Today InnoLight Technology, the leading provider in next generation cloud computing optical transceivers services, announced volume shipments of a complete suite of QSFP28 products. InnoLight also announced the availability of Industry's first 400G OSFP at OFC 2017.
With the convergence of Telecom, Mobile, Enterprise, and Data Center networks into cloud network architecture, the demand for ubiquitous, high bandwidth and low cost optics just exploded. 100G QSFP28 has become the de-facto standard for optical interconnects for the cloud networks. On a $/Gbit basis, 100G QSFP28 is more cost effective than 10G SFP+ and 40G QSFP+, and in some cases, by a significant margin. Due to this unrivaled price performance, all industry participants are rapidly rolling out QSFP28 connections. To support this rapid adoption, InnoLight has introduced the most comprehensive portfolio of QSFP28 optics in the industry:
Altogether, InnoLight currently has 17 QSFP28 parts in mass production. Beyond 100G, the next milestone is 400G. To enable 400G expansion, InnoLight will introduce and conduct a live demo of Industry's first 400G OSFP optics at OFC in Los Angeles this year.
"4X architecture has been proven as the most cost effective optical platform for high bandwidth optics. This platform has become the dominant solution in both 40G and 100G. We expect this platform to continue its success into 400G, either in 4x50Gx2 or 4X100G architecture. InnoLight is aggressively driving 400G development in both OSFP and QSFP-DD form factors to continue to deliver the best price performance optics in the industry," said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer of InnoLight Technology.
