Source Photonics demos 100G-LR4 interoperability between QSFP28 module and new CFP4 module

In booth 376 at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2014) in Cannes, France (22-24 September), optical communication product maker Source Photonics Inc of Chatsworth, CA, USA is giving a live demonstration of interoperability between its 100G-LR4 QSFP28 and 100G-LR4 CFP4 products, which represent the latest additions to the firm’s portfolio of small-form-factor high-data-rate products operating at 40G and 100G.

As part of the interoperability demonstration, Source Photonics has announced availability of its 100G CFP4 product, supporting both the IEEE 100GBase-LR4 standard as well as ITU-T OTU4 over 10km of standard single-mode fiber. The module is fully compliant to the CFP4 multi-source agreement (MSA), with power consumption below 6W, and performance features that makes it suitable for routing applications.

First demonstrated at March’s Optical Fiber Communication conference (OFC 2014) in San Francisco, Source Photonics’ 100G QSFP28 is claimed to be the first QSFP28 module to support the 100G-LR4 standard. Featuring a typical power consumption of 3.5W and supporting 10km transmission over single-mode fiber, the QSFP28 module enables high-density and low-latency applications in data centers and in carrier routing equipment. In addition to the standard LR4 interface, Source Photonics offers an ‘LR4-Lite’ version of the QSFP28 with reduced link budget and power dissipation, supporting 100G links up to 2km without the need for FEC. The Lite version is fully interoperable with standard 100GBase-LR4 interfaces for links up to 2km, presenting a highly flexible and cost-effective option for data-center and IP routing applications.
