Source Photonics, Inc. Key Developments

Source Photonics Announces Shipment of 10,000 Single Mode 100G QSFP28 modules

Source Photonics announced the shipment of its 10,000th single mode 100G QSFP28 module. Source Photonics began production shipments of 10km QSFP28 LR4 and 2km QSFP28 LR4-Lite modules in the first quarter of 2015 after a successful introduction and sampling program with several customer-partners throughout 2014. Major applications for this first-to-market technology include cloud scale and Web 2.0 data centers worldwide and represent the first single mode 100G modules deployed in data centers, signifying the beginning of the transition from a 10G/40G data center architecture to a 25G/100G architecture.

Source Photonics Announces Availability of Extreme Temperature-Hardened SFP+ Transceivers for Wireless Infrastructure Applications

Source Photonics announced the addition of extreme temperature-hardened products to the portfolio of CPRI SFP+ transceivers for antenna front-haul in wireless infrastructure deployments. The new 10G LR-Lite SFP+ modules will operate to full spec compliance up to a case temperature of 90C with standards-compliant power dissipation. The extended temperature range facilitates deployment of more compact and efficient remote radio units (RRU), enabling higher density and more efficient use of infrastructure and tower investment. The new 90C LR-Lite SFP+ product is based on 10G laser chips developed and manufactured in Source Photonics’ own InP foundry; it has successfully completed all Telcordia GR-468 requirements for 90C operation, and is available for volume orders. The extreme temperature SFP+ builds on Source Photonics’ market and innovation leadership established with first-to-market release of the 6G 2-km SFP+ used in 3G networks and the 10G LR-Lite deployed widely in LTE networks globally. With a broad portfolio of temperature-hardened interfaces covering CPRI data rates from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s in single- and dual-fiber versions, as well as key WDM interfaces for deployments where fiber economy is critical, Source Photonics products support a wide range of wireless network architecture options. The 90C SFP+ is the newest addition to this portfolio improving tower infrastructure return on investment in addition to network architecture alternatives.
