Optimize your short runs the AddOn way with our CWDM4-LITE solutions.
Data centers and service providers of all sizes have rapidly taken to WDM technologies to maximize their return on investment per each fiber run. Demand for high speeds and around the clock reliability continues to drive organizations to invest in their infrastructure to keep up.
With ballooning global consumer requirements, the investment costs in upgrades can push these mission critical upgrades out of the realm of possibility for those with limited budgets. Case in point, data centers cabled with OM3 multi-mode fiber desiring to reach 100 meters with 100Gb/s must decide to re-cable to OM4 multi-mode fiber or directly make the leap to single-mode fiber.
AddOn recognizes that economical transceiver solutions are required for data centers opting to future-proof their networks with single-mode fiber and are proud to announce our new economic QSFP28 form factor CWDM4-LITE transceiver solutions!
The QSFP28 CWDM4-LITE is the low cost yet high-performance solution that fits the niche for large-scale and even hyper scale data centers for intermediate and short reach applications but is equally applicable to smaller configurations only needing shorter reaches.
Our CWDM4-LITE solution is specified for…
- Achieving 100G speeds with unparalleled reliability
- Delivering CWDM4 signals over a 500m reach
- Relaxed operating temperatures (max +55C)
- Highly accessible price points for data centers and providers of all sizes
- Interoperability and connectivity
- OEM compatibility with leading OEM platforms.
The CWDM4-LITE specification meets the relaxed Open Compute “OCP” specification in contrast to the more stringent CWDM4 standard. With these more relaxed specifications come a more accessible price point, helping reduce inventory holding and upgrading expenses.
CWDM4-LITE transceivers carry the following operating parameters:
- Data Rate: 100G
- Form Factor: QSFP28
- Operating Temperature: +15C ~ 55C
- Power Consumption: <3.5W
The best part is, AddOn’s CWDM4-LITE transceivers are not only capable of expanding your network’s short reach yet high-speed capabilities—they’re also available when you need it. Minimize your lead times, especially those from the OEM vendors, with our fully interoperable, high quality, low cost CWDM4-LITE solutions for your short reach needs.
