WaveSplitter Technologies Offers New 100G PSM4 Transceiver for Data Center Interconnect links up to 2 km
FREMONT ,CA- March 14, 2016 – WaveSplitter Technologies, Inc., a worldwide supplier of optical components and modules for advanced optical networks, today announced new 100Gbps IEEE compliant PSM4 transceivers targeted at High density, high performance applications found in High Performance Computing (HPC), warehouse mega data centers, and video distribution centers.
“As we adopt the 100G data rate in data center networking, reach for multimode optics is severely degraded due to the higher data rate. So PSM4 single mode transceivers become even more critical to span the distances within these large data centers. Wavesplitter is pleased to announce the new 100Gbps PSM4 transceiver which joins our existing 100G SR-4 and AOC family of transceivers and cables in order to address this high performance, fast growing area of the optical network market,” said Dr. Sheau Chen, CEO. “With the advent of the new switching chips that accommodate 25 Gbps lanes, 100Gbps suddenly becomes an economic reality for warehouse data centers High Performance Computing applications,” said Dr. Chen. “Originally developed for the needs of the 40Gbps transceiver applications, These new 100Gbps PSM4 transceivers utilize our Photonic System Integration in our proven Silicon Optical Bench, eliminating the need for standard TO-style can-based TOSA and ROSA. This unique silicon photonics minimizes manual labor needed for assembly and testing and maximizes component yield, making them ideal for lower cost, high-volume applications.”
Wavesplitter’s 100G PSM4 transceivers allow customers to utilize bring lowest cost, highest performance interconnect for longer reaches up to 500m in the data center or video distribution locations. They are meant to be used in datacom networking equipment such as 100GbEthernet switches and routers, load balancers, and high speed data and video servers.
The transceivers are packaged in a QSFP28 compliant form factor and works in any QSFP28 compliant line card. Engineering units are available in April for customers to qualify in their networks, with production units available in Q2 2016.
