MoSys Demonstrates 100G Interoperability With CFP2/CPAK Modules And Support For OIF 25G Long-Reach Backplane Applications

Stocks in this article: MOSY

MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, participated in the recent OIF Interoperability 2013 event hosted by the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) and demonstrated successful connectivity and link support for CFP2 and CPAK modules, as well as for the OIF long reach standard (CEI-25G-LR), across backplanes from multiple vendors. The event featured OIF’s broadest display of live demonstrations to date and included nine demonstrations of 100G real-world implementations. MoSys participated in five of these 100G demonstrations, showcasing the industry-leading capability, interoperability and flexibility of its LineSpeed™ 100G Multi-Mode Gearbox and LineSpeed 100G Quad Retimer products.

A series of 100G CFP2/CPAK optical module interoperability demonstrations showcased both the electrical and optical ecosystem supporting 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and optical transport network (OTN) rates using 100GBASE-LR4 (10km of optical fiber). In the demonstrations, MoSys’ LineSpeed 100G gearbox (MSH310) successfully interoperated across the OIF CEI-28G-VSR electrical interface to modules from Cisco, Finisar and Fujitsu to enable 10 kilometer 100G traffic. The MSH310 gearbox is a multi-mode device with flexible support for 10G, 40G and 100G interfaces and the unique capability to support both short reach and long reach connection on both the 25/28G ports, as well as the 10/11G ports.

In another series of demonstrations, MoSys’ LineSpeed 100G retimer (MSH210) was used to demonstrate OIF CEI-25G-LR electrical support for channels across backplanes from Amphenol Corporation, Molex Incorporated and others. In these demonstrations, the MSH210 retimer drives and monitors four lanes of 25.78G using a PRBS-31 pattern across each participant’s backplane, connector and daughter card platforms representing greater than 25dB of insertion loss. Traffic was run in both directions, to include NeXT and FeXT in the system.

The multi-vendor interoperability demonstrations, including MoSys’ 100G solutions, took place at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) in London under the umbrella of the Optical Internetworking Forum’s multi-vendor event, OIF Interoperability 2013 – Enabling the Next-Generation of 100G Architectures during the ECOC 2013 exhibition. "The multi-vendor demonstrations of end-to-end 100G connectivity across multiple mediums signify the industry readiness to support high-density 100G solutions,” states John Monson, MoSys VP of Marketing. "We are pleased to confirm that our innovative 100G PHY technology supports the OIF standards and industry interoperability, and welcome the opportunity to work with the OIF and member companies to enable a healthy, stable and reliable ecosystem."

The OIF white paper, Multi-Vendor Interoperability Testing of CFP2, CPAK and QSFP28 with CEI-28GVSR and CEI-25G-LR Interface, provides details about the individual vendor components and the setup of each of the nine interoperability demonstrations. The paper is available for public download at
