TE Connectivity (TE) today announced a new 10 Gbps optical transport product called the Serial Link Combiner (SLC) that slashes the amount of fiber needed in a small cell network. TE’s SLC is a CPRI rate muxponder that can support up to 225 MHz of spectrum over a single fiber pair. The SLC combines up to three 3.072 Gbps fiber links to a single 9.8304 Gbps (10 Gbps) single-mode or multi-mode fiber pair. And each SLC chassis supports four 10 Gbps links for a combined 900 MHz of available transport capacity. The SLC is just one of the innovations TE will be showing at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
- SLC reduces fiber needed from up to three fiber pairs (six fiber strands), to a fiber pair (two fiber stands)
- SLC reduces fiber leasing requirements by up to 150%, reducing operational expenses
- Each SLC chassis supports four 10 Gbps links; each 10 Gbps link supports up to 225 MHz of RF spectrum transported over a single 10 Gbps fiber pair (two fiber strands)
- SLC allows for fiber reuse of existing fiber infrastructure
