New consortium to pioneer 100G CLR4 adoption

Silicon based manufacturers, Intel and Arista spearheaded the creation,

The 100G CLR4 Alliance was organised by a group of industry leaders, major data centre providers, networking companies and optical vendors who are in support of a transceiver based upon 100G CWDM (Coarse Division Multiplexing) LR4 (4 wavelengths) in the 1310nm window and 20nm spacing, hence “CLR4.”

Although many of the 100G CLR4 Alliance members manufacture silicon based products, III-V experts are also members; these include Oclaro, Neophotonics, Fujitsu and MACOM.

Alliance partners believe that this approach will enable the rapid development and adoption of this market segment. Conversely, the lack of low-cost, 100G transceivers may become an impediment to the adoption of advanced CPUs, Flash, SSDs and switching silicon to build the next generation systems for cloud, HPC and enterprise data centres. This alliance may evolve into an MSA over time.
