Source Photonics Announces a Suite of 400G Client Transceivers for Datacenter and Telecom Applications

WEST HILLS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#100G–Source Photonics, a leading vendor of optical connectivity products for
Access and Datacom applications, today announced its range of 400G
Client transceivers including the 400G QSFP-DD FR8/LR8 module for
Datacenter applications and the 400G CFP8 FR8/LR8 module for Telecom

The 400G QSFP-DD is designed to be compliant with the IEEE 802.3bs
400GBASE- LR8/FR8 and QSFP-DD MSA specifications for links up to 10 km.
The 400G CFP8 FR8/LR8 is designed to be compliant with the IEEE 802.3bs
400GBASE- LR8/FR8 and CFP MSA specifications for links up to 10 km.

“We are proving to the market that multiple 400G offerings will be
available in the short term to support connectivity between transport,
routing and switching equipment. Operators can now believe a strong
foundation exists to plan network upgrades,” says Ed Ulrichs, Director
of PLM at Source Photonics. “Both of these transceivers will be
available for customer samples in early Q2 2018,” continued Mr. Ulrichs.

Source Photonics will demonstrate an error-free link between their 400G
QSFP-DD LR8 and 400G CFP8 LR8 at OFC 2018 from March 13-15, proving that
links up to 10km can soon upgrade from 100G to 400G, therefore
significantly reducing total cost of ownership in the aggregation layer.

“We have successfully integrated our industry-leading signal integrity
work with novel optical coupling concepts to demonstrate the highest
density optical transceiver ever. Since we use a common manufacturing
platform with our 100G products, we are confident we will be the first
in the market to scale this platform,” says Sheng Zhang, Chief Scientist
at Source Photonics.

In addition to the 400G product announcements, Source Photonics will
showcase a wide range of optical connectivity products including AOCs,
100G QSFP28 SR4, CWDM4, LR4, OTU4, and ER4 Lite, and 400G QSFP-DD SR8
modules at OFC booth number 3921. For more information about these
