These are XFP-based. Thus, not a solution to the problem above.
Answer: Nobody's making 10GE CWDM-wavelength lasers. Why? I don't have
enough knowledge of optical equipment, but my understanding is that
it is because:
a) Currently DWDM component suppliers already have a full load of
orders and have problems scaling production - as evidenced by long
lead times on any DWDM optics.
b) They wouldn't be much cheaper to produce than
temperature-stabilized DWDM optics.
c) The demand is currently for amplifiable DWDM optics.
