The development of optical modules will be further diversified

Published in2016-04-19

  1. John Alliance, chairman of the Ethernet D'Ambrosia, noted that IEEE spent 40 years completing the standardization of 6 Ethernet rates, but at the same time it has 6 new rates of standardization work at the same time.

    The work of the original 25GbE working group has been completed and the work of the 50GbE and 200GbE working groups has now started. All 50G, 200G, and next generation 100G targets are based on 50G PAM4 building blocks. In order to increase the single-mode solution for 200GbE on the basis of shared technology, the 400GbE working group re - formulated the program. All this means that the three IEEE 802.3 working groups will define 12 additional high-speed (25G and above) optical interface standards.

    Scott Kipp from Boko Haram summed up IEEE's work as follows:


    The new optical module will have a new form of encapsulation

    In general, panel density must keep abreast of large data centers for horizontal and vertical development needs. Breakthroughs from modules to servers and from switches to switches have become increasingly important. To integrate more functional ports in the same space implies new encapsulation patterns and new interfaces. The Ethernet Alliance depicts a new interface in the diagram below:


    But the combination of all new optical PMD and packages with multiple electrical interfaces means that there will be a large wave module to be developed, that is to say, the development of optical modules will be further diversified.
