Circadiant Releases Industry's First 10 Gigabit SFP+ Test System

New SFF-8431 SFP+ compliance test card for the Hydra Platform

March 27, 2007: - Allentown, PA - Circadiant Systems, Inc.,the real-world signal testing company, today announced the release of its SFP+ test solution - the industry's first commercially available SFP+ compliance test system.


As port density on 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) line cards expands from 8 to 32 ports, line card manufacturers search for smaller and smaller optical interfaces. SFP+ is emerging as the optical interface of choice. The SFP+ form factor is the smallest 10G transceiver to date and promises to be the most cost effective. SFP+ could potentially position the 10GbE market to retrace the 1GE volume ramp resulting in millions of units per year.
