CAESAREA, ISRAEL: ColorChip, a world leading innovator in high speed optical networking and communications technology, announced sample availability of its quad small form factor pluggable plus (QSFP+) OTU-3 line rate transceiver module.
The new pluggable transceiver is designed to meet increasing bandwidth demand in today's data intensive applications. ColorChip QSFP+ OTU-3 module, which uses single mode optics has a line rate of 43.01Gbit/s and designed to work over a distance up to 10km, will be on display in the ColorChip booth during OFC/NFOEC, March 6-8, 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center
The 40GbE QSFP+ OTU-3 module extends the existing 40G QSFP+ family of products offered by ColorChip including the 40GBASE-LR4 QSFP+ IEEE 802.3ba compliant module. ColorChip introduced the IEEE 802.ba product line 2 years ago and has been in production over the last 6 months shipping thousands of modules. The product line offers OEMs a lower cost, longer reach alternative to traditional 40G Sonet/SDH client interfaces and makes 40G deployments even more economically viable in high speed switches and edge routers.
ColorChip 40GbE QSFP+ OTU-3 module will go into production in the second half of 2012.
