Supply Photonics releases 800G optical transceivers for information heart and telecommunications functions
Source Photonics announced a range of 800G optical transceivers for data center and telecommunications applications during the OFC 2021 virtual event.
With the first wave of large scale 400G deployments happening in the data center, hyperscale data center customers are already looking to 800G and beyond, along with the release of 25.6T switching ASIC to meet the growing demand for bandwidth-intensive applications to support.
The 800G client interfaces will not only double the port density compared to currently available 400G transceivers, but should also further reduce the performance per gigabit and the costs compared to comparable 400G client interfaces.
Source Photonics works closely with key customers to ensure that these solutions meet market requirements for these critical applications. Source Photonics leverages vertical integration for optical chips and assemblies that enable performance and power consumption. The portfolio of 800G transceivers for switching and routing applications includes:
800G DR8 OSFP & QSFP-DD800
- Supports 500m, 2km and 10km ranges for 800G-DR8, 800G-DR8 + or 800G-DR8 ++
