Source Photonics Announces Shipment of 10,000 Single Mode 100G QSFP28 Modules

WEST HILLS, Calif., January 14, 2016 (BUSINESS WIRE)–Source Photonics is pleased to announce the shipment of its 10,000th single mode 100G QSFP28 module. Source Photonics began production shipments of 10km QSFP28 LR4 and 2km QSFP28 LR4-Lite modules in Q1 2015 after a successful introduction and sampling program with several leading customer-partners throughout 2014. Major applications for this first-to-market technology include cloud scale and Web 2.0 data centers worldwide and represent the first single mode 100G modules deployed in data centers, signifying the beginning of the transition from a 10G/40G data center architecture to a 25G/100G architecture.

“Potential market opportunity for 100G optics in mega data centers has been making headlines over the last 3 years, attracting many new suppliers and technologies” – commented Vladimir Kozlov, CEO and founder of LightCounting Market Research. “The early shipments data from Source Photonics clearly shows that this opportunity is real. We expect that shipments of these products will exceed 100,000 units in the first 6-9 months of 2016.”

Due to high demand, Source Photonics expects to leverage a vertically integrated operations infrastructure to meet the needs of customers as QSFP28 moves deeper into the data center fabric. Source will also exhibit its full portfolio of 100G products and demonstrate next generation technologies from its broadening portfolio of higher speed products at OFC in Anaheim Convention Center, booth number 2709, from March 22-24, 2016.
