In the Ethernet Alliance booth #618 at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2018) in Rome, Italy (24-26 September), Source Photonics Inc of West Hills, CA, USA (which provides optical connectivity products for data centers, metro and access networks) is participating in an interoperability demonstration showcasing live traffic-utilizing 50G and 400G PAM4-based optical transceivers in OEM equipment, consisting of multiple links among participating network and test equipment manufacturers.

Source Photonics is contributing its 400GBASE-LR8 transceivers in QSFP-DD and CFP8 form factors as well as its 50GBASE-LR QSFP28 modules. Live traffic will be passed between the equipment of Ethernet Alliance member companies including Exfo, Huawei, Ixia, Spirent and Viavi.

“Source Photonics offers advance solutions to support the migration to the next higher networking speed,” says Ed Ulrichs, director PLM. “The demonstration of our latest 50G and 400G optical transceivers attests the readiness of this technology for wide-scale deployment by connecting them to the networking equipment of various OEMs and proving interoperability.”

Source Photonics is now accepting sample orders for the high-speed 400G QSFP-DD (scheduled to go into production in January). The small-form-factor module enables the migration to the next higher data rate in a wide field of applications such as data-center connectivity, optical transport networks and metro networks.

The 50G QSFP28 will be in full production late this year and will support the expansion to converge networks in metro access and 5G applications.
