Oclaro 100G QSFP28 transceiver targets singlemode data centre links

Oclaro has announced initial sampling of a 100G QSFP28 client-side transceiver that is ideally suited for 100G interconnections between data centre switches in addition to interfaces in high-end routers and packet-optical transport systems.

The new module meets both the CWDM4 MSA and CLR4 Alliance optical interface specifications, as well as the IEEE 802.3bm CAUI-4 electrical interface specification, in a single design that features low power consumption of 3.5W.
