Applied Optoelectronics Announces Immediate Availability of 10km 100G QSFP28 Modules
The new product family supports hyperscale datacenters, datacenter interconnects, and backhaul applications for metro and mobile networks. The modules consume less than 3.5W of power and support 100Gbps transmission over 10km duplex single-mode fiber. The modules are based on the same CWDM wavelength grid as existing 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 2km modules, and are interoperable with CWDM4-compliant modules up to 2km. The transceivers leverage AOI's industry-leading manufacturing capacity and vertical integration, with in-house 25G laser diodes, light engine packaging, and module production.
The new modules are important to hyperscale datacenter operators who need solutions to extend interconnect distances beyond 2km, a realm that had previously been served by more expensive solutions relying on coherent optics or other specialized designs. By enabling longer distances while still being interoperable with shorter distance modules, this solution reduces cost and simplifies network planning.
"We are very proud to extend our already-broad 100G portfolio to 10km applications, bringing our low-cost and vertically-integrated solutions not only to intra-datacenter, but also datacenter interconnect and backhaul applications," commented Dr.
