Upgrade data centre speeds with CWDM4-LITE

- Advertisment -

Demand for high speeds and around the clock reliability continues to drive data centre operators to invest in their infrastructure. With consumer needs rising exponentially, the costs of future-proofing networks can prevent much-needed upgrades for those with limited budgets. For example, data centres cabled with OM3 multi-mode fibre designed to reach 100 metres with 100Gb/s must contemplate whether to re-cable to OM4 multi-mode fibre or make the leap to single-mode fibre in order to meet the rising demands,” explained Ray Hagen, Global Product Line Manager at ProLabs.

ProLabs’ cutting-edge solution offers a cost-effective alternative for data centres of all sizes to upgrade their networks to meet the ever-increasing data demands. The QSFP28 CWDM4-LITE transceivers can be adopted by large-scale and hyper-scale data centres for intermediate and short reach applications up to 500m but are equally applicable to smaller configurations that only require shorter reaches.

Designed to meet the relaxed Open Compute (OCP) specification in contrast to the more stringent CWDM4 (Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing 4) standard, its new range of transceivers offers a more accessible price point for data centres and providers of all sizes, helping reduce inventory holding and upgrade expenses – while ensuring they are ready to meet the demands of the future.

“Our CWDM4-LITE transceivers are not only capable of expanding a network’s reach and high-speed capabilities, but they are also available when you need them,” Offering complete interoperability and compatibility with leading Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), this solution has been proven to minimise lead times and effectively upgrade networks without sacrificing capabilities – providing fully interoperable, high-quality, low-cost CWDM4-LITE solutions for data centres’ short reach needs”. Hagen said.
