Introduction to 100G Optics – CFP and QSFP28 Transceivers

2015 witnessed the prosperity of the telecom market. Many research company predicts that the market of 2016 for the telecommunication field will continue to thrive. With such a bright future, the fiber optic market attracts wide attention and many vendors want a piece of the pie. At present, 40G is ubiquitous in the data center and 100G is accelerating. As…

QSFP+ Direct Attach Cable (DAC) Cables – Optimal Solution for 40G Interconnect

Believe it or not, the era of 1G or 10G Ethernet has already passed, and here comes the 40GbE. IEEE introduced the 802.3ba Ethernet standard in June 2010, since then enterprises like Cisco, HP and Juniper have devoted themselves to the development of 40G technology. A number of routers, switches, and network cards already operate at this speed. 40 GbE…

Are You Ready for Embracing 100G Ethernet?

Ethernet as the networking standards, enables computers to locally connect to each other, which is the ultra-strong backbone to the many networks we use every day. Although most of the Ethernet market is still running around 1 Gbqs or 10 Gbqs, there is a strong interest in higher data rates. Many hardware vendors like Cisco, Finisar, Huawei and Brocade have…

25G Ethernet Q&A

25G Ethernet, developed by IEEE 802.3 task force P802.3by is a newly proposed standard for Ethernet connectivity. After its appearance, the road to 100G is considered to be 10G→25G→100G. 25G Ethernet may be the quickest path to completion IEEE Ethernet standards effort to 100GbE. To unveil the mask of the mysterious 25G standard, this post offers some answers to help…

40G Bi-directional QSFP Transceiver

The virtualized workloads, cloud applications, and big data services today are driving previously server and data center fabric to an unimagined level. The existing 1Gbqs or 10Gbqs are gradually overwhelmed by higher-bandwidth like 40Gbps or 100Gbqs. Thus high-capacity optical technology and cabling infrastructure are required to support those servers and applications for 40Gbps upgrading. However, it might be too costly…
