S-3553LC20D, S+2332LC10D, S-4554LC80D, and XS+2733LC15D MikroTik BIDI kits explained
Un-bundling MikroTik BIDI kits
When looking for MikroTik BIDI transceivers, it is easier to find two (both wavelength transceivers) MikroTik BIDI transceivers in one search, such as S-3553LC20D, S+2332LC10D, S-4554LC80D, and XS+2733LC15D. Why so? MikroTik, on the other hand, sells BiDirectional transceivers in kits. They each have a unique Part Number that corresponds to both sides of the link, A and B. MikroTik S-3553LC20D Part Number, for example, includes both the 1.25Gbps 20km Industrial A side (S-35LC20D) and the B side transceiver (S-53LC20D). So far, there are four kits or bundles of MikroTik BiDirectional transceivers covering data rates ranging from 1Gbps to 25Gbps. In the table below we have unbundled them and connected with matching products from our portfolio.

Short Theory about BIDI Transceivers
BiDi transceivers use WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) to provide full duplex optical communication over a single fiber. This is accomplished by using two independent signals that differ in wavelength, such as 1310nm/1550nm, 1310nm/1490nm, or 1270/1330nm.
