Overview of 100G QSFP28 Optical Transceivers
QSFP28 fiber optic module has become the dominant form factor for 100G high-speed networks. The interconnect offers multiple channels of high-speed differential signals with data rates ranging from 25Gbps up to potentially 40Gbps, and meets 100Gbps Ethernet (4×25Gbps) and 100Gbps 4X InfiniBand Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) requirements. TARLUZ 100G QSFP28 optical transceiver including SR4, LR4, PSM4, CWDM4 and AOCs, complied with IEEE 802.3bm and SFF-8636, compatible with network device from different vendors, designed for applications of 100G Data Center Internal Network, Data Center Interconnection and Metro Network.
The following list is QSFP28 fiber optic transceivers form TARLUZ, it is able to compatible with the main network device provider like Cisco, HPE, Huawei, etc.
QSFP28 SR4: The QSFP28-SR4 optical module supports links of 70m over OM3 MMF and 100m over OM4 MMF with MPO-12 or MTP-12 connectors. This transceiver is a parallel 100G QSFP28 optical module with 4 independent transmit and receive channels each capable of 25Gb/s operation. The 100G QSFP28-SR4 modules are ideal for rack to rack connections in the datacenter and short reach telecom applications.The QSFP28-100G-eSR4 is extended version of QSFP for transmit over 300m.
QSFP28 PSM4: The 100G PSM4 specification defines requirements for a point-to-point 100 Gbps link over eight single mode fibers (4 transmit and 4 receive) of at least 500m, each transmitting at 25Gbps. Four identical and independent lanes are used for each signal direction. PSM4 does not need a MUX/DEMUX for each laser but it does need either a directly modulated DFB laser (DML) or an external modulator for each fiber. With an MTP interface, PSM4 modules can bus 100Gbps point-to-point over 2km or can be broken out into dual 50Gbps or quad 25Gbps links for linking to servers, storage and other subsystems.
QSFP28 CWDM4: The CWDM4 module uses Mux/Demux technologies with 4 lanes of 25 Gbps optically multiplexed onto and demultiplexed from duplex single-mode fiber. It is centered around the 1310nm band with 20nm channel spacing as defined by the ITU standard. With a reach of 2km, QSFP28 CWDM4 transmits 100G optical signals via a duplex LC interface.
QSFP28 LR4: This module is for longer span 100GbE deployment, such as connectivity between two buildings, QSFP28-LR4 with duplex LC fiber interface and transmitted over single-mode fiber cable. This LR4 module uses WDM technologies to achieve 100G transmission over four different wavelengths around 1310nm. It can support distances up to 10km.
QSFP28 ER4 Lite: QSFP28-ER4 Lite is a 100Gbps transceiver designed for optical communication applications compliant to Ethernet 100GBASE-ER4 Lite standard. The high performance cooled LAN WDM EA-DFB transmitters and high sensitivity APD receivers provide superior performance for 100Gigabit Ethernet applications up to 25km links without FEC and 32km links with FEC.
