The is a QSFP28 form-factor transceiver for 100 Gbps Ethernet (100GBASE-SR4) applications. It is intended for use in inter- and intra-connect applications within data centers between switches, routers, storage equipment etc. The optical performance is in accordance with the 100GBASE-SR IEEE 802.3bm standard, i.e. for optical distances up to 100m over a MultiMode (MM) OM4-grade ribbon fiber.
Forward Error Correction (FEC) is required in the host equipment to ensure reliable system operation at the specified distance. The FEC type shall be as defined in IEEE802.3bj, i.e. Reed Solomon RS(528,514). The below 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-SR4 uses 4x channels @ 25.78 Gbps to transport a 100G Ethernet signal. The transceiver has a single 12 lane optical fiber MPO/MTP-connector interface.
