Optimize your Cabling Infrastructure for 100G

The sheer volume of data being transmitted, processed, and stored is leading to the inevitable migration to 100G. Data centers and enterprise networks have the critical task to effectively migrate existing infrastructures to higher network speeds.

With network upgrades and high-density installations come cost and space challenges. The QSFP28 Compatible Optical Transceiver is a low-power, high-density device used to reduce 100G deployment costs and complexities. The smaller form factor saves space and reduces networking equipment costs, allowing organizations to optimize their existing fiber cable infrastructure.

Selecting the correct QSFP28 transceiver can be as easy as evaluating the existing fiber cabling and application. Here’s a Quick Selection Guide to help you configure your fiber connection applications to the correct 100G transceiver type.

For example,

If your fiber connection is Multi-mode 12F MPO and you’re running the connection over OM3 Multi-mode Fibers, then you would use a QSFP28-SR4 Transceiver.
If your fiber connection is Single-mode Duplex LC under 2km, then you would use a QSFP28-CWDM4 Transceiver, and so on…
