Reflex Photonics, a leading supplier of extreme high-speed optical components that enable high-bandwidth short-reach optical connectivity, today announced the completion of reliability qualification for its 100 Gbps CFP transceivers that are implemented using Reflex Photonics’ proprietary LightABLE™ technology.
The full compliance of the Reflex 100GBASE-SR10 transceiver as tested per the Telcordia GR-468 standard, is a large milestone for Reflex, as this was the first 100GBASE-SR10 CFP to come to market.
The Reflex 100GBASE-SR10 transceiver, compatible with both 100GE and OTU4 data rates, offers significant advantages in cost and power dissipation over competing LR4 options. Reflex’s proprietary LightABLE optical engine enables industry-leading low power dissipation and easily creates a roadmap to smaller form factors such as CFP2 and CFP4. With a reach of over 300 m on standard OM3 fiber, the Reflex CFP module outperforms the IEEE specification by a factor of 3.
Ken Ahmad, Reflex’s CEO, states, “After more than 3 years of hard work and innovation, our 100GBASE-SR10 transceivers are now fully qualified and available commercially to the market in production quantities. With the SR10 CFP, Reflex is enabling the fiber optic data market with a cost effective path for upgrading to 100 Gbps links.”
