The new TR-FC13R-N00 is a 100Gb/s transceiver module designed for optical communication applications compliant with 100GBASE-LR4 of the IEEE 802.3ba
The difference between the MLG and a standard gearbox based on IEEE 802.3ba
is that rather than requiring all 10 lanes to be bonded as 10x10G with zero ppm offset, MLG allows independent 10GE or 40GE lanes, separated by up to +/- 100ppm to be multiplexed into a single 100GE pipe.
The LineSpeed MSH110 IC is a single chip, CMOS device designed to support IEEE 802.3ba
and OIF CEI-3.0 electrical standards.
Depending on required distances, the speed foresees IEEE 802.3ba
different transmission methods.
The two most established 100-GbE optical transmission specifications, both covered in IEEE 802.3ba
, are long-reach 100GBASE-LR4 and extended-reach 100GBASE-ER4.
The device supports 100Gbps SR10 and 10x10Gbps Ethernet interconnects per IEEE 802.3ba
Clause 86 and 802.3ae Clause 52.
The IEEE 802.3ba
standard has a cabling skew of 79 ns.
NeoPhotonics added that its 40G transceiver is designed primarily to connect gigabit and terabit routers and switches with next generation high capacity transport systems and complies with the IEEE 802.3ba
40GBASE-LR4 specification and to support OTU3 rates and 44.4G for future applications.
The IEEE 802.3ba
standard, approved in June, defines specifications for both 40G bps and 100G bps connectivity.
Engineers testing IEEE 802.3ba
(40-Gb/100-Gb Ethernet), Optical Internetworking Forum CEI 3.0, INCITS T-11 32G Fibre Channel and high-speed proprietary systems will benefit from the measurement performance of Agilent's 86108B waveform analyzer.
"Such economics, coupled with the fact that the IEEE 802.3ba
standard for 40/100G Ethernet is still three to four months from approval, is keeping the demand subdued even though the interest in these technologies is relatively high.
