Press release date: Nov 23, 2012

Toronto, Canada - GAO Comm ( is offering this Nortel compatible 1000Base-ZX GBIC transceiver which has a 1550 nm operating wavelength for single mode fiber (SMF). This transceiver is specially designed for WDM Gigabit Ethernet Links, Fiber Channel Links and SONET/SDH equipment interconnect.

This Nortel compatible 1000Base-ZX GBIC transceiver, model C01HG104, provides an operating data rate up to 1.25 Gb/s. It consists of two sections: the transmitter section incorporates an advanced DFB laser, and the receiver section uses an integrated InGaAs detector preamplifier (IDP) mounted in an optical header and a limiting post-amplifier IC. It boasts TTL RX-LOS output which simplifies interface to external circuitry.

This Nortel compatible 1000Base-ZX GBIC transceiver features a hot-pluggable SFP footprint, RoHS compliance, low power dissipation and metal enclosure for lower EMI. It is compliant with GBIC interface converters specification Rev. 5.5 as well as Gigabit Ethernet standard as specified in IEEE 802.3z. It is able to offer a long transmission distance up to 80 km over single mode fiber. In addition, a 20-pin SCA-2 host connector is used to connect the converter to the host system.
