In booth #416 at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2018) in Rome, Italy (24-26 September), Source Photonics Inc of West Hills, CA, USA (which provides optical connectivity products for data centers, metro and access networks) and Keysight business Ixia of Calabasas, CA, USA (a provider of network test solutions) are demonstrating optical links with full-line-rate 400G Ethernet (400GE) live test traffic with pre-FEC (forward error correction) results utilizing Source Photonics’ 400G QSFP-DD LR8 transceivers and Ixia’s field-proven K400 QSFP-DD test system.

Demand for higher bandwidth continues to drive the need for faster transmission speeds in the data center, optical transport networks and metro networks. Source Photonics says that its several demonstrations in traffic test beds with small-form-factor 400G-LR8 QSFP-DD transceivers have shown that the 400G ecosystem is advancing and deployment of this higher data rate is imminent.

Source Photonics is now taking sample orders of the 400GBASE-LR8 QSFP-DD modules and is going into production in January 2019. The 400G portfolio will be complemented by QSFP-DD 400G-DR4 and 400G-FR4 transceivers, which will be available for sampling in fourth-quarter 2018 and first-quarter 2019, respectively.
