Hyper Photonix announces general availability of 800G DR8 optical transceivers


The company says the products, which are now in mass production, are intended to address the shortage of next-generation interconnects in light of the surging demand driven by AI applications

Hyper Photonix, a supplier of high-speed optical transceivers, has announced the general availability of its 800G DR8 products. The company says these transceivers leverage the power of Hyper Silicon, its patented silicon photonics platform, and demonstrate scalability of its 400G DR4 product line.

Hyper Photonix says its 800G optics are available in QSFP-DD112 and OSFP-112 form factors and 500 m to 10 km reach, and are compatible with NVIDIA/Infiniband and Ethernet ecosystems. With completion of comprehensive qualification testing, these 800G products are now in mass production at the company's high-volume automated manufacturing facility. According to Hyper Photonix, this milestone underscores the company’s commitment to delivering reliable, high-performance, cost-optimised, next-gen transceivers to its customers worldwide and bridging the gap in global optical interconnect supply and surging AI/ML-driven demand.

“Operators of large AI Clusters started to transition from using multi-mode fibre transceivers to longer reach single-mode fibre modules, including DR8,” commented Vladimir Kozlov, CEO and chief analyst at LightCounting. “Demand for single-mode 800G transceivers is likely to exceed our forecast in 2024 and triple in 2025. Large customers are concerned about the limited manufacturing capacity of their current suppliers and starting to qualify new vendors. It is great timing for the Hyper Photonix announcement.”

Xavier Clairardin, CEO of Hyper Photonix, said: “The 800G optical transceiver product line represents the company’s relentless pursuit of innovation and excellence. Built on the Hyper Silicon platform, these transceivers offer performance, reliability, and capacity tailored to the demands of hyperscale datacentres. The cost and power optimised design makes the QSFP-DD112 and OSFP-112 transceivers ideal for Ethernet and Infiniband AI/ML applications.”

Looking ahead, Hyper Photonix is expanding its portfolio of parallel single-mode optics further, and says it will announce additional 800G and 1.6T products later this year, including the linear pluggable optic (LPO) and active optical cable (AOC) configurations.
