Welcome back to FS Monthly Products Update! We have enriched our transceiver product family including 800G high-speed transceivers, DAC/AOC cables, and 10G industrial transceivers. And there are also lots of new products, such as 200G/400G muxponders, S5850 series switches, various cables, NMC-SNMP card, etc. Please keep reading about what's new.

800G Transceivers and Cables for High-speed Connectivity

In April, FS launched five new 800G transceivers, including 800G OSFP XDR4, 800G OSFP PLR8, 800G OSFP DR8, 800G QSFP-DD DR8, and 800G OSFP XDR8. They have a built-in Broadcom 7nm DSP chip with a maximum power consumption of 16.5W, saving energy and reducing heat dissipation. The newly launched 800G modules are in QSFP or QSFP-DD pluggable packages with great flexibility. The built-in digital diagnostics monitoring (DDM) enhances their reliability. Therefore, FS 800G transceivers are an ideal solution for higher bandwidth hyperscale data centers and cloud architectures.

To meet 800G connection requirements, FS also newly launched MTP®-16 OS2 Trunk cables and MTP®-16 breakout cables for use with the above 800G transceivers. Featuring US Conec MTP® Connector and Corning SMF-28® Ultra Fiber, these MTP cables are designed for high-density fiber patching in data centers, saving space and reducing cable management troubles.

200G Active DAC QSFP56 to QSFP56 ≤1.5W 33mm
400G AOC QSFP-DD to 4×QSFP56 400G <10W 30mm

10G Industrial Transceivers for Harsh Industrial Environments

FS released a 10G BiDi SFP+ module supporting up to 40km link lengths and a 10G ZR SFP+ module supporting up to 80km transmission. They also support advanced features like Class 1 laser safety and digital diagnostics monitoring, providing powerful performance and reliability. More importantly, the new 10G transceivers can operate in industrial temperatures ranging from -40° to 85°C and can work in harsh industrial environments, such as factories, rail and intelligent transportation systems, mines, etc.

Transponder & Muxponder & Open Line System

In April, FS launched a range of new products for high-capacity optical transport networks, including 200G/400G muxponder, EDFA, optical protection switch, and NX N40 stackable unloaded chassis. They support SDN management for flexible operation and feature the following highlights, making them ideal solutions for enterprise, data center, campus, and metro networks.

Cables' Colors Improvement for Convenient Cabling

According to the color-coding scheme, FS categorized or unifies MTP cables, regular patch cables, fiber cassettes, and fiber optic panels based on their colors to help customers distinguish these products conveniently and identify them quickly. For example, the number of cores of MTP cables can be distinguished by their jacket colors, which are gray for 8 cores, black for 12 cores, and red for 24 cores.

And FS also released customized OM4 MTP-12F cable and MTP-24F cable with rose connectors to further facilitate systematic cabling management. Similarly, to help clients simplify cable management, FS has launched Cat6a patch cords in red, yellow, and green.

In addition to the color-coding scheme for ease of management, FS cables ensure cabling flexibility and high-performance transmission, which are cost-effective solutions for various applications.
