September 20, 2018 | First COBO-compliant optical modules to be debuted at ECOC 2018

The Consortium for On-Board Optics (COBO) will host the global premiere of the world’s first COBO-compliant optical modules at the ECOC Exhibition 2018. Featuring solutions from Molex, Ciena and SENKO, TE Connectivity, Credo, and AOI, the COBO-hosted showcase will reveal a glimpse into next-generation system architectures which mount on-board optical modules to printed circuit boards. A goal of COBO is to bring interoperable and interchangeable optical modules into the manufacturing of networking equipment to help address industry challenges, including continual traffic growth, the need for lower power consumption and the increasing speeds of networking technologies such as 400 Gigabit Ethernet.


September 20, 2018 | 100G Lambda MSA Announces Significant Progress Towards 100 Gb/s Optical Technology Product Maturity

The 100G Lambda Multisource Agreement (MSA) Group, which has rapidly grown to include 39 member companies, has announced the release D2.0 of three specifications based on 100 Gb/s per wavelength PAM4 optical technology. These specifications are targeting applications for data centers and service provider networks, enabling multi-vendor interoperability for optical transceivers produced by different manufacturers and in various form factors. These updated 100 GbE interface specifications are designated as 100G-FR and 100G-LR for duplex single mode links over 2 km and 10 km respectively. The MSA has also updated the 400G-FR4 specification for 400 GbE duplex single mode fiber links relying on multiplexing 4 wavelengths of 100 Gb/s PAM4 modulated optical signals. In addition, the MSA is also working on a 400G-LR4 specification for a 10 km reach at 400 GbE.
