100G optical transceivers – The true harbingers of faster data communication
Posted on Sep 26, 2017 by cozlink.com
100G optical transceivers are the perfect communication solutions for the coming times. It is because the world is becoming increasingly dependent on services like faster content delivery, cloud services and IPTV facilities that need data centers to be more robust in architecture and functioning. 100G speed is said to be just the tip of the iceberg. The possibilities beyond 100G are endless and statistically speaking, the IP traffic would be handling the movement of around zillions of bytes of data, making it relevant for the network managers to shift to 100G networks. Types of 100G transceiversMarket of 100G transceivers is quite enriched. A number of 100G transceivers have been introduced to meet the compatibility demands of varying cabling specifications and data reach needs. Accordingly, 100G transceivers are classified as CXP optical module, CFP optical module, CFP2 optical module, CFP4 optical module and QSFP28 optical module. C stands for 100 in C-series optical modules. Cu..
With the growing demands for data transmission rate, the market of 100G optical module is also expanding rapidly. IEEE organization was designed two optical module standards for 100G network: 100G SR4 QSFP28 and 100G LR4 QSFP28. However, in practical application, due to the diversity of optical fiber link, these two standards are far from meeting the needs of deploying data centers in a cost-effective way. And thus CWDM4 MSA and 100G CLR4 league are also proposed 100G CWDM4 QSFP28 standard and 100G CLR4 QSFP28 standard which the transmission distance reaches 2km. Here the article will introduce 100G QSFP28 Transceiver that complied with these two standards.100G CWDM4 QSFP28 optical module100G CWDM4 QSFP28 is the standard announced by CWDM4 MSA in 2014, it is 100G transmission mode based on single-mode coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) technology. 100G CWDM4 QSFP28 optical module that complied with this standard adopts duplex LC interface, and using four central wavelength ..
With the growing demands for bandwidth that makes 100G network developed rapidly. 100G optical module is to be an important part of 100G network, and now many standards and form factors has been emerged on the market. Here we will introduce the related knowledge about 100G optical module in detail.The types of 100G optical moduleAccording to different form factor, 100G optical module can mainly be divided into CFP／CFP2／CFP4、CXP and QSFP28. Among them, CFP／CFP2／CFP4 and CXP is the early form factor of 100G optical module, but QSFP28 is the new-generation form factor of 100G optical module, which is become the mainstream form factor of 100G optical module now. The principle of 100G QSFP28 optical module is similar to 40G QSFP+’s which adopts the way of 4 x 25 Gbps to transmit 100G optical signal.CXP optical moduleThe transmission rate of CXP optical module can reach 12 x 10Gbps, supports hot-pluggable, is the supplement of CFP optical module in the Ethernet data center. The size of CXP i..
