Opnext Ships QSFP+ 40GBASE-LR4 Transceiver

Opnext has begun commercial shipments of its QSFP+ 40GBASE-LR4 transceiver for data center and enterprise networks.

Opnext said its QSFP+ 40GBASE-LR4 transceiver offers up to 100 times the reach of current QSFP+ SR4 solutions while improving on industry metrics as compared to the CFP form factor—power consumption is reduced by more than 50 percent and almost 80 percent less faceplate surface area is occupied.

"QSFP+ is emerging as the standard for 40GbE. Adding the QSFP+ 40GBASE-LR4 product offering to our portfolio enables substantially higher port density and significantly lower power consumption for our customers," said Rich Zoccolillo, President of Opnext's pluggables business unit. "With the QSFP+ 40GBASE-LR4 transceiver, Opnext is introducing a low cost integration and packaging technology for multiple long reach DFB lasers—all inside a module no larger than a pack of gum."http://
