“We have worked closely with Avago to test a wide array of Corning Cable Systems’ fiber optic cables that contained Corning® ClearCurve® OM3 and OM4 multimode fibers with their parallel optic transceivers, giving designers the flexibility to develop innovative data center applications,” said Doug Coleman, Manager, Technology and Standards at Corning Cable Systems. “Together we verified that the interoperability of the Avago QSFP+ eSR4 modules meets link distance specifications for both 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet applications.”Legacy 10G Ethernet switches are based on 10GBASE-SR specifications, using form factors such as SFP+, XFP and X2, which are not reliably interoperable with standard QSFP+ module 40GBASE-SR specifications. The Avago QSFP+ iSR4 and eSR4 modules are both interoperable with all of these form factors. Additionally, the modules both incorporate the unparalleled reliability of Avago 850-nm Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology and PIN detector technology, providing an effective 10 Gigabit port count of up to 176 ports within one rack. Avago will demonstrate the QSFP+ iSR4 and eSR4 modules, along with its broad portfolio of high-speed optical fiber solutions, in Corporate Village booth #1357 at the 2012 OFC/NFOEC exposition at the Los Angeles Convention Center from March 6-8. Interested parties can contact their local Avago sales office to arrange an appointment. Mitchell Fields, director of advanced technology solutions for fiber optics products at Avago, will be participating in two panel discussions at the show:
- Market Watch Panel IV on Advanced Integrated Photonics on March 8 from 10:15am-12:15pm
- The workshop entitled “ Optics in the Data Center: How Can We Efficiently Move and Control Large Amounts of Data?” on March 5 from 8:00am-11:00am.
