CFP MSA Publishes Revised Documents of Optical Transceivers Specifications

Opnext, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Finisar, and Avago Technologies announced that the CFP MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) has released the revised 1.4 version of the CFP MSA firmware and hardware specification documents. The three companies, namely, Opnext, Sumitomo Electric Industries and Finisar have welcomed CFP MSA’s new member, Avago Technologies.

The CFP MSA was formed with the aim of defining a pluggable optical transceiver form factor that can enable 100Gbps and 40Gbps applications, and High Speed Ethernet, 100GbE and 40GbE. The hot-pluggable transceivers support the high bandwidth needs of data and telecommunications networks.

The CFP MSA-compliant transceiver modules will be deployed on the 100Gbps and 40Gbps interfaces. In addition, the CFP MSA defines the specifications for the same transceiver form factor to support multiple applications. These multiple applications comprise several link distances, media types, such as single and multi mode optic fiber. Several others protocols such as 100GbE, OTU3, OC-768/STM-256 and 40GbE are also included in these applications. The CFP MSA uses several features namely, EMI management and thermal management. It also includes an improved electrical signal integrity design for defining the optical connector, the MDIO transceiver management interface, transceiver form factor and other hardware needed on the host board of the system.
