CFP vs. CXP Optical Transceiver: Similarities More Than Differences?

It is known that there exist various similarities between CFP and CXP optical transceiver. For example, both of them are hot-pluggable, available for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s as well as support transmitting and receiving function, etc. On the surface, it seems that there are no differences between CFP and CXP optical transceiver. What Is CFP Optical Transceiver? CFP, short for C…

Do You Know These Tips about CFP Optical Transceivers?

On account that the size of CFP optical module is too large to meet the high-density demand of data center, the CFP-MSA Committee defines two new CFP series optical modules, namely CFP2 optical module and CFP4 optical module. Compared with the existing CFP, CFP2 and CFP4 will be respectively double and quadruple front panel port density, so 100G CFP optical…

How to Distinguish CFP and CXP Optical Transceivers

Even though CFP and CXP have similar abbreviations and appear almost simultaneously, their form factor is different in size, density, and target applications. CFP and CXP form factors are both hot-swappable, support for sending and receiving functions, and support for data rates of 40Gbps and 100Gbps. CFP is mainly targeted at 40G and 100G Ethernet applications support single-mode or multimode…

A Comprehensive Introduction to 100G Optics

These years, the deployment of the 100G network has been the development focus of the optical interconnect industry, which contributes to the fast development of 100G optics in data center markets. Currently, the 100G optical module mainly consists of CXP optics, CFP, CFP2, CFP4optical module and QSFP28 optical transceiver. Then this post will have a comprehensive introduction to 100G optic fiber…
