Luxtera Debuts 1310nm 100G-PSM4 QSFP28 Module and Silicon Photonics Chipset at OFC 2015

Lars Frank, Vice President, Program Management, DU Network Functions and Cloud, Ericsson

Lars Frank, Vice President, Program Management, DU Network Functions and Cloud, Ericsson says: “With the growing demands of the hyperscale datacenter, Ericsson has seen single mode optics become an increasingly critical part of the system network and PSM4 is a critical element in the design of the HDS8000 optical interconnect. As data rates and reaches have increased, the limitations of contemporary optics have become more apparent, forcing end users to choose between low cost and long reach, placing hard constraints on datacenter architects. Luxtera’s 100G-PSM4 silicon photonics solutions change this paradigm, by allowing long reach and low cost with best in class performance.”

John Sontag, Vice President, Systems Research, HP Labs

“We’d like to congratulate Luxtera on their achievement in bringing their 100Gbps silicon photonic technology to market,” said John Sontag, Vice President, Systems Research, HP Labs. “Luxtera’s new 100Gbps PSM4 MSA compliant modules demonstrate the viability of low-cost, high-bandwidth photonic interconnects, which will accelerate the development of hyperscale cloud data centers and ultimately The Machine, HP Labs’ research project to reinvent computing from the ground up.”

Industry Ecosystem Partners:

Jeff Waters, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Altera

“As Altera’s FPGAs increase in performance with faster signaling and more I/Os, breaking high-speed signaling in and out of our devices using traditional electrical channels becomes a greater challenge. Optical high-speed interfaces and silicon photonics provide a compelling option for addressing this challenge,” said Jeff Waters, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Altera Business Units. “Luxtera’s silicon photonics technology complements our FPGAs in providing low-cost, low-power and high-throughput optical modules to address the bandwidth and signaling requirements for data center applications.”

Frank Ostojic, Senior Vice President and General Manager, ASIC Products Division, Avago

“Avago's industry leading 25-32Gbps SerDes family is designed into a broad range of networking ASICs. Avago is committed to providing leading-edge SerDes to enable our customers to address the ever-increasing demand for networking bandwidth,” said Frank Ostojic, Senior Vice president and General Manager of Avago’s ASIC Products Division. "We are pleased to see the availability of Luxtera’s 100G-PSM4 modules, a critical requirement of many hyperscale datacenter applications and early adopters of 100Gbps systems.”

Nick Kucharewski, Vice President, Network Switch Marketing, Broadcom

“Broadcom’s StrataXGS® Tomahawk and StrataDNX™ Switch Series are driving the 25/50/100G Ethernet upgrade cycle for networking hardware across cloud data centers and carrier networks. The broad availability of high-quality, economical 100G optics is key for this transition. We are excited to be collaborating with Luxtera on reference designs featuring their 100G-PSM4 optical solutions.”

Dr. Ho-Ming Tong, President, Cyntec & Component Business Group, Delta Electronics

“Delta is quickly becoming a world leader in optics and it views silicon photonics as a key technology for 100G systems and beyond,” said Dr. Ho-Ming Tong, President, Cyntec & Component Products Business Group, Delta Electronics. “Luxtera’s silicon photonic’s based 100G-PSM4 products support Delta’s goal of driving market leadership by simultaneously allowing low cost and long reach over a common single mode fiber plant.”

Industry Analyst:

Dale Murray, Principal Analyst, Light Counting Market Research

“The move to 25G server connections will accelerate the market need for cost-effective 100G switch-to-switch links with datacenter reach,” stated Dale Murray, Principal Analyst, Light Counting Market Research. “We believe that 100G-PSM4 modules are a good application for Silicon Photonics and will become a popular choice for large data centers that want to upgrade from multimode fiber.”
