(businesspress24) - Tustin, California, US and Cirencester, UK, October 12, 2020 – ProLabs, a global leader in optical networking and connectivity solutions, has launched its new QSFP28 100G ZR4 transceiver line at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo today – solving the challenge of 100G beyond 40km without amplification.

Achieving 100G speeds up to 80km, the QSFP28 100G ZR4 line offers an affordable and efficient solution for revolutionizing service network backhaul and distribution. Beyond infrastructural support, the range of transceivers also enable complete interoperability with the full catalogue of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) switches and routers, driving down costs and facilitating installation.

“Providing 100G services that reach beyond 40km in lower-cost QSFP28 ports is an integral performance and efficiency goal for service providers,” said Patrick Beard, Chief Technology Officer at ProLabs. “Recognizing this need, our transceivers maximize cost-efficiency and reliability without compromising on performance.”

By integrating Avalanche Photodiode (APD) receivers with Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) amplification, ProLabs has reduced the need for costly open-line systems in lieu of new cost-efficient upgrade paths. To guarantee implementation success, its expert engineers are also on standby for specification, diagnosis, and troubleshooting, ensuring seamless network upgrade deployments.

The QSFP20 100G ZR4 will be showcased with a wider portfolio of ProLabs’ latest solutions in 400G, coherent, tunable DWDM, and fiber monitoring. These include the CFP2-DCO coherent transceiver, the inventory-reducing ProTune™ Coding & Tuning System, and the Optical Monitoring Platform, ProLabs’ award-winning solution for automated fiber fault monitoring and alerting, and more.
