CFP4 transceiver module

CFP4  MSA transceiver modules

The CFP4 is a 100 Gb/s transceiver module for optical communication and is available for either short reach or long reach application. 
The CFP4 for long reach application is  compliant to 100GBASE-LR4 of the IEEE P802.3ba standard. The module converts 4 input channels of 25 Gb/s electrical data to 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals and then multiplexes them into a single channel for 100 Gb/s optical transmission. Reversely on the receiver side, the module de-multiplexes a 100 Gb/s optical input into 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals and then converts them to 4 output channels of electrical data.
The CFP4 for short reach application is compliant to 100GBASE-SR4 of the IEEE P802.3bm standard. The module converts 4 input channels of 25 Gb/s electrical data to 4 channels of VCSEL optical signals over 4 multimode fibers for 100 Gb/s optical transmission. Reversely, on the receiver side, the module receives 4 channels of VCSEL optical signals over 4 multimode fibers and then converts them to 4 output channels of electrical data
