The CFP Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) defines hot-pluggable optical transceiver form factors to enable 100Gb/s applications, including next-generation High Speed Ethernet (100GbE). Pluggable CFP transceivers will support the ultra-high bandwidth requirements of data communications and telecommunication networks that form the backbone of the internet.
10x10 MSA: Responding to the call by end-users and equipment manufacturers, the 10X10 MSA is established to deliver the industry’s lowest cost 100GbE solution over single-mode fiber.
CFP 100GBASE-LR4 / CFP 1000GBASE-ER module supports a link length of 10, 40km kilometers on standard single-mode fiber (SMF, G.652). 100 Gigabit Ethernet signal is carried over four wavelengths. Multiplexing and demultiplexing of the four wavelengths are managed within the device.
