Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd.

Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd., a leading global provider of advanced optical solutions and Xilinx, a leading provider of All Programmable devices, will conduct a joint 100Gb/s Ethernet technology demonstration at OFC 2015 which is taking place March 24 - 26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

The QSFP28 is the exact same footprint as the 40G QSFP+ and is implemented with four 25 Gbps lanes. The QSFP28 module has an upgraded electrical interface to support signaling up to 28 Gbps. When compared to any of the other alternatives, 100G QSFP28 increases density and decreases power and price per bit. It is fast becoming the universal form factor for the data center.

The demonstration showcases the Xilinx Virtex® UltraScale™ device with integrated 100G Ethernet MAC driving a Sumitomo Electric QSFP28 LR4 optical module to support a 10km optical link.

This demonstration showcase will be held throughout OFC 2015 at Sumitomo Electric booth 1625.
