Abstract: The demand for long-distance data transmission is increasing day by day, and the 100G ZR4 80km optical module emerges as the times require. This article will introduce the performance parameters, applications and future development trends of 100G ZR4 80km optical transceivers.
The package form of 100G-ZR4 coherent optical module is QSFP28, the rate is 100G, the wavelength is LAN WDM (1295nm, 1300nm, 1305nm, 1310nm), the transmission distance is 80Km, the interface is LC, and it supports DDM function.
The 100G ZR4 80km optical module uses wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology to convert 4 channels of 25Gbps electrical signals into 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals, and then combine them into a single channel to achieve 100G optical transmission. 100G ZR4 conforms to relevant international standards, such as EMI and IEEE 802.3bs, etc., and supports 100G Ethernet protocol.
Data centers are moving toward full-fiber optics to address requirements such as scalability and high performance. With the increasing popularity of big data and cloud computing, the requirements for data center bandwidth and transmission distance are getting higher and higher. The launch of the 100G ZR4 80km optical module provides a more efficient and stable data transmission solution for the data center.
With the development of 5G communication technology, there are higher requirements for network bandwidth, delay, throughput and other indicators. The 100G ZR4 80km optical module just makes up for the shortcomings of traditional optical modules in long-distance transmission and greatly improves the performance of the network.
3Future development trend
The market share of 100G ZR4 80km optical modules will gradually increase. According to predictions, by 2025, the mobile traffic of global data centers will grow to the first ZB (gigabytes), and the corresponding data center network switching port bandwidth will reach 1TB/s. This will bring additional demand and provide a huge space for the future development of 100G ZR4 80km optical modules.
Conclusion: As a solution for long-distance transmission, 100G ZR4 80km optical modules will become mainstream modules for future data centers and networks. We believe that with the continuous innovation of technology and the continuous demand of the market, the 100G ZR4 80km optical module will be more widely used and promoted.
