Finisar 100G 4x28G Metro Tunable DWDM 30km (500km+ Amplified) CFP Optical Transceiver

Is 25G really more than 10G?

The new style of 100G CFP pluggable optics module builds on the 2nd Generation 100G Ethernet standard that was published in 2015 and uses four pairs of singlemode fibres each transmitting 25Gb/s of data using tuneable lasers in the C-band. This is an interesting halfway house between 10G wavelengths and the very expensive coherent 100G solutions using DP-QPSK. Because the module has no electronic dispersion compensation then it is necessary to do the dispersion compensation optically.

What is the next “Next Gen”?
When it comes to the technology of optical networks, we are constantly seeing changes. Some of these changes are evolutionary and some are revolutionary. So when does a technology development constitute a new ‘next’ generation and when is it just an extension of an existing generation?

Controlling information overload and avoiding obesity…

Two new courses have been born…we will now be offering two separate one week courses, the new Certified Optical Network Associate (CONA) foundation course and a revised edition of the Certified Optical Network Engineer (CONE) course which will now concentrate on the advanced technologies.
