to these as Downstream transceivers. Participants will need an Upstream transceiver with 1270 TX, 1330 RX bi-directional transceiver. A single fibre cross-connect, which contain two fibres, can be split to connect to two ports using 10GBASE-BX.
10GBASE-ER ports utilize 1550nm transceivers with 0dBm transmit power and -16dBm receive sensitivity (40km typical range).
10GBASE-DWDM ports utilize 100Ghz grid (Ch 21 to Ch 60) DWDM transceivers with 0dBm transmit power and -23dBm receive sensitivity (80km typical range). Please specify your required channel on the applicable Service Order.
