Avago gives live demos of 32GFC, 40GE, 100GE and 128GFC transceiver technologies for next-gen data-centers and enterprise storage

In booth 1567 at the Optical Fiber Communication conference & exposition (OFC 2015) in Los Angeles (24-26 March), Avago Technologies is giving live demonstrations of its latest optical transceiver technologies for next-generation data-center and enterprise storage applications.  

As data-center networks transition to 100G speeds to support higher bandwidth demands, technical challenges emerge across various levels of the network from storage endpoints to servers to top-of-rack (ToR) and core switches. Avago says that it has re-thought the designs of chips, packaging, optics, modules and systems and developed new technologies addressing critical challenges of modern data-center design. The new technologies are designed to support new data speed requirements while preserving existing infrastructure and, more importantly, meet the growing needs of modern data centers.

Avago's demonstrations at OFC include the following:

  • vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL)-based optical PAM-4 technology for next-generation optical transceivers;
  • extended-reach 100G QSFP28 eSR4 transceivers communicating over 300m of multi-mode fiber (MMF);
  • 128GFC QSFP28 transceiver interoperating with 32GFC SFP+ transceivers;
  • 40G BiDi MMF QSFP+ transceivers operating over duplex fiber; and
  • PCIe-over-Optics ToR switch solution enabling high-density rack connectivity.

"Avago has consistently been in the forefront of data-center technologies," says Philip Gadd, senior VP & general manager of the Fiber Optics product division. "The great breadth of our new technologies showcasing at OFC 2015 further demonstrates Avago's leadership and continued commitment to addressing the growing data center market."
