Advanced data centre optical transceiver manufacturer, Kaiam has initiated a strategic transceiver reserve program, intended to protect US and European data centres from the effects of a US-China trade war.
Kaiam Corporation’s enhanced series of 100G ‘CWDM4+’ transceivers is now available. The company says that the transceivers offer higher performance than the CWDM4 standard and are optimised as well as tested for added reliability.
Kaiam, a developer of high-performance datacom optical transceivers, has launched LightScale2, an upgraded optical integration platform enabling ‘unprecedented’ performance and scalability. The company is currently sampling CWDM4 100G QSFP28s modules based on this architecture.
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.
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
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
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
