Avago samples 100G Transceivers
New generation of optical transceivers enables broad adoption of 100GbE links for data centres
Avago Technologies, a supplier of analogue interface components for wireless, wireline, storage and industrial applications, today announced sampling of its 100G QSFP28 SR4 and CFP4 LR4 transceiver module devices, the AFBR-89CDDZ and AFCT-8450Z, respectively.
"Avago is the industry leader in providing high-speed optical interconnects utilising proprietary short-wave parallel optic and long-wave WDM technologies. The availability of 100G QSFP28 and CFP4 transceivers shall enable broad adoption of 100GE fiber links for data centers and accelerate the transition of data networks to 100G speeds to meet the ever increasing demand for bandwidth," said Philip Gadd, senior vice president and general manager of the fibre optics product division at Avago.
The AFBR-89CDDZ QSFP28 transceiver is designed for 100GbE short-range data centre interconnects, compliant with IEEE 802.3 100GBASE-SR4 and 100m multi-mode fibre media.
The AFCT-8450Z CFP4 transceiver is designed for 100GbE long-range data communications, compliant with IEEE 802.3 100GBASE-LR4 and 10km single mode fiber media. The AFCT-8450Z is also compliant to OTN/OTL4.4 data applications
Both devices are based on Avago's proven integrated circuit and VCSEL technology.
The company will be showing the transceivers at the OFC 2015 exhibition in Los Angeles, California from March 24th to 26th 2015.
