NeoPhotonics’ new 400G capable ClearLight CFP2-DCO transceiver is being shipped for end-customer trials. This is the industry’s first transceiver module able to deliver as much as 32 Terabits of capacity per fiber – significantly higher than today’s 200G CFP2-DCO capacity or the emerging 400G CFP2-DCO capacity.
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.
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.
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.
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.
