Molex, Optical Internetworking Forum Join to Demonstrate Interconnect Speeds of Over 100 Gb/s

At the ECOC 2012 Exhibition in Amsterdam, Molex will join other members of the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) to demonstrate interconnect speeds of more than 100 Gb/s. Live demonstrations of OIF interoperability are to be held at the event.

The Molex zQSFP+ interconnects, which are touted to be the first QSFP-based interconnects to demonstrate data rates of more than 100 Gb/s at 25.78 Gb/s per lane will be showcased at the event. The Molex zQSFP+ electrical interconnects and zQSFP+ Active Optical Cable transmit up to 4 km rates while supporting OIF’s 100 Gb/s Inifiniband Enhanced Data Rate, 100 Gb/s Ethernet applications, and CEI-28G-VSR interfaces. The transmission is achieved with low power consumption, good EMI protection, signal integrity and cooling.

The OIF is the first demonstration of 28 Gb/s interconnects with a Molex zQSFP+ Active Optical Cable and retimers. Live demonstrations will be held throughout the show. The interoperability demonstrations are to be held at the booth #269 in the ECOC 2012 exhibition. Industry experts from Molex will be available at booth #512 for discussions on end-to-end high-speed interconnect solutions.

The demonstration of the high-speed multi-channel system’s interoperability has shown the possibility of future high-speed connectivity, which is a potential requirement for bandwidth-intensive communications systems.

The ECOC 2012 is an optical communications event for the fiber optic technology industry. It is scheduled to be held from 17 to 19 September, 2012 in The Netherlands at the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam.
