Feb. 23rd, Shenzhen, FS News – The fiber transceivers market shows the trend that 2016 is the year of 100G. To meet the demands on 100G market, FS recently made massive prices cut for the 100GBASE-SR4 and 100GBASE-LR4 QSFP28 modules.

100G QSFP28

At present market, the 100G form factors include CXP, CFP, CFP2, CPAK, CFP4 and QSFP28. CFP2 and CFP4 are widely used in 100G network. But QSFP28 demonstrates its great superiority that not only increases density but also decreases power and price per bit. It is reported that QSFP28 is fast becoming the universal data center form factor and promotes the booming of 100G.

Last year, FS introduced the 100GBASE-LR4 CFP2 and CFP4 which are well received by the customers. QSFP28, as a new form factor of 100G modules, was introduced in January this year with very attractive prices (See the previous release "FS Introduced Cost-Effective QSFP28 Transceiver Modules for 100G Data Center Applications".) and two types of QSFP28 optics are available—100GBASE-SR4 and 100GBASE-LR4. This month, we made massive prices cut for these two kinds of modules by cost control and technical enhancements, in order to better meet the 100G market demands and serve our customers. The price reduced rate of 100GBASE-SR4 QSFP28 is about 30% while of 100GBASE-LR4 QSFP28 is about 20%. The table below shows the product details.
