Source Photonics Demonstrates the CWDM QSFP28 Single-Mode Transceiver at the 2015 ECOC Show in Spain

WEST HILLS, Calif., September 27, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE)–Source Photonics today announced demonstration of the CWDM QSFP28 single-mode transceiver operating in a 10km link at the 2015 ECOC show in Feria Valencia, Spain. The 3.5W QSFP28 transceiver is compliant to both the CWDM4 and CLR4 specifications and follows the production release and general availability of the first to market Source Photonics QSFP28 LR4 and LR4 Lite announced earlier this year. Featuring proprietary low power EML-based technology, the QSFP28 operates to 10km, allowing a link budget of 6.3dB while not requiring FEC. The longer reach and higher link budget capability will enable the transceiver to be used in otherwise dispersion limited environments and provide additional flexibility to deploy longer fiber routing inside the datacenter on the CWDM grid.

Source Photonics has designed the new CWDM4/CLR4 QSFP28 product on the same product and manufacturing platform as the LR4 and LR4 Lite versions, enabling rapid manufacturing ramp and leveraging existing manufacturing assets. With availability of the QSFP28 CWDM4/CLR4, LR4, LR4 Lite and CFP4 LR4/OTU4, Source Photonics can offer a complete suite of single-mode 100G solutions for inside datacenter, datacenter interconnect, routing, and client side transport applications.
