Data Center

Global adoption of online commerce, streaming video, social networking, and cloud services such as Software as a Service (SaaS) is driving rapid growth of the mega datacenter. The storage and computing requirements supported by the datacenters present new challenges to connectivity within the datacenter, in terms of bandwidth, transmission distance, power consumption, and cost.

The product portfolio offered by Source Photonics for datacenter and cloud applications effectively addresses these requirements and challenges. Covering data rates up to 100Gb/s in compact form factors, Source Photonics’ products enable both green field deployments and the upgrade of existing datacenters in a cost-effective manner. Supported interfaces include 40Gb/s short-reach (SR4) and long-reach (LR4) transceivers in a QSFP+ form-factor. The most recent addition to the portfolio, the 100Gb/s QSFP28 transceiver, is based on proprietary technology enabling industry-leading performance and cost.
