Today’s service provider networking environments and enterprise data centers are undergoing an infrastructure transformation, requiring higher speeds, greater scalability, and higher levels of performance and reliability to better meet the demands of business. As speed and performance needs increase, optical transceivers have become an integral part of overall system design. However, optical transceiver design margins and parameters vary widely, and can be the difference between an optimized, highly reliable fabric, and incompatibility issues that drive up support costs.
The Brocade® 100 Gbps LR4 (10 km) Ethernet optical transceiver, part of the Brocade family of optical transceivers, is optimized to fully leverage the Brocade MLXe 100 Gbps router. Together, these optical transceivers provide state-of-the-art performance, helping IT organizations achieve new levels of infrastructure consolidation while expanding the capabilities of their applications and services.
