The QSFP28 ER4-Lite complements the Fibermall ER4-Lite CFP and CFP2, The samples are now available to ship. The ER4-Lite QSFP28 supports both 100GbE and OTU4 applications and supports up to 40 km with forwarding error correction (FEC), up to 30 km without FEC, and interoperates with existing ER4 solutions in the field up to 40 km.
The new ER4-Lite QSFP28 is compliant with the newly introduced ITU-T standard called G.959.1 4L1-9D1F and a new 4WDM-40 specification just released in July 2017 by the 4WDM MSA Group for 100GbE applications.
Fiber Mall 100G QSFP28 ER4 Optical Module
The Fibermall 100G QSFP28 ER4 own the ability to reach 40 km while maintaining low power and high-faceplate density, the new ER4-Lite QSFP28 transceivers enable customers in the metro edge and access networks to deploy high-speed 100G networks without the use of optical amplifiers. “Achieving volume production of these critical 100G transceivers is an important milestone for our layer 2 switch, core router, and optical transport system equipment manufacturers transitioning from 10G to 100G solutions,” said Yves LeMaitre, President, Optical Connectivity Business at Oclaro. “With the addition of an ER4-Lite solution to our growing 100G portfolio, Oclaro now has product offerings ranging from 2 km and 10 km up to 40 km. This allows tremendous flexibility for distributed data centers and metro optical network installations. “With the addition of an ER4-Lite solution to our growing 100G portfolio, Fibermall now has product offerings ranging from 100m,2km and 10 km up to 40 km.
