Infiberone 40G QSFP+ GEN2 Compare to 40G QSFP+

We have known that is common to realize multichannel real-time DDM function in transceivers with data rate lower than 10Gbps, but very complicated for those more than 10Gbps, as the latter is mostly based on COB not TO packaging technique.

“Multichannel parallel optical power real-time monitoring means more to optical network than single-channel transceiver, because any one channel of multichannel module having problem would lead to overall failure. Once it can realize multichannel simultaneous monitoring, it means 40G or 100G module is no longer an uncontrolled black box. With optical power monitoring loopback, engineers can design power automatic feedback compensation circuit, enable the modules adjust to wider temperature range and poor external environment. Multichannel simultaneous monitoring also assures vector compliance of every path." As a Infiberone product specialist told.

The main difference between 40G QSFP+ GEN2 and existing 40G QSFP+ on the market lies in the multichannel real-time DDM function. As for parallel high-speed optical transceiver with higher rate, it requires excellent design and precise layout to realize optic circuit detection on 4-channel or 12-channel array light chip in an extremely limited space, which has been met by Infiberone patented optical engine technology. Starting optical engine technology development since 2011, now by its own endeavor and cooperation with quality suppliers, Infiberone has gained rich experience and unique technology about array LENS development and integrated optical devices coupling capsulation.

Infiberone 100GBASE-LR4 Lite 4km QSFP28 Optical Transceiver


QSFP28 100GBASE-LR4 LAN_WDM 10km Transceiver is a 100Gb/s transceiver module designed for optical communication applications compliant to 100GBASE-LR4 Lite of the IEEE P802.3ba standard. The module converts 4 input channels of 25Gb/s electrical data to 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals and then multiplexes them into a single channel for 100Gb/s optical transmission. Reversely on the receiver side, the module de-multiplexes a 100Gb/s optical input into 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals and then converts them to 4 output channels of electrical data.

The central wavelengths of the 4 LAN WDM channels are 1295.56, 1300.05, 1304.58 and 1309.14 nm as members of the LAN WDM wavelength grid defined in IEEE 802.3ba.

Infiberone Optical Switch Introduction

Definition :
Optical switch is one kind of passive products that can switch on or block optical signals or change optical signals into other routes.

These switches are designed for use in re-configurable optical add/drop multiplexers, optical cross-connect systems, and network switching for fault protection.

Function :
OLP=Optical line protection
OLM=Optical Line monitoring
OBP=Optical bypass protection
ROADM=Reconfigurable optical ADD/DROP multiplexer
OXC=Optical cross connection
Testing ect.

Commonly Used Technological platforms
Mechanical Optical Switch
Magneto-optical Optical Switch
Mach-Zehnder interferometric switch
Thermo-Optic Switch
Acoustic Optical Switch
LC=Liquid crystal Optical switch
MEMS/Micro electro mechanical optical switch

For different platforms, the optical parameters are little different,
e.g. IL/CT/PDL/WDL/TDL/Repeatability.

Mechanical Optical Switch
Infiberone's Mechanical Optical switch falls into seven categories:

2x2 full;
2x2 Bypass;
2×4 (dual 1x2)
4x4 (dual 2x2 B)
Key Characteristics:
Switching time <=10ms,
 Repeatability<=0.04dB,
Durability Cycles ≥ 10 Million.

Application Scenario:
Fiber ring;
Automatic testing;
Remote control/monitoring;
Route Switchover;
System monitoring ;
Optical protection systems ;
Fiber sensor ect.

Application of Different optical switches:
1. 1×1 optical switch is usually used to block light path.
2. 1x2 Optical Switch:Usually used for optical line protection: OLP for short.
3. 2x2 Optical Switch:
Usually used for FDDI, Optical bypass protection, loopback testing ect.
3.1 2x2B  optical Switch

OBP=Optical bypass protection,with in-built 2x2 bypass switch to change the optical path, it can real-timely monitor optical power received  from R3 and R4, as well as the optical power launched from transmitters R1 and R2. OBP uses the same power supply with transceivers.  When local equipment functions normally, OBP changes back to normal routes, when local equipment is found abnormal or powered off, OBP will change to bypass routes, thus pass by local failure nodes.
