NeoPhotonics Samples Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 Transceivers

NeoPhotonics has commenced sampling of its Dual Rate 100G LR4 CFP2 for 100G Client side applications. The 100G LR4 CFP2 requires less than half the power is one half of the size of the currently shipping 100G LR4 CFP form factor, thus making it an attractive form factor for bandwidth hungry data center applications where both faceplate port density and lower electrical power are highly desired.

NeoPhotonics’ 100G LR4 CFP2 transceiver is designed to fully comply with the IEEE 802.3ba 100GBASE-LR4 standard for links up to 10km and also supports the higher OTU4 datarate for telecom applications. The transceiver utilizes a 4-channel PIC-based integrated transmitter based on NeoPhotonics’ proven high performance, high volume manufacturing platform for 28G EML lasers and drivers, which are designed to meet stringent OTU-4 optical performance requirements.

“The introduction of our second 100G Client transceiver module underlines our commitment to the ultra-high speed segment of the transceiver market,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We are pleased to support our customers with a growing portfolio of high performance Client side transceivers based on our proven 28G EML laser and driver technologies and to facilitate the rapidly expanding 100G market with cost-effective pluggable solutions,” continued Mr. Jenks.
