Centera Will Demonstrate Its 100G-CWDM4 Transceiver Family in OFC 2017

Centera’s 100G-eCWDM4 (10 km) Transceiver will Replace Your Current-Use 100Gbp-LR4 with Cost Effective Solution

Centera Photonics Inc., a silicon optical engine solution provider for data center interconnects, will demonstrate its CWDM4 Transceiver Family in OFC 2017. The high performance CWDM4 Product Family consists three types of transceivers: e-CWDM4 (4WDM compatible), CWDM4 and CWDM4-OCP.
CWDM4 Product Family Reaches Status
e-CWDM4 (4WDM) 10km beta
CWDM4 2km beta
CWDM4-OCP 500m Available Q3’17
All three types of transceivers are with four-channel QSFP28 form factor, designed for linkage of 100Gbps Ethernet from 500m to 10 km via a single mode fiber. The data is transmitted bi-directionally with aggregate 100Gbps bandwidth by four coarse WDM wavelength at 1271nm, 1291nm, 1311nm and 1331nm. The optical interface is composed of a single mode optical cable with a standard duplex LC connector. The optical transceiver module utilizes Centera’s MEMS based optical engine designs and System in Package (SIP) integration technology, altogether with selected high quality DBF laser and PIN PDs to achieve reliable packet communication within datacenters.
