TE Connectivity has recently released two great sources to be able to supply the market a 400G Ethernet speed. Such speeds have not yet reached the public and to date have only been talk of the century. The Connectivity company has recently released OSFP and QSFP-DD’s products of their own that will be able to reach such speeds.
Per a statement from TE Connectivity technologist, Nathan Tracy, expresses their dedication to bring their products to the market by stating,”
“At TE, we are focused on delivering products that make our world smarter, faster and more connected. Our OSFP and QSFP-DD products bring data center equipment into the 400GbE age.”
Previously released at the DesignCon that took place in Santa Clara, CA on February 1, 2018. The 400Gbe system was certified in the month of December of 2017 by the IEEE 802.3bs Ethernet Working Group.
This certification can only reassure that the TE Connectives newly released products are only a major stepping stone to its greater potential that the industry has in connecting at higher speeds.
Both the OSFP and the QSFP-DD share much of the similar characteristics but vary in many ways.
The Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable Double Density (QSFP-DD) is one of the two ways that TE has been able to obtain 400G speed. The name has been given the “Q” meaning quad (4). This method uses a series of four channel electrical interfaces each outlet providing a series of 100Gbe but divided into configurations of 25Gbe.
The OSFP has takes many of the same forms of the QSFP but is configured differently. Oppose to the 4 different channels the OSFP has eight different channels that each output a series of 25Gbe totaling 400Gbe.The O in the name is meant for “octal” (8) and SFP is meant for “small form factor pluggable.”
