Shenzhen, China, July 21, 2017 – To meet the requirements of modern ultra-large data center expansion, Gigalight independently developed a cost-effective 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 optical module.

The optical module adopts self-encapsulated light engine, which integrates 4-channel 25Gbps uncooled CWDM DFB lasers (1271 nm, 1311 nm and 1331 nm), 4-channel photodetector, CDRs and miniaturized AWG chips, etc., The typical power consumption is less than 2.6W at full temperature (0 ~ 70 ℃), and optical eye image margin is better than 20%, sensitivity (pre-fec 1e-5ber oma) <-10.5dBm. The product BER is better than 1x10-12 for post FEC applications and uses a duplex LC optical interface to meet the 2KM transmission protocol requirements.

In recent years,the date center has maintained a high speed expansion and a higher demand for single port rate.100G is becoming more and more popular in data centers. Since 2016, Gigalight began to actively layout 100G QSFP28 PSM4 and 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 optical modules and solutions,in March 2017 officially released PSM4 version of the optical module.The current 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 optical module uses the AAWG chip and the original COB process technology platform, with good temperature stability, suitable for parallel architecture data center expansion or wavelength division multiplexing data center optical interconnect architecture.

Gigalight is the advocate of 10G/40G/100G multi-mode optical module products and marketing in date center ,and maintains a keen insight into technology and cost .Based on the demand of ultra-large date center ,Gigalight actively prepare and layout long-distance date center single-mode optical module technology and market .The successful development of 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 optical module has opened a new competitive strength  for the data center  strategy.

It is expected that the 100G QSFP28 CWDM4 module will be into mass production in Q4 this year ,can now accept sample order.The sample price is $580.
