CFP MSA transceiver module

The CFP modules use Reflex Photonics’ next generation, LightABLE packaging technology. The modules offer very high functionality and feature integration, accessible via an MDIO interface.

Single 40GBASE-SR4 / OTU3 transceiver modules

The single port 40 Gbps short-reach Ethernet CFP transceiver module provides significant system cost and power savings while maintaining form factor compatibility with longer reach optics. The Reflex 40GE CFP module is compliant to the CFP MSA standard as well as the IEEE 802.3ba specification for 40GBASE-SR4 links. The CFP modules’ MPO optical receptacle connects to industry standard 12 fiber multi-mode cable. The 40G port is also interoperable with a QSFP transceiver.

Dual 40GBASE-SR4 / OTU3 transceiver module

Designed to support the IEEE 40GBASE-SR4 link specification; the Dual 40G CFP transceiver offers 2 independent 40G Ethernet links in one CFP slot. The Reflex CFP transceiver has two MPO ports which connect to industry standard 12-fiber multi-mode fiber cable. Both MPO ports will inter-operate with equipment using 40GBASE-SR4 QSFP transceivers. The Dual 40GE CFP transceiver doesn’t require any special hardware and plugs into the same slot as 40GBASE-LR4, 100GBASE-SR10, and 100GBASE-LR4 CFP modules. So with only software changes, a CFP slot can change between two 40GE ports into a single 100GE port.

100GBASE-SR10 / OTU4 transceiver module

The CFP full-duplex modules offer 10 independent transmit and receive lanes, each capable of up to 11.2 Gbps operation per lane for an aggregate bandwidth of up to 112 Gbps over 100 meters of OM3 optical fiber. Designed for 100 Gbps Ethernet applications, the Reflex CFP module has a single MPO port which connects to an industry standard 2 × 12 multi-mode fiber cable.
