Wave2Wave introduced a QSFP28 copper-based, direct attached cable (DAC) for data centers.
The new product, which expands the company's EDGE cable fabric family, simplifies the cabling for spine-and-leaf, data center infrastructure, and server rack-and-stack environments. The QSFP28 DAC offering supports higher data rates – now up to 100Gbp/s – with near-zero wire speed latency and no power consumption, reducing data center energy use, CAPEX and OPEX.
- Four-channel, full duplex passive copper cable transceiver
- Up to 25 Gbps per channel, maximum aggregate data rate of 100 Gbps
- Conforms to SFF-8665
- IEEE 802.3bg 100 GEBASE-CR4
- Copper link length up to 3 meters
- Power supply of +3.3V
- Low crosstalk
- I2C-based two-wire serial interface for EEPROM signature that can be customized
“The newest addition to the EDGE cable fabric family, QSFP28 DAC, cuts down time to deployment in the data center significantly,” said David Wang, founder and chief executive officer of Wave2Wave. “With these turn-key offerings, operators and integrators can build a spine-and-leaf cluster or a server rack with hundreds of cables within an hour – an undertaking that would typically take days to build otherwise.”
Wave2Wave Solution introduced a line of robotic optical switches for automating physical fiber connections in high-density data centers. The Wave2Wave "ROME" Robotic Optical Management Engine platforms, which are offered in three sizes, enable full control of physical fiber connections, allowing changes to be made automatically, remotely, quickly, and without manual intervention. The robotic systems are designed in 19-inch chassis. The company...
