CHATSWORTH, Calif.--()--Source Photonics Inc., a leading global provider of optical communication products used in telecommunication systems and data communication networks, announces the live demonstration of the low power consumption 100GBASE-LR4 CFP transceiver module, the CPL-A4-MR-LR-CLFB, at OFC 2013.
The 100G transceiver is designed to meet the growing market of high data rate applications in datacenter and telecom systems and features the following technical characteristics:
- Multi-rate support for 100GbE and OTU4 (802.3ba and ITU G.959.1) up to 111.8 Gb/S
- Low maximum power consumption of 14W (multi-rate) and 12W (Ethernet only) respectively
- Fully MSA compliant with high-speed CAUI electrical interface
- CFP package with straight or angled duplex-LC connector option
- MDIO interface with Digital Diagnostic Monitoring
The 2nd Gen 100G LR4 CFP module is the latest addition to the high data rate transceiver portfolio of Source Photonics and will go into production in the first half of 2013. Especially the low power consumption of under 14W (12W for Ethernet only applications) makes it attractive for high density applications were power dissipation is critical.
Next to the 100G modules, the high data rate portfolio covers 40G modules in CFP and QSFP+ form factor meeting the IEEE standard for SR4, LR4 and FR (40G serial) as well as for the proposed ER4 standard for applications that span 40km.
