Intel Debuts Optics for Data Center

Intel has announced that they will be shipping a silicon photonics module in data centers for 100Gpbs. Used in optical interconnects for data communications applications, the Intel Silicon Photonics 100Gbps  (Parallel Single Mode fibre 4-lane) PSM4 QSFP28 Optical Transceiver comes in a small form-factor with high speed and lower power consumption build.

The high bandwidth module supports 100GbE optical links over single-mode fibre which features like being compliant with PSM4 MSA optical interface specifications. Available in MTP/MPO ber pigtail or MTP/MPO receptacle optical connector version it has additional reach up to 2km. The compact  QSFP28 form factor allows for high faceplate density especially needed when dealing with  the networking equipment, it boasts compatibility with any single-mode ber connector/cable infrastructures.

Conversely the electrical interface is compliant with IEEE 802.3bm CAUI-4 standards enabling it to operate at temperatures ranging from 0 to 70oC. With 3.5 W maximum power dissipation, the full module diagnostics and control through 12C is also fully compliant with SFF-8636 spec. Diane Bryant the head of Intel’s data centre group believes that optics will be required into the servers as well over time.
