Infiberone Providing All-round 100G VCSEL Optical Transceivers
There are various kinds of 100G VCSEL series products in Infiberone, up to February 2017; Infiberone is capable of providing 100G multimode VCSEL optical transceivers with packaging technology as follows:
CFPX series: CFP SR10 , CFP SR4*, CFP2 SR10, CFP2 SR4*, CFP4 SR4
QSFP28 series：QSFP28 SR4，QSFP28 AOC
The result that Infiberone is playing a pretty important role in the global optical interconnection field completely benefited from the persistence of 10 years adhering to the VCSEL technology strategy. Despite of the fact that Infiberone does not produce VCSEL chips itself, close relationship between Infiberone and global VCSEL chips supply chain is being strongly maintained. Infiberone is patented multiple unique and mature technologies with FA, which angle is 45; fiber optic LENS, which shares the same angle with FA, and multi-mode parallel optical engine. Thanks to the years of VCSEL technology platform from 10G TO 40G, and then to 100G multi-mode parallel optical transceivers, Infiberone always remains the first level in the global VCSEL optical transceivers industry.
Regarding the 100G VCSEL series optical transceivers products, Infiberone is able to provide both fully dimensional products and multiple alternatives to the customers; also, the compatibility is outstanding. Industry recognition speaking, Infiberone can be regarded as the leading manufacturer of multi-mode VCSEL technology, which, as a matter of fact, only be second to FINISAR. Compared to other first-rate VCSEL optical transceivers manufacturers, the technology is about to be equally matched. The only difference rests with the advantages of low cost and expandability that Infiberone possesses. When it comes to CFP equipments, the original 100G CFP SR4 & 100g CFP2 SR4 multi-mode optical transceivers with Gearbox chips installed inside that Infiberone developed could solve the issue of lateral interconnection between 100G CFP old interface device and 100G BASE-SR4 new customers. Easily speaking, it realizes the interconnection between the 100G SFP multi-mode interface and QSFP 28 multi-mode interface.
Low cost: because both of the technologies of VCSEL optical transceivers and production platform are created by Infiberone itself, thus, the cost of coaxial package technology and COB technology have been optimized to be close to the edge. The delivery advantage has helped Infiberone winning strong support from the suppliers. Moreover, almost zero refund rate of multi-mode VCSEL products that Infiberone keeps helps to lower the cost.
Challenge & opportunity: currently, the main problem lies in the transmission bandwidth of multi-mode fiber along with the improvement of modulation rate of VCSEL, which requires other VCSEL with different features to be matched with. For example, if we adopt PAM4 to transmit signals, then the VCESEL will be needed to have a fairly wide dynamic range of modulation. For the future high-speed 200G/400G VCSEL optical transceivers, GIGALIHT’S VCSEL optical transceiver will use the same technical framework and the same technology platform, mutual penetration between platforms. By making sure that the core components of optical engines of multi-mode parallel optical transceivers will be developed toward the future 200G/400G optical transceivers modulated by PAM4, the nature of hero can still be showed.
