Waystream launches additional superlowpower SFP for 10Gbit/s

Swedish technology company Waystream launches a new series of superlowpower-SFP modules for network equipment. The new modules supports up to 10Gbit/s speed and gives businesses and operators a quick and easy way to reduce their climate emissions. Lower power consumption means lower greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity. In addition money is saved on the electricity bill. Lower power consumption also means less heat dissipation from the network equipment and that leads to a double savings if active cooling is used for the network equipment.

The new modules, that work with all kinds of network equipment, is compatible with standard-SFPs. For 10Gbit/s the power consumption is reduced with up to 50% per module. Waystream also offers superlowpower-SFPs for speeds up to 1Gbit/s.

"All businesses need to work on reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. Superlowpower-SFPs from Waystream is a quick and easy way to reduce emissions caused by the active equipment in corporate enterprise networks, datacenters or fiber broadband networks. They provide real savings in the power consumption of all network equipment where they are used and the reduction has a direct impact on the electricity bill, but also a positive effect on the climate as the connection between how electricity is generated and the amount of greenhouse gases that emits is well known", says Fredrik Nyman, product manager at Waystream.

Among the new models of SFPs are also a 10Gbit/s SFP that is backwards compatible in speed and wavelength with the type of customer premise equipment used in today's fiber networks. This simplifies the upgrade process for city networks and operators as the access equipment can be upgraded to 10Gbit/s while still remaining fully backwards compatible and then allowing individual customers to be upgraded as needed without unnecessary truck rolls or fork lift upgrades.
