PeakOptical A/S is ready for 400G technology! The new standard QSFP-DD (Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable Double Density) is arriving soon!
The high-density, high-speed form factor module runs 400G (4x100G / 8x 50G) and it is backward compatible with QSFP+ and QSFP28 (40/100G). It supports 8 high-speed electrical interfaces connecting to the host and can accommodate both fiber optical and copper interfaces.
The “Double Density” term underlines that the number of high-speed electrical interfaces supported by the new module is doubled compared to the QSFP28. Its 8-lane interface increases the bandwidth, channel capacity and port density. The connector specifications for the new format support 50Gbs/s, this results in increasing the port speed for the QSFP-DD by 4 times.
The QSFP-DD’s mechanical interface on the host board will be somewhat deeper than for QSFP28, in order to accommodate an additional line of contacts. As for the width and height, they are going to be equivalent to the QSFP.
PeakOptical A/S is planning to launch:
400G QSFP-DD SR8 = 8x50G Multimode 100m reach
400G QSFP-DD DR4 = 4x 100G Singlemode 500m reach
400G QSFP-DD FR4 = 4x 100G Singlemode 2km reach
400G QSFP-DD LR4 = 4x 100G Singlemode 10km reach
400G QSFP-DD DAC cables
400G QSFP-DD AOC cables
