The SO-QSFP28-PSM4 is a QSFP28 form-factor transceiver for 100Gbps Ethernet applications. It is intended for use in inter- and intra-connect applications within and between data centers between switches, routers, storage equipment etc. The optical performance is based on the 100GBASE PSM4 MSA industry standard where the minimum required operating range is up to 500m over a SingleMode (SM) 8-fiber ribbon cable.
SO-QSFP28-PSM4 has an optical performance enabling distances of up to 2km over a SingleMode (SM) ribbon fiber. Forward Error Correction (FEC) is required to be implemented by the host to ensure reliable system operation. The FEC type shall be as defined in IEEE802.3bj, i.e. Reed Solomon RS(528,514). The optical parameters will provide a bit error ratio (BER) of 5 x 10-5. FEC will render in the required BER of better than 1 x 10-12.
SO-QSFP28-PSM4 uses four 1310nm channels/lanes @ 25.78 Gbps to transport the Ethernet signal. The transceiver has a single 12 lane optical fiber MPO/MTP-connector interface. Digital diagnostics functions (DDM) are available via an I2C interface, as specified by the QSFP28 MSA.
