Avago's latest 100G MicroPOD and MiniPOD optical modules extend beyond 500m

Avago Technologies Ltd (a designer and supplier of III-V-based analog components for communications, industrial and consumer applications) says that its latest series of MicroPOD and MiniPOD optical modules support 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) data transmission over a 550m link distance.

Avago and Corning Inc have collaborated to provide long-reach, high-density embedded optical connectivity solutions targeting 100G interconnects for data-center and enterprise network applications. The joint solutions enable data centers and enterprise networks to transition from 10G to 100G Ethernet while supporting a 400m link distance per IEEE 10G Ethernet standards and a 550m link distance using Corning’s PretiumEDGE Cables with Corning ClearCurve OM4 bend-insensitive multimode optical fiber.

“As the data network infrastructure transitions to 100G data speeds to meet high-bandwidth demands, the need for long-reach high-density 100G embedded optical connectivity is imperative for modern data centers and enterprise networks,” says Philip Gadd, VP & general manager of Avago’s Fiber Optics Product Division. “Together with Corning, we are now able to support a high-density 100G embedded optical link beyond 500m,” he adds.

“Corning has a long history of developing innovative fiber-optic technology, resulting in superior bandwidth performance for data centers,” says Stuart Hoiness, senior VP, Enterprise Networks, Corning Optical Communications. “We look forward to future collaboration with Avago and other industry leaders as we create the next generation of optical technologies that will transform data centers.”
