In this blog post, we will provide a comprehensive introduction to 100GBASE LR4 technology. We will discuss the various components that make up 100GBASE LR4 systems, and we will offer some tips for deploying these systems in your own network. Stay tuned for more information on 100GBASE LR4!
What is 100GBASE LR4?
100GBASE LR4 refers to a type of fiber optic transceiver that is used for high-speed data transmission. The transceivers are typically implemented on PCBs and connected with duplex LC-type connectors. 100GBASE LR4 is a new standard of the 100 Gigabit Ethernet that has been specifically designed for long-reach connections of 10km. It uses four pairs of duplex fiber optic cables to transmit data at long distances. The 100GBASE-LR4 standard was introduced in June 2010.
The 100G QSFP28 LR4 optical module is a device that is used with LC single-mode fiber patch cord. It has the ability to send data over long distances and convert it from electrical signals into light. The maximum transmission distance can reach 10km. The 100GBASE-LR4 QSFP28 optical module converts 4 channels of 25Gbps electrical signals into 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals, and then multiplexes them into a single channel to achieve 100G optical transmission. At the receiving end, the module demultiplexes the 100G optical input into 4 channels of LAN WDM optical signals, and then converts them into 4 channels of electrical signal output channels.
