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.
Welcome to my blog!
I’m generally pretty well known for having an opinion on all things to do with fibre optics, optical networking, training and standards.
I’ve been involved with fibre optics for more than 30 years and I'm passionate about promoting, and contributing to, professionalism in our industry.
OTT develops high quality professional training in fibre optics and optical networking. Our unique advanced certification courses are developed in-house by a world leading expert in fibre optics. In 2014 OTT began licensing our courses, such as the Certified Fibre Characterisation Engineer (CFCE), Certified Optical Network Associate (CONA), and Certified Optical Fibre Installer (COFI) to approved partner organisations to deliver around the world. Visit www.ott.co.uk for more information.
