July 10th, FS News - FS has recently updated a series of high-quality 400G modules and DAC cables, aiming at enriching professional 400G solutions to meet different high-bandwidth application requirements of the next-generation data center.

An insatiable demand for high-bandwidth networking has led to the fast progression from 100G to 200G and now to 400G, driving the rapid development and adoption of new 400G pluggable optical transceivers and switches. Following this irresistible trend, FS unveils another batch of 400G transceivers and DAC cables with compatible brands including Cisco and Juniper.

Besides, these innovative 400G modules and DAC cables have all undergone stringent optical testings and compatibility testings to ensure that all the 400G solutions are efficient and reliable, even though these testings for such high-speed network equipment are much more complicated and challenging.

FS has been enriching its 400G products, covering 400G optical transceivers, 400G DAC cables, as well as 400G switches and 16-fiber MTP® cables. FS will firmly continue to research and develop products and solutions to serve customers in a better way.
