Organizations around the world have flocked towards using Wavelength Division Modulation (WDM) to optimize and maximize the data transfer capabilities (and value) for each single run. With the world's newfound requirements for even higher speeds and uninterrupted reliability also come the forces driving up the importance to focus on infrastructure optimization efforts.
With ballooning global consumer requirements, the investment costs in upgrades can push these mission critical upgrades out of the realm of possibility for those with limited budgets. Case in point, data centers cabled with OM3 multi-mode fiber desiring to reach 100 meters with 100Gb/s must decide to re-cable to OM4 multi-mode fiber or directly make the leap to single-mode fiber-- costly decisions either way.
ProLabs is here to help. We've helped minimize those upgrade expenses to ensure that even the most economical budgets aren't left behind. Our economical transceiver solutions fit the bill for data centers opting to future-proof their networks with single-mode fiber. We're happy to reveal our new cost-efficient QSFP28 form factor CWDM4-LITE transceiver solutions!
The QSFP28 CWDM4-LITE line are the low cost, high-performance solutions that everyone from a single facility to large-scale and even hyper scale data centers need for intermediate and short reach applications.
Our CWDM4-LITE is designed for…
- 100G speeds with consistent reliability
- CWDM4 signal delivery up to a 500m distance
- Less stringent operating temperatures (max +55C)
- Low price points to serve data centers and providers of all sizes
- Seamless OEM interoperability
The CWDM4-LITE meets the Open Compute “OCP” specification. With these more relaxed specifications come the more accessible price point, helping reduce inventory holding and upgrading expenses.
CWDM4-LITE transceivers carry the following operating specifications:
- Data Rate: 100G
- Form Factor: QSFP28
- Operating Temperature: +15C ~ 55C
- Power Consumption: <3.5W
ProLabs’ CWDM4-LITE transceivers are available when you need it. Partnering with ProLabs means no longer being victims of delays and lead times. Minimize your waits, especially those from the OEM vendors, with our fully interoperable, high quality, low cost CWDM4-LITE solutions for your short reach needs.
