Mellanox and Oclaro Connect 100G PSM4 Silicon to 25Gb/s LR Transceivers

Mellanox Technologies has teamed up with Oclaro to connect Oclaro’s 1310nm LR (Long Reach) SFP28 transceiver line with Mellanox ’ 1550nm PSM4 transceivers, demonstrating the transparent interoperability between transceivers of differing wavelengths.

“Customers select PSM4 transceivers because they provide the most cost effective Ethernet links for reaches of 100m to 2km,” said Amir Prescher, senior vice president of business development, Mellanox Technologies. “We teamed up with industry leader Oclaro to demonstrate that PSM4 transceivers, with fiber breakout cables, can connect directly to four separate SFP28 LR transceivers. This enables next generation servers and storage appliances to be located anywhere in the data center or even across campus.”

“We are pleased to team with Mellanox Technologies to show our 1310nm LR transceivers working with Mellanox’s 1550nm transceivers,” said Yves LeMaitre, President, Optical Connectivity Business at Oclaro. “This illustrates the strength of our transceiver design as being capable of interoperating at multiple wavelengths.”
