Kaiam launches CWDM4 100G QSFP28 transceiver

Optical subsystems developer Kaiam has announced availability of its 100Gb/s QSFP28 transceiver. The uncooled CWDM transceiver is aimed at optical modules based on the CWDM4 and CLR4 multi-source agreements (MSA) for low-cost data centre applications.

Both the transceiver and 4x25Gb/s transmitter and receiver optical sub-assemblies (TOSA/ROSAs) are now sampling to select customers with volume production expected later in the year.

Feature

Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance

Feature

Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
