Data Center Webinar Series: Port Breakout

This webinar will provide an overview of port breakout, defined as taking a parallel port and breaking it down to a lower speed port in the cabling (40G- 10G, etc.), and its implications on structured cabling. We will also cover a new trend of certain customers wanting to break out transceiver ports at the transceiver interface and not in the structured cabling. This trend is leading the industry to evaluate new smaller form factor connectors. We will introduce the proposed new connector designs and discuss the applications where they will potentially be used.

40Gb/s 100m QSFP+, Bi-Di, Duplex LC multimode fiber optic QSFP+ transceiver

Soptco has introduced a Four-Channel, Pluggable, LC Duplex, Fiber-Optic QSFP+ Transceiver for 40 Gigabit Ethernet Applications. This high-performance transceiver integrates four electrical data lanes in each direction into transmission over a single LC duplex fiber optic cable. The transceiver internally multiplexes an XLPPI 4x10G interface into two 20Gb/s electrical channels, transmitting and receiving each optically over one simplex LC fiber using bi-directional optics. Link distances up to 100 m using OM3 and 150m using OM4 optical fiber are supported. These modules operate over multimode fiber systems using a nominal wavelength of 850nm on one end and 900nm on the other end.

II-VI Incorporated’s 25 Gbps Wavelength-Tunable Transceivers for 5G Fronthaul Earn 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews High Score

II‐VI’s 25 Gbps wavelength-tunable transceivers received an Innovation Reviews High Score from Lightwave Magazine. II-VI’s 25 Gbps wavelength-tunable transceivers meet the CPRI 10 standard for 25 Gbps fronthaul links in a standard SFP28 pluggable form factor and over the full industrial temperature range. The transceivers support dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) across the C-band, dramatically increasing transmission capacity per fiber, thus virtually eliminating capacity constraints due to fiber scarcity.

A Revolution in Optical Aggregation Networks Is Coming

Today’s announcement from Infinera, on the industry’s first multipoint coherent transceiver technology, could very well be the next major network inflection point. XR optics technology, leveraging an innovative approach on the use of Nyquist subcarriers, enables a single transceiver to generate multiple, individually routable optical signals. The result is a single high-speed transceiver that can simultaneously communicate with numerous lower-speed transceivers, each with independent, dedicated data streams.

What hampered the deployment of 40G / 100G transceiver in data center? –

This article explores some practical problems and difficulties in the application of high-speed transceiver in the data center. For example, the 40G / 100G high-speed transceiver has not developed a revolutionary new photoelectric conversion technology, but by upgrading the manufacturing process, the original 10G transceiver technology to expand. In essence, for the 10G transceiver, by increasing the number of transceiver fiber to enhance the bandwidth. 

Recent transceiver standards solve data centre upgrade issues

While once cost prohibitive, 100G network upgrades are now a viable option to improve network performance. The emergence of the QSFP form factor has brought economies of scale to 100G upgrades, putting 100G within the cost reach of both small and hyper-scale data center operators. With a small profile and reduced power consumption, the QSFP form factor is the choice of switch manufacturers for 100G platforms.

Smart transceiver now supports both LonWorks and BACnet protocols

Adesto’s FT 6050 Smart Transceiver system-on-chip (SoC) now natively supports LON®, LON/IP, BACnet/IP, and BACnet MS/TP protocol stacks. This capability will help modernize and simplify automation and control networks, especially in smart buildings. Its open systems approach allows BACnet workstations and LON network manager and integrator tools to natively field-configure, provision, and monitor controllers as either LON or BACnet devices, or both.
