Lumentum Enhances 100G Long-Reach Datacom Portfolio

Targets hyperscale datacentre, enterprise and telecom network applications

Lumentum has added two new transceiver product families - QSFP28 LR4 and QSFP28 4WDM-10 - to its 100G datacom transceiver product portfolio. These products target hyperscale datacentre, enterprise and telecom network applications. These products are available now and will be on display at OFC 2017 from March 20 "“ 23, 2017, in Los Angeles, California.

"The QSFP28 LR4 and QSFP28 4WDM-10 products from Lumentum leverage and extend our existing strong technology and vertical integration," said Kevin Affolter, senior director, product line management, Datacom.

"These solutions will be used by Hyperscale service providers and Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs) alike. At Lumentum, we place great emphasis on product performance, quality and reliability based on rigorous testing, without sacrificing our focus on delivering cost-effective solutions. We are excited to broaden our engagements with leading Hyperscale and NEM customers globally, as the build-out of 100G networks continues."

Based on the QSFP28 form factor, both the Lumentum 100G LR4 and 100G 4WDM are single mode duplex transceiver solutions for 10km reach. In the case of the 4WDM-10 product, this is enabled through the implementation of forward error correction (FEC) by the host.

The QSFP28 LR4 supports dual-rate operation with power consumption less than 3.5W. Both devices incorporate Lumentum's EML (electro-absorption modulator laser) technology that provides performance benefits for higher speeds (≥ 100G) and longer distance transmission applications.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
