Source Photonics Brings Latest 50G and 400G PAM4-based Optical Transceivers to Light at ECOC 2018

Participates in live Ethernet Alliance multi-vendor interoperability

will be participating in the Ethernet Alliance
interoperability demonstration showcasing live traffic-utilizing 50G and
400G PAM4-based optical transceivers in OEM equipment at ECOC 2018,
September 24-26 in Rome, Italy.

The live demonstration at the Ethernet Alliance Booth #618 will consist
of multiple 400G and 50G links among participating network and test
equipment manufacturers.

Source Photonics will contribute its 400GBASE-LR8 transceivers in
QSFP-DD and CFP8 form factor as well as its 50GBASE-LR QSFP28 modules.
Live traffic will be passed among the equipment of Ethernet Alliance
member companies including Exfo, Huawei, Ixia, Spirent and Viavi.

Ed Ulrichs, Director PLM, commented: “Source Photonics offers advance
solutions to support the migration to the next higher networking speed.
The demonstration of our latest 50G and 400G optical transceivers
attests the readiness of this technology for wide-scale deployment by
connecting them to the networking equipment of various OEMs and proving

Source Photonics is now accepting sample orders for the high speed 400G
QSFP-DD. The company is scheduled to go into production in January 2019.
This small form factor module enables the migration to the next higher
data rate in a wide field of applications such as datacenter
connectivity, optical transport networks and metro networks.

The 50G QSFP28 will be in full production late this year and will
support the expansion to converge networks in metro access and 5G
